Like it or not, if you live an outdoor lifestyle, you have a certain appreciation for a well designed off road vehicle.
When I first saw this 1992 Ford F150, designed and built by OGRE in Pisgah Forest, I fell in love. Now, I’m a Toyota guy through and through, but I’m also a fishing guy, and this is a fishing truck.
I recently met Jason Bowman, owner of OGRE, at a fly fishing tournament in Highlands, N.C. Turns out, we knew a lot of the same folks and he was a part of the Outdoor Gear Builders of WNC. After a couple drinks and talking about my failed first fishing tournament, he offered to take me and a buddy out in Pisgah to show us the ropes.
A couple weeks later, we swung by his shop for a Pisgah Trout Unlimited meeting and got to watch a couple films from the F3T tour. We shared some beers, watched some fishing, talked about kiosks, and of course, checked out this beautiful machine.
