Catch-A-Lure – because it’s the right thing to do!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been a little suspicious of little plastic gizmos that look like they came from a late night venture on some home shopping network. Maybe it’s the legacy of too much TV time spent with commercials for the Veg-A-Matic and the Pocket Fisherman. But sometimes you run on to a very simple idea that you wish you had invented yourself. Here’s one. It’s not expensive, and it’ll pay for itself in no time through reclaimed flies – yours or someone else’s.

It’s called Catch-A-Lure, and it was invented by a lifelong angler from eastern Pennsylvania. He noticed wherever he fished, there were always flies festooned in the trees and brush along the streams and rivers. They were more than just an eyesore – they actually took away from the fishing experience. Not to mention the fact that they represented no small investment in terminal tackle, perched there in the branches like the ghosts of anglers past. Naturally, this same angler left his fair share of marooned flies in the brush, just out of arm’s reach but touchable with the tip of his rod.

He tried various techniques for retrieving these flies, without much success. He searched the fly shops, he searched the internet, looking for a simple device that would enable him to use his rod as an extension of his arm to dislodge these flies. Nothing . So he took matters into his own hands – he invented Catch-A-Lure.

It’s made of tough high-grade polymer plastic, and it clips to the end of your rod tip. Heavy-duty magnets capture and hold the hook, and the small cutter neatly clips the monofilament. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket or on your sling pack. It sells for less than $20 – that means that if you save just a few flies from dangling in the wind, you will have paid for it. And more importantly, you will have made a sizable dent in the streamside micro-trash.

Thanks for posting about this gadget. I bought one, can't wait to use it to clean up my favorite fishing spot. I hate to see all the flys and lures in the trees just waiting for a bird to get stuck on either the hook or tangled in the mono.

Much appreciated!
