New Zealand-inspired Smith Creek has come up with a number of handy accessory items that will no doubt make good stocking stuffers in the holiday season, and serve the interests of the “gizmo-fascinated” angling crowd all year long.
A Hands-Free Rod Holder comes with a retractor that attaches to your vest or pack ($21.95). Time to tie on a new bug? Pull down the rod holder, clip in your rod, and work away without having your rod wash away. Simple.
The Trash Fish, is a simple anodized aluminum tool that helps you be a better steward of the resources, and not leave trails of dead tippet behind. Simply wrap the loose line, and slide it into a catch notch for storage, then cut it away at day’s end. Again… simple. Price is $12.95.
Also, the Smith Creek Net Holder ($34.95) was introduced last year, but it’s become a favorite because it clips easily to a standard wading belt, and keeps the average net secure, yet accessible.
