Flexible Finger Tape
Tape is a surgical grade product, designed to accomplish many things.
It's stretchable, non-absorbent,
self-sticking and long lasting. It will not absorb water and it retains
stretch and adhesion under harsh conditions. We use this tape here at
our shops as a cushion on the reel's spool when loading Spectra. It
provides the line something to dig into, so it's less likely to rotate
on the spool. It's also been used by fishermen for years (though
typically in inferior form) trying to prevent or minimize Spectra cuts
and burns on their thumbs and index fingers while fishing. From our
experience, this is the best product of its type. There are two other
similar products on the market, one from our friends at Izorline,
another from Strikemaster. No knocks against these guys, but our tape is
a heck of a lot better. Ours is thicker, and it has better adhesion.
We've been using and selling this stuff at our shop for years, never
made it available on-line. Well, based upon feedback from folks who have
used it, we're now selling the product. We package the tape, two per
pack. You get one 1 inch by 5 yard AND on two inch by five yard rolls.
Our two pack sells for $4.99. Izorline's single pack goes for $3.50 and
that's for one one inch wide x 5' roll. (Compare 1"x5 yd, verses our
deal 3"x5 yd - three times the Flex Wrap for an extra buck and a half)
The Strikemaster version sells for about $2, and is so much inferior
that it does not warrant discussion. Our Flexible Finger Tape is Made in
America, too - a superior quality product and value. Just like our lures, by cutting out
the middleman, we are able to pass along a significant savings to you.
IZORLINE ACCESSORIES: Straps, and Such
keeps coming out with useful products. They make strap and harness
systems that are obviously designed by fellow fishermen. Their
tools are some of the most practicle on the market for our
application. And, their gloves are one of the niftiest items I've
seen in a long time. The three straps listed below serve some
essential purposes. To help you keep your rods together, safe, and
easy for transport to and from the boat, the Rod Sling holds your
rods, securely attached with Velcro straps, with a sling to use
over your shoulder while carrying. Next, Izorline's Rail Strap
attaches to your reel, and helps keep your valuable rod from
taking a dip. This is an essential item to use on all trolling
rods, especially if you are working the water alone. The last item
offered is another dandy tool, Izorline's Reel Shoulder Strap.
This item clips on your reel, allowing security and aided
fishfighting. You can still work your rod, cast, and have extra
pull when fighting a big fish. It's also a good security tool,
while lazily working a bait, never being sure when the big dawg
will come up and take you for a turn around the boat.
System (sling several rods over your shoulder, great for
transporting gear to the boat)
@ $12.99 - This is a
must-have item if you ride the party boats, or carry several rods
and reels to and from your boat. It's a winner, the best of it's
Rail Strap (reel security at the rail) @ $12.99
Rod & Reel Sling - (shoulder harness fighting strap
system) @ $19.99
a strange new product that just might find a home with some of our
clients. Slicing through a finger, or getting spectra burn while
leveling line on a conventional reel is not uncommon. Some guys use
Izor's Flex Wrap, some use a glove, some take their chances... But, for
I think this little device might be something well worth considering.
It's a one-finger-glove, just covering up to the first joint with a
small leather cap. The product is MADE in the USA, designed by
fishermen, works on either the left or right hand, and available in
three sizes. The large size will work for most of us, the small for
women and kids, the extra large for guys with major league mitts.
fish is slippery work, Izor helps out by providing
two excellent working gloves that will surely
please. The rubber gripper gloves in the
bottom of the picture are something you'll
absolutely want to have with you when you return
from a long range trip. When you're separating
your catch, putting them on your "number" you'll
be glad you planned ahead by purchasing a pair of
these high utility gloves. @ $6.99 / pair
glove in the picture is a "gripping glove."
You'll use it on your boat frequently, for tailing
a fish, organizing your catch, grabbing a gaff.
When ever your grip is failing, you'll find these
a handy companion. @ $4.99/pair
AFTCO has a nice line of fighting and wire
gloves that are also well worth owning. There are several in their line,
geared for specific application. AFTCO boasts these are the finest
gloves made for fishing, and they're correct in that assessment. They
are made from the right materials, and they are well made to provide
years of service. The gloves are designed with specific uses in mind,
from general purpose hand protection to heavy duty wire work.
the maker of Rapala lures, produces a number of fillet knives and
accessories. While most of their knives are freshwater size,
they do have one product that's essential to most fishermen.
