HOLD IT RIGHT THERE
When I first saw this hands-free rod holder, I thought, Would I actually use something like that? But this dual-hook system really is helpful in securing your rod to your vest, leaving both hands free to tie on a fly, unhook a fish, or perform countless other tasks. Inventor David Walko also points out how many physically challenged anglers buy his product. It’s definitely worth a look. $10; 866-999-3303; fishhandsfree.com.

From downunder !! I recently purchased three of your fine products, couldn't wait to fit one to my vest and use it and gave the other two to my angling buddies. They are fantastic !! I have just ordered three more. As your advertising says "They make a great gift " What the heck did we do before your product came along ?? Very satisfied and happy, thank you. Cheers for now,
Sportsmen in general and anglers specifically are always interested in the latest gadget that they just have to have. It is always interesting to see that each year someone comes up with something that is truly different or unique. In 2007 that someone is Dave Walko of Punxsutawney. The something is the “Fish Hands Free Rod Holder”. This rod holding device works well for spin, casting or fly rod as well as for young or old, experienced or novice anglers allowing his product to cross the borders of angling. The cost is also very affordable…

Congratulations on a great invention. I’m a trout fisherman who often uses minnows. In the process, my reel often drops into the water and particles get into the mechanism. Now my minnow rigging will be much simpler.
Thanks and Good Luck.

I love this rod holder because my hands are free to change flies, put on new tippets, etc..
This rod holder is one of the most innovative fishing gadgets to come along in years that is truly superb.
Since I found the “Fish Hands Free” rod holder, fishing has become much easier and fun. Now I can bait my hook or change my lure without dropping my pole or being forced to set my reel end in the dirt (or worse—mud) without a worry. I love how easy it is to put on any jacket or vest and the fact that it is so inexpensive, I can have it on both. At that price, the ease of using it is priceless. My buddies think it’s great too, so they’re going to follow suit.
No fish story.

Your rod holder is handy for the well-trained fisherman, but it is GREAT for any beginner. Plus it really makes fishing easier for the female novice.

There you are, standing in the middle of a gushing trout stream. You notice that a new tippet is needed. You tuck your fly rod under your arm to secure it while you attach a new tippet, hoping you don’t drop your fly outfit into the water. Or maybe you decide to change to a different fly. You shove your rod down into one of your wader legs to get it out of the way---cumbersome at best and very dangerous to the rod and line guides. Or perhaps you just landed a trout and plan to release it. You clamp the rod in your teeth, a practice universally frowned upon by both rod makers and dentists. Sometimes on the creek, three hands would be better than two. What we need is some gadget to solve the problem (oh how we fly anglers love gadgets!). Well, a solution has arrived! Dave Walko has come up with an ingenious rod-holding accessory that works perfectly because it is so simple! …..It's practical, durable, lightweight and it’s a fly fishing gadget that lives up to Dave’s claims and to user’s expectations. Try it. You’ll like it.
