David Diggs is a native of North Carolina and has been an avid outdoorsman his entire life. A big fan of the "Santee Special", David had the opportunity to purchase the company in the summer of 2016. The thought of owning a small, family-run business that fed his passion for fishing and the outdoors was more than he could pass up. David is looking forward to continuing the long-standing tradition of Santee Rod Holders, as well as pursuing new products to help fishermen catch that fish of a lifetime.