They make a glove that will help you keep your fingers out of the
gumbo - literally. The highly flexible glove is made from a
stainless steel fabric material that's quite good at preventing cuts
and slices. You can still chop through them with a serrated
blade, or poke through them. But, you'll prevent most all of the
slices you might get from a sharp fillet knife. You'll also get
a better grip on the fish. The gloves are machine washable, so
you can keep 'em clean. I like these a lot, use them whenever
I'm cleaning fish.
Izorlines Flexx Rap and Rod Straps|
folks at Izorline sure know what fishermen need....
Izorlines finger protection wrap, is a very useful product.
Like their gloves, these help protect an angler from the common cuts
associated with lipping a bass, leveling line, line cuts and blisters.
The material improves your grip, is waterproof and hypoallergenic.
Each roll is 1" wide and 5 yards long, enough to last a good long time.
Izorline's Handy Straps are
another useful accessory, no angler should be without. These
convenient velcro grip straps bundle and hold four rods with ease.
They were initially developed by Jim Lawerree while attending college
and working as a deckhand for Russ Izor. He was also a devoted
fisherman and private boater. Years back, Jim lost a toe via
amputation while attending college. He had a heck of a time
lugging books around, let alone his favorite rods. This was the
motivation behind the Handy Straps Izorline has been selling for years.
Russ helped give Jim his start as a deck hand, and helped him get
started with these straps as a hobby/business while he was employed with
Hughes Aircraft in Southern Cal. Jim passed away some years ago,
and is deeply missed by Russ and the folks at Izorline. But, the
product he developed is still available, and still helping guys pack-up
and go fishing. That's not a bad legacy.
Cold Tuna Rod Tote
(aka The Sepoleator)
an interesting variation on an old theme. Lugging your rods
and reels down to the boat is a pain in the keester. Devices
to make this drudgery easier are indeed essentials in my book.
While walking through the ICAST show last month Beth (the gal that
makes things work at the shop) noticed these things and directed
me to "bring 'em in." I usually do what she tells me.
The unique thing about this product is
it's use of two foam inserts. With the inserts there's no
banging around and scratching of your precious rods. Like my
other favorite device of this type, the Izorline rod tote, it
secures the rods at three points. You can carry them, or put
the strap across your shoulder for hands free operation.
They're a very good wrinkle on an essential theme.
big salt water isn't like puttering around in a lake. It gets a lot
deeper, rougher, and holds bigger fish, too. You have to make your
offering available to the bitters, where ever they might be. That
often means you need to work more of the water column for a bite.
Downriggers can help you cover more of the water column and that can
be a critical difference in achieving fishing success. I've got a
downrigger and use the product when I'm targeting certain fish, like
halibut or sometimes while sharking. I like using it a lot, but it can
be a hassle to deploy, especially from a small boat. Often, I'll leave
it home to save the space, only to wish later I'd had a way to get to
the deeper fish. Well, here's an alternative which allows you to
easily cover a lot more water and you'll have no excuse not to keep
one of the rigs on the boat. The compact planer pack is one of more
useful items you can buy!
To deploy, all you do is attach the poly line to a cleat, attach your
line to the planner and let out both lines. Boom, you're done, that is
until a fish hooks up. I'm most excited about using this product with
a shallow or deep diving
Instead of covering the top ten feet with a lure, you can be working
60 feet or better.
Planner Package includes planner, leader wheel, poly line, mono
line, snap/swivels, rubber bands, all packed in a marine-safe bag to
help keep things organized for quick deployment.
a really simple and effective accessory
most anglers can use. The LineOff is made
for removing and ultimately recycling your
used fishing line. It has been endorsed by
several environmental groups, such as
Ocean Watch, Ocean Conservancy, Florida
Fish and Wildlife. Field and Stream
Magazine gave 'em a "Hero's of
Conservation Award" in march '07.
It's a simple device, clamps onto most any
household drill. It's a patented design,
so really while there may be some similar
contraptions, none are as easy or
effective to use. You can follow this link
to see a demonstration, but really it's a
no brainer to operate. Loosen a wingnut
and insert your line, put it on your drill
and give it a spin. Your line is removed
in record time. Now, remove a wingnut and
the thing comes apart, making disposing
and recycling your line simple.
NOTE< the one's offered for sale are white
in color not orange.
