The Unique Rod Retriever saves anglers the heartache and expense of losing gear overboard.
New York, NY, December 15, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Nothing can ruin a day of fishing like loosing one's favorite rod and reel in the water! Imagine a way to always be able to retrieve that rod and reel quickly and easily. The Rod Retriever can do just that. A fishing accessory, the Rod Retriever enables anglers to quickly and easily recover dropped or lost rods and reels, even when fishing in deep water. It can be incorporated into the design and production of new fishing rods and/or offered as an add-on, retrofit accessory for existing rods. Suitable for use with all sizes of hook-and-line fishing rods, the Rod Retriever is easily affordable.
The Patent Pending Rod Retriever was invented by Scott Brefeld of Round Lake, IL, who said, “When a rod equipped with the Rod Retriever is dropped into the water, water is conducted into the interior chamber of the Rod Retriever cap. The exterior surface of the cap is equipped with a time-activated, permeable membrane port designed to allow water to enter the cap only after the Rod Retriever has been immersed in water for 10 minutes.”
"It is hard to believe that the Rod Retriever is just now coming into the marketplace. The amount of gear lost by numerous fishermen over the years is indescribable and if an angler is using the Rod Retriever, no loss is every permanent."
Scott Brefeld, Inventor
The inventor added, “Once the rod has been underwater for 10 minutes, the membrane allows water to enter the Rod Retriever Cap chamber. Water fills the chamber and causes the sponge-like, expandable material to expand, the expanding cylinder forcing the Rod Retriever cap off the butt of the rod. Once the cap comes off, the blaze-orange float rises to the surface trailing the lightweight retrieval line behind it. The float on the surface guides the angler to his or her rod, which they retrieve by grasping the float and pulling in the line.”
