I was recently watching tv and came across a commercial for the Instant Fisherman. I usually don’t even pay attention to stuff like this but was morbidly curious about it. They run a buy one, get one free promotion so I figured I’d give it a try. When compacted, the Instant Fisherman is about a foot long and doesn’t take up too much room when you’re ready to go fishing. To use it, you flip open the handle, extend the eyelets and you’re ready to go. It’s a really easy design and actually holds up much better than I expected something so simple to. It’s not a professional pole by any means, so if you’re a serious fisherman, you won’t like it at all. If you’re just a casual fisherman or just wanna get out of the house with the kids one sunny morning, this might be worth your while. It comes with a 30 day guarantee, so if you have any issues, you can just return it with no questions asked. I let my daughter use one while we were out and she had no difficulty working it at all. She caught a few sunnies so she had a prize to bring back home to mom and everything. The price is pretty good, but the twelve dollars shipping and handling kinda caught me off guard. Still, it’s a nice set of poles for the casual fisherman, so if you don’t need top of the line fishing gear and don’t mind shelling out a few bucks for shipping, I’d recommend the Instant Fisherman.
