Easily stowed. Easily deployed. Rod in one hand and retriever in the other for a one man operation. Works great.

Just make sure you epoxy the leash latch permanently shut so it will never open and the lose the retriever.

Mine is going on 15+ years.

It wasn't my idea. Saw it A LONG TIME AGO on another fishing forum. It's light years better than using an old sawed off rod and big round reel that lots of guys use. Or winding the stupid thing by hand around a board (or pick your random cylindrical object).

It's saved hundreds if not thousands of dollars dollars by now. I've said it before but it also had made me a better angler due to the fact that I have almost no fear of throwing expensive baits into areas I know I am likely to get hung up. Plenty of spots like that in TR with all the trees, cables, etc. I have about a 90% or better success rate of getting it back with the retriever.

I'm going to order one.  Thx!  I mostly fish rivers and I agree.  I'll throw a mega bass anywhere.  And I charge my buddies to get theirs back....:D
