More Information on Fishing Rod Leashes
Kayak fishing rod leashes are worth their weight in gold. They will keep you from losing your expensive rod and reel over the side of your kayak.
Not long ago I was looking at a page called "You Might Be a Kayak
Fisherman If..." and listed about 15 answers. Number 10 on the list was
"... if you have at least one fishing rod sitting at the bottom of the
lake, you might be a kayak fisherman." Sadly this is a true statement
for many kayak fishermen. The article's comments at the bottom spoke of
the heartache of losing a favorite rod and how they are now using rod
leashes. Don't learn the hard way, leash your rods.
The photo shows several rod and reel combos found on the bottom of the Current River by Dr. Russell Scheirling of Mountain View, MO. This represents only a fraction of the rods that sit on the bottom of lakes and rivers everywhere. Some rods and reels cost a small fortune, so protecting them is a must. (Photo taken by Russ James)
now days take multiple rods on their kayaks. Seeing someone with 4 to 6
rods is not at all uncommon. If you capsize your kayak, unless you are
part octopus, there is no possible way to save all those rods. The
easiest method is to leash them.
A Leader in Leash Innovation
kayak fishing rod leashes come with velcro that is permanently attached to the shock cord. We do
this because rod leashes are taken on and off far more often than other
leashes. Rods are often rigged with different lures for different
situations. If you need a different rod or if you get a strike while
trolling, all you need to do is rip the velcro off and toss it aside. No
worries about losing the velcro.
The 32" leash is a perfect
length for most kayaks. It is not too long to have a lot of loose cord
in the way. The marine shock cord will stretch to 60 inches or more when
extra length is needed.
The polyester shock cord has the highest
UV rating of any shock cord material. I spoke to a lady in South
Carolina who complained that UV rays ruin more of her leashes than any
other cause. Our polyester jacket solves that problem. I have had a
leash strapped to a fence post day and night for over 2 with no signs of
any UV damage at all.
In addition, we tested the shock cord by hanging a 45 lb cinder block from it. There were no breaks or problems with the cord.
