  • Weird and wonderful angling gadgets

    You know how it goes, you go to a fishing show and there are the weird and wonderful angling gadgets that catch your eye... what's the worst of these that you have seen and did you buy one?

    One of them that springs to mind that I saw was an automatic catapult thing that attached to your bait table - god only knows how much these chaps had spend developing / patenting and marketing the thing but it never took off.

          Anyone remember the bread press from the 70s, think it was made by Lesney.
          Open square box with a screw down clamp thing.

                  They are a winder that fits like a stonfo connecter and you tie your rigs to a long line ~& wind any excess line onto winder
                  after plumbing the depth
                  There were quite a few using them around here last year
                  1 of the Daftest ideas i have seen for years
                  must be someone on here that knows what they are called ??
                  I still have 1 of them efgeeco bread presses .

                      Those silly line cutters you used to slide down your line to cut it if you ever got snagged.

                          Cast holders. My very first question on this site was about them. Every answer I got was to bin them. After I tried them, I concurred.
