Dimitry, Andrei and the Sea Cliff Studio
Hook Life was inspired by a moment –
you know the kind.
A bass swirls. An osprey screeches. A star falls from the sky. And suddenly you are awake, alive and connected to life on the water in a moment of grace.
Sea Cliff, Long Island USA Hook Life was born as a bumper sticker. A simple, stylized hook unencumbered by words and images – an emblem of life on the water.
Created by Dimitry, an artist with a marine biology degree and an angling addiction, our iconic sticker quickly spread to cars, pick-ups and boats across Long Island. When he put the mark on fishing clothes, Hook Life took off.
Inspired by the oceans, Dimitry designed beautiful marine art EcoMotif® in maritime colors and patterns. Today our water life gear with the Hook Life emblem and beautiful marine art inspires anglers, boaters, surfers and sun-seekers.
We believe in direct action to clean and protect our coastal waters. Your purchases help support oyster reef restoration for clean and healthy marine ecosystems. Thank you.
Share Our Catch and Release Moment
Fish long enough and you’ll find yourself angling less for fish than for moments of grace on the water. Suddenly everything changes. You release your fish, stringing moments together instead...
