Where it all started…
Established in 2010 by Ryan Heaton and Greg Myles, RGBaits initially started out as more of a hobby than a business, with plans to roll bait for a small group of angling friends only, a single machine set up in a parents garage is where it all began.
With both partners in full time employment away from the angling industry back then, occasional evenings and weekends were spent stood behind the machine rolling the odd kilo here and there, a somewhat far cry from a major scale bait manufacturing outfit. With time, word spread about the services RG had to offer and after receiving numerous enquiries over the possible supply of bait, it was decided the sale of bait was to be made public.
Profits gained from sales were ploughed back into the company on a yearly basis with machinery being the focus of investment and after just two years of trading, RGBaits purchased a third rolling machine. Three machines meant customers had the choice of three different sized baits, making the services on offer from RG appeal to a much wider audience. Some six months from obtaining the third machine, demand reached such a point the parents garage was simply outgrown, it was at this stage when the day jobs were quit, business premises were acquired and the owners took the plunge into full time bait making.
In the February of 2019 Ryan Heaton parted ways with the business, seeking a new career and with Greg Myles wanting to progress the business further, Greg purchased Ryans fifty percent stake in RG Baits. 2019 has seen RG Baits grow at a phenomenal rate, the RG brand is now well established in the UK market and is found in many Angling Direct and Fishing Republic stores along with numerous independent retailers.
