The Fishing Pole Holder

Originator.......Tom Jeary


THE PROBLEM:  This gentleman, who loves to fish lost the use of one arm through a stroke.

THE SOLUTION:  The tube, made of plastic water pipe is slightly larger in diameter that the fishing rod handle and is firmly attached at an angle to the arm of the folding chair. The chair has to be carefully chosen for a sturdy arm rest and reinforced if necessary as this one was. Once the fishing rod is cast with one hand the rod is placed in the tube and then "locked" in place with the plastic wedge, as shown to allow the fisherman to real in using the same hand.
