|Fishing is a sport designed for relaxation. It is where fish
lovers pride themselves of the fish caught while celebrating it
with friends and family.
The rod holder is a fishing tool that allows fishermen to
multi-task easily. It was invented because fishing requires the
use of both hands in the whole process of luring, hook clearing
and removing the fish from the hooks. With all these tasks,
letting go of the pole is difficult. The fishing rod holder was
intended for anglers to be able to make use of both hands.
The first design of fishing rod holders had two parts. The first
is a pole-binding device with a strap placed on the railing to
tie up to the fishing pole. The second part is a Velcro strap
that could be tied on your limb, arms or waist.
The first designs needed improvement because when the straps
were placed on the waist, it is wedged into anything you hit.
Therefore, a new design of rod holder was invented which has
four parts - two pole clips and two straps.
Depending on what fishing position you are in, the short strap
is used to be wrapped around your wrist or forearm and the long
strap is wrapped around your ankle or leg.
There are also rod holders which come with a remedial solution
for seasickness. This curative fishing rod is capable of
providing the user with an acupressure stimulator. Providing
that the strap of the holder be worn all throughout the trip, it
would remain efficient since the pressure is exerted
The rod holder is best for fly-fishing. Fly fishing is done in
locations with rocky rivers and it is impossible to use your
other hand for any purpose other than the fishing tasks. Because
of the clips wrapped around your lower leg, you have a choice of
putting the rear of the fishing pole into the clip so that no
water could go inside it.
The upper pole clips could rotate to 360 degrees. It allows the
user to do any movement since the pole is more flexible. The
fishing rod holder could be used in any location whether in
boats, on land, or at the dock. It prevents the fishing rod to
slip from your hands and it allows you to release the rod easily.
The best fishing rod holders are those done homemade. However,
many fishing stores offer high quality rod holders that would
best suit your kind of fishing.
