It was amusing to read some of its other uses, too, such as: it can be used as a clothesline, duck decoy retriever, small animal snare, and so on. This may be a good addition to your camping supplies, bait/tackle boxes, survival kits and whatnot. Plus, it might be a great gift idea if you have a lot of hard-to-shop-for redneck friends; ha! Oh, one of the reviews mentioned that you may need to bring some extra rope, if you have to secure this item around a limb or tree. Anyway, I thought I'd share this cool product today; cheers!
Update (1-20-2018): After nearly 3 years had passed since I wrote this Yo-Yo Automatic Fishing Reel post, I finally purchased it. I must say, the price has come way down since then! I bought 6 Mechanical Fisher's Yo Yo Fishing Reels - Package of 1/2 Dozen - Yo-Yo Fish Trap (FLAT TRIGGER MODEL) for the current price of $15.52 plus tax on Amazon (link included below)! They would be great for fishing while occupied, etc. Plus, I thought it would go great with my survival/outdoor supplies, as well.
The updated product description is as follows: Very Sensitive Flat Trigger Mechanism
At any rate, this sounds like a cheap investment for outdoor supplies, to say the least...
