Get a Grip! Fishgrip that is
By Chris Funk
There are two things that will ruin a successful trip quickly if an angler isn’t careful: teeth and hooks. It only takes one encounter with either one of those dangers to make you fully aware of their devastating potential. There are a couple of options on the market to help secure fish while protecting the hands but my pick is the http://www.thefishgrip.net/” target=”_blank”>Fishgrip.
Weighing less than a bag of soft plastics, these locking-jaw plastic fish grippers have saved me from hooks and toothy critters wherever I travel to fish. The Fishgrip fits well in seat pockets or is just as easy to clamp to a bungee to keep it handy.
You can deploy the Fishgrip one handed and they float if they are dropped overboard. The grips are a great way to secure a fish in a catch-photo-release format tourney while the angler is getting their camera and token ready.
The Fishgrip weighs exactly .5 pounds and comes with a hole in the handle that makes it easy to attach a scale and get an accurate weight without poking a hole in the fish’s jaw or pinching down with metal.
If you are looking for a great stocking stuffer for an angler in your crew, give the Fishgrip a try. They may be able to shake your hand with all 5 fingers because of your gernerosity!
