The word “launch” is universally understood by anglers as the act of casting off a raft into the river for a fun-filled day of fishing. However, local Delta fishing equipment provider and entrepreneur, Chris Mortimer, is ready for another kind of launch—one where he introduces his new business and a line of unique gear specifically designed for the “wilderness athlete.”
On Saturday, February 27th, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, a soft opening for Mortimer’s new business, MortBuilt, will take place at the Delta County Economic Development (DCED) office located on 145 S. 4th Street. Attendees can pop in to view the equipment and meet the creator.
Mortimer will unveil his distinctive line of products, including a one-of-a-kind, light weight, aluminum-framed folding rafting chair that is durable and built to last in the most rugged environments. In addition to the fly fishing world, Mortimer’s multipurpose products are branded for other outdoor enthusiasts.
