Unusual Fishing Tackle

Fishing tackle manufacturers have always been looking for ways to improve on their tackle. New materials and blending processes usually provide what manufacturers are looking for to vastly improve on their fishing gear. By creating a more versatile and convenient piece of tackle, the fishing industry can be set alight and new trends can be set.

Over the last decade or so, tackle has come on leaps and bounds to provide fishermen with the very best at this moment in time. I wonder if their discount fishing tackle actually caught them more fish than the more sophisticated tackle of today?

The knee jerk

The knee jerk hook set is the most comfortable fishing apparel available to anglers today. Comfortable enough to wear all day, it is engineered to accommodate virtually any size leg and fishing rod. Not only does this fishing rod holder free up an anglers hands, the curved shape of the base frame against the surface of a leg, provides an immediate “ feel “of any activity surrounding a bait or lure. This causes an instant reflex reaction, and through various movements of the leg, a hook can be set.

Blinky - The Simpsons

‘Blinky’ is the most well known mutant fish on the planet. Born and bred in Lake Springfield it is another product of the nuclear waste of Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. Now used to catch bigger and weirder fish, Blinky is now a world wide known fishing bait!

Overhead net

To fit snug around the anglers waist, the over head fishing net has been designed to kill two birds with one stone. By positioning the net around the anglers waist, using it to net a fish could not be easier as it’s always to hand and easy to find, or it can be used as a line tray when deep wading.

Makeshift line tray?

Washing up bowls have been a godsend to any fly fishermen, for as long as anyone can remember fishermen were pinching their wives washing up bowls only to strap some cord around and take fishing. Who said husbands never do the washing up? Anglers wives were often spotted making ‘make shift’ washing up bowl out of their hubbies old line trays!
