Recently, my husband and I were packing for a spring break trip to Colorado with the kids and we were excited to stay at a riverside cabin. One of my husband’s favorite hobbies is fishing with the kids… but since we were flying, I saw no possible way that we could pack 3 bulky fishing poles. My husband is an avid fisherman and loves teaching the kids about nature. Plus, I love some alone time while he is out with the kids. So, I had to find a solution to this problem.


Then it hit me… the Pocket Fisherman! What an easy way to pack 3 fishing poles without taking up a ton of space. It was the perfect solution… compact, easy and reliable. They had a fantastic time fishing off the porch and even hooked some beautiful river trout. From here on out I have a great solution for traveling and fishing!

  • Compact design folds in half to fit into your pocket, luggage or store in your glove compartment.
  • Mini tackle box, hidden in the handle.
  • Reel is replaceable with reel cartridge.
  • Automatic anti-reverse prevents the handle from turning backwards.
