TV SHOW LOOKING FOR CREATIVE FISHERMAN
Dear Fishing Community:

I'm working on a TV show for Animal Planet about fishing. We're taking a host and putting him in some unusual fishing situations to try some new and weird ways of fishing.

What are we looking for? Mainly, we're looking for anglers who've invented creative ways to catch fish or who've created unique solutions to problems they encounter while fishing.

If you know of someone or you yourself ARE someone who has created an innovative solution to a problem you've encountered while fishing, let me know. Something intrepid. Something weird but crafty. Something homemade and cheap. But most of all, something that has proven to work, even though everyone told you it wouldn't.

I know fishermen are pretty competitive and secretive with their lure designs and tricks, but this is a chance to show off and take credit. Feel free to post here, or message me directly. You can reach me at talia@part2pictures.com. Please include your name and a way I can reach you (phone/email).

Thanks!

Hi Ms. Sawyer. Welcome to BFT. Being an engineer I was faced with a very unusual task of trying to scale down fishing gear that would fit in your pocket. After a lot of time, trial & error I ended up creating the world's smallest fishing rods & reels that finally fit in your pocket. They are called Pen Fishing Rods. What is a Pen Fishing Rod you ask? It's a cleverly fabricated miniature fishing rod disguised as a Pen. It's only 7¾" fully closed or 4' 9" which is 57" in length when fully opened & we also have a larger version that opens up to 63" or 5' 3" which also comes with your choice of 7 different reels ranging from the world's smallest fly fishing reel to an equally fabulously designed variety of spinning reels both front & rear drag. There are hundreds of videos on yotube.com right now & they are quite the rage!! The World Record so far is a 21 lb fish. That's amazing! Check it out yourself, don't just take my word for it. BFT is a great community filled with like minded anglers & outdoorsmen & women from all over the world. Enjoy the video of innovation & edge of your seat fun. You can contact me through here or at our web site.

Get Tubedude in on this. It would be great to have the professional fly fisherman in a tube that looks like the Starship Enterprise and work every gadget while trying to out fish Tubedude on Utah lake. Just my opinion but I would watch itSmile.

For ice fishing the first year I tried it I didn't have many rods so I tied some line around a gatorade bottle and then wound it on. From there I would just let out some line and then set the bottle in the hole. when it bobs I would go set the hook. Worked great until the cat thought the ice fly was a toy and got caught. The gatorade bottle then chasing her around the house didn't help any either.

  Creative, I am. In fact I have a great deal of trouble thinking inside the box at all.

A fisherman worth watching on TV, maybe not so much..

But I have a fishing lure for Ice fishing that looks like a perch that just stole another perch's bloodworm, and the others try to grab it from his mouth...

I have made and used the world's simplest hook setting device.., Like a jawjacker, but simple.

My best rigs are rigs I know someone somewhere must use, but I've never heard of them.

I make an all metal swimbait that kills em (sometimes).

I do a lot of my ice fishing with wet flies, or plastics on a hook, rather than ice jigs.

Mostly it's just dumb stuff like sewing my own waders and ice tent. If any of that sounds fun, let me know. I'll PM my email and stuff.

I am an ice fisherman, we are allowed 3 rods in our state,

the problem is fish steeling our rods. Primarily Pike.

I have a solution, tho not a new concept, it is a quick easy fix and might I add a total riot out on the ice. And I always get an adiance when I am in action.Cool

Last year I fished next to an angler in the morning with this unit and I allowed him to attend it while addressed another fish on situation, he went home at lunch, came back that afternoon with one he put together in less than an hour.

Ya, I get a lot of on lookers and laughers when I set it up, especialy when they hear the gingle bells.Laugh

here is a fish I caught using this unit just two days ago

So what the solution professor? Would love to see a pic or diagram. Or is it top-secret? Patent pending?
Or maybe just a bungee cord?

Fishin'After many years of fishing I became dis-satisfied with the available fish attractants on the market. Some of them will actually cause fish to leave an area. It was like the lady in church with too much perfume on who has empty seats all around her.

So I set out to develop my own. This led to the creation of Papa Bob's Bodacious Bait Juice. We have successfully tested it on multiple species in both salt and fresh water.

Hi Paul,

In order to meet the criteria, you must sign a contract underwritten by our company, which you can get by writing to sales@penfishingrods.com However, I just looked at your fish, pretty cool but I don't see anything larger than 21 lbs. So far the record on 1 of my rods is 21 lbs. Just look up New World Record Fish with Penfishingrods.com on youtube & the whole fight is captured on film. I would post the video but the posting police took it down because I don't post 100 X a day here. Also, that bass picture of you holding a rod. The reel looks like a pen rod & so does the handle, but that rod doesn't look anything like a pen fishing rod. That rod is modified if it was a pen rod. Your guides are way too large & protruding out to close up into an 8" pen fishing rod housing. They stick out 2" past the tube's diameter. Write & I'll introduce you to the program we have world wide. These are 3 trout I nailed on my pen rod goliath. Two steelheads & a brownie.

Thanks for posting the video. I posted it last time & I was told I didn't accumulate enough posts to post a video about my company by a moderator. He removed it. Anywho, if you guys just email me with Pen Rod in the subject line I'll be happy to sponsor you after we discuss a few things. I love to push these little rods to see what they can do. There's no specific species of carp & we have 10's, 15's, 17's & an 18 lb carp out of 250 videos on youtube already. The 18lber is called BIG Carp with Penfishingrods.com but it is very short since they only had a camera phone with a dead battery. However, the guy who caught the 18 lber has over 20 videos knocking out almost 1,000 lbs of carp total. He lives in England. When you guys are ready to chit chat let me know. I';ll be waiting for an email with a number to call you. I'll discuss what sponsorship entails. :) Have a Good Day!

Also Matias his first battle with the Tambaqui,he faught it for a good 3minutes until he got bit off towards the end of the fightSly
