Post Falls, ID, March 30, 2020 – Fillet Away Fish Mats is revolutionizing the process of prepping fish. Their fisherman-approved food prep mat features a non-slip surface that is durable and easy to clean. This offers a convenient way to fillet your fish, big or small.

Peter Ylitalo, owner and creator of Fillet Away Fish Mats says, “Fillet Away Fish Mats started on a guided fishing trip on the Columbia River in July of 2015. Watching the guide fillet our fish (about 40 walleye) and then attempt to clean the AstroTurf mat left me thinking that there had to be a better solution. I had 3 goals in mind when I started developing the fillet mat. First, it had to ‘grip’ the fish to keep it from sliding around. Second, it had to clean quickly and easily. Third, it had to be made in the USA. Before long, a mold was built and testing began. With input from several guides in the Tri-Cities, Washington Area, the mold was changed a number of times to achieve a mat that really held the fish well. Fillet Away Fish Mats are proudly made in the USA in Post Falls, Idaho. Producing them in the US does add to the cost, but going back to my original goals, I intend to keep it that way.”

Fillet Away Fish Mats are great for use at home, on the boat, or on a camping trip. You can use it anywhere and on any flat surface. The mat works well on countertops, cook stations, picnic tables, docks, or on top of your cooler or tailgate. The mat’s unique design helps fish stay put in place without any sliding. So, there’s no need for a fish fillet clip or chasing fish around your fillet station. You simply apply a light pressure on the fish to secure it to the pegs of the mat. For filleting extra large fish, you can set two mats up end to end.

The Fillet Away Fish Mat is made from a flexible material with a durable design. It’s easy to fold and carry for on-the-go fishing excursions. It’s odor-free with a non-porous surface made from TPV rubber. This means that the mat won’t absorb any fish oils or smells. The mat also supplies proper drainage for optimal fillet performance. Fillet Away Fish Mats are easy to clean by submerging in water or spraying off with a hose. The mats are also dishwasher safe.

Fillet Away Fish Mats are available in one, two, or three packs. The product is 100% Made in the USA and is even backed by a 30-Day satisfaction guarantee.
