About Dick Pinney
Founder of Hard Core Hand Care

Dick has spent a lot of his lifetime working and playing in the outdoors. Outdoor work pursuits include commercial hook and line striped bass fishing, commercial Bluefin Tuna fishing, small boat handline fishing, charter boat striper guiding and Coast Guard licensed captain, former New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officer with both coastal and inland duties, and tenure as a New Hampshire fish and Game Commissioner.

Dick is a published author and has written professionally about outdoor sports for decades. He is featured weekly in the NH Union Leader, the largest statewide newspaper. He is also a columnist for Hawkeye Magazine and Northwood's Sporting Journal. Dick has also produced the Kittery Trading Post's Insider Weekly Fishing Report for two decades (

In-between these activities he's an avid recreational fisherman in both salt and freshwater, loves his waterfowl hunting on both ocean and inland, and in the past spent a lot of time in the woods chasing whitetail deer. Dick and wife, Jane, live on the shore of Great Bay in Greenland, NH.

In 2017 Hard Core Hand Care received a makeover! We updated our website, back end software, and our product line to include a fragrance free salve. Hard Core Hand Care is now a subsidiary of w.o.d.welder, a natural hand care company equally as dedicated to its customers as Dick and Jane have been for years. We look forward to continuing to serve our tremendous customers with the best all natural outdoor essentials on earth.
