    Packer fishing pole

    Posted by Chris on 13th Jan 2019

    I operate tow trucks here in Georgia, and I keep a zebco 33 on my packer and in a spider wire jump bag, it’s small enough to keep behind the seat in the truck, in between calls I hit the rivers and creeks around home and I love the way my rod has survived the abuse I throw at it, had many a bass on it, many bream and no matter weather I throw it behind the seat or in the tool box under the bed it’s always ready for it, all in all I give it 10 stars out of 5

    Haven’t fished with it yet, but...

    Posted by Sean on 28th Feb 2018

    Feels very well made and I did play around with it and I was surprised at how accurately I could place a weight when casting. The shorter rod length almost made it feel more like I was throwing a ball than casting from the end of a long pole. I got this rod for bike packing and I really like how light it is and how small it packs down. I’m going to take it to Ireland this summer and I’ll be backpacking around a bunch of mountain lakes. It’s nice to know that I can take a chance at fresh fish for dinner over a camp fire!!

    Best Travel Rod!!

    Posted by Margaret Woodbery on 30th Jun 2017

    My son went to Northern Tier and took this pole and said it functioned flawlessly. He caught 15 fish and said the pole was the perfect size and strength for canoe fishing at Northern Tier. It was easy to pack, reassemble and store while on the trek. Thank you!
