For months now a few of my fishing buddies have been telling me to get a Rod Clip from Smith Creek. To be honest, even though these won awards right from the beginning I always thought of them as a bit of a gimmick. I have been using the Smith Creek Trash Fish since they were first released, and love it - they should be compulsory for all anglers and help do Didymo Dave out of a job… but thats another story. But I was never sold on the rod clip. Until today.
The Rod clip is so simple, and does exactly what it says. Pin it on your vest or wading jacket, and when ever you need two hands, just clip your rod in. Your rod will hang securely and well balanced, leaving you free to tie on files, change your tippet, or even take selfies.
I instantly found this easy to use and a very worthwhile addition to my fishing kit, and can’t believe it took me so long to try it! These are also a fantastic gift idea, “Spawned in NZ”.
