Bank,Boat, and ice fishermen will love this new hook setting pole-rod holder! Welded steel with a screw on threaded rod for easy set up in all types of terrain. Simply cast out the fishing line and then insert the fishing pole into the rod holder portion (tube) and wrap the fishing line around the half-loop trigger wire while taking up slack in the line. When the fish bites the hook and pulls the line, the trigger wire is pulled and the tube(rodholder portion) moves upward setting the hook. Inside diameter is one and a half inches for most fishing poles/rods. Be one of the first to own this incredible fishing aid. The photos show the waiting to be triggered state. Two piece assembly, the rebar screws off. The welded steel construction will last a lifetime. Complete 2 piece breakdown will allow you to store it in a small tackle box. The color is gloss red; a high temp paint for durability. Email me with any questions or if you would like one. The price is $27.99 and includes shipping in the continental U.S.. Foreign orders required additional shipping fees to apply.
