that's not a gadget Sandy but a necessary tool imo (or an equivalent sewing machine needle). his rod/reel holder on the other hand...  :z7  :X2  :X1

sorry Sandy, that didn't really answer your question...  :z4

here's a little gizmo i have a hard time being without.


more about it here http://thelimpcobra.com/2014/02/13/review-smith-creek-rod-clip/

i've since removed the retractor and simply attach it with a looped bit of parachute cord to my chest pack strap.
cheers,

I have just got round to watching the video and I have to say that that is one of the worst fly fishing accessories that I have ever seen.
Oh dear his arm gets tired French nymphing. Man up ya big girls blouson.
Marc, the rubber band fly drier is ace and I am now on the look out for the correct rubber band.  :z16

I have a Leatherman Style, its the smallest one with a good blade, scissors, nailfile screw driver and tweezers, its small and goes on a zinger,another thing I have whether its a gadget or what , it's a Varga charcoal stove folds flat made of titanium, weighs a couple of ounces, hoping to use it this season as an alternative to paying 4 for a 100gm gas cartridge , :shock  easgach 1

Yes they are BUT they are the dogs danglies. I drew the line at the printed ones but the plain ones are worth every penny. You see they make a lovely little"click " when you use them and it is just soooo sexy......
Oh fer fecks sake, I am such a loser........ :z4
The rod holder is ace but the zinger sucks. Do what Marc and I did and tie it on with cord or a split ring.
Leatherman Squirt is also a good fishing gadget.

I am hoping this wee gadget will lift catches this year :)



Have to say I have gone the other way with my fly fishing, I don't have gadgets as such, just a box of flies, a spool or two of tippet and a pair of scissors.
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....
