This is the greatest little fishing gadget!

I've got all kinds of rods and reels in the truck including fly fishing gear. What a fun item.

I do a lot of fishing on the fly (at lunch during work - any day you can get in 10 casts is a good day). I have all kinds of collapsible rods, full size rods, and large bait casting and fly rods. This is so easy. I used the stock lures that came with the rod and store in the handle and jammed another of my favorite in there with some swivels. Didn't even change the line - just opened the box and used it.

You should have seen the look on the other competitors in the Adult Fishing Derby when I competed using this rod. Even funnier when I landed the first trout.

You won't be profiled on ESPN using this rod but the fun quotient is extremely high. Well made, convenient to carry, seems to be repairable (pops open) if needed. I always say that the best fishing rod (or gun) sitting in a case at home is worth nothing compared to something like this in the car being used at the spur of the moment.

I've fished about 10 times with it (including from a canoe) and made about 100 casts and it performs flawlessly.

Used appropriately, and with proper expectations (you won't land a tuna with this), this rod & reel combo will provide hours of enjoyment. If I break it or it gets damaged, I'll buy another one.

I resently purchased 2 of the Ronco Pocket Fisherman for me and my girlfriend from Amazon and since I recieved them in October, 2009 I have made about 10 fishing trips and have caught lots of fish of various sizes. They work perfectly and are worth every penny.

I fish on the shores of our local beaches in St. Vincent in the Caribbean and the casting is perfect since I adjust the sinker to accommodate the heavy surf.

Where I fish there are lots of Permits & Croakers and they put up a real fight, the pocket fisherman has done its job so thus far... I would most definitely recommend this product to anyone with fishing as an interest.

I am planning on purchasing another for my son, who likes the feel of the Ronco Pocket fisherman.

The biggest fish I have caught was about 1 pound.

I've been aware of this item for years and was skeptical. Actually it's very nice. I wanted it for my kayak .. Small and easy to take along. I was so pleased I bought a second one.

I bought this item after researching the subject a bit. I was looking for something to put in my survival kit/bug out bag. (Do some research on the Federal Reserve folks!) I originally was going to buy the Coleman Fishpen or something similar, but I was convinced it would break too easily, and I bought this one instead.

I'm glad I did, and I think I'm going to buy a few more of them. I haven't attempted to catch a fish with it yet but I have practiced casting with it a bit.

Cons
The device is hardly pocket sized, maybe you could manage to stuff it in the cargo pocket of your fatigues, but putting it in the back or front pocket of your jeans just isn't realistic. It fits well inside a Crown Royal Bag with a few accessories and a roll of 20lb test line.

It takes a little getting used to and if you do it wrong the line can get tangled up inside the reel.

Pros
The device is sturdy for what it is. I've intentionally punished it a bit to test it. It comes with 10lb test line, and I have purposely caught the line on an immovable object and pulled. The line will break before the device.

You can get a good cast out of it, and it reels back in smoothly.

While I listed its size as a con, it is also a plus. While not pocket sized, it can fit in your glove compartment and countless other places your regular fishing pole can't.

The Price is Right!

Bought 2 of these for when my mom and I go out on our motorcycles. It fits under the seat easily. I also found that you can cast in crowded areas(bushes trees)that a normal pole would never work in. My first catch I landed a 5lb bass on this tiny rod and reel and it handled perfectly. It isn't a top of the line product but, it works very well for what is it. Bought one for my dad as well.

Oh man I wanted to give this a 5 star but can't. The compartment that holds the reel assembly keeps coming apart. The push button lock just doesn't have enoug tension to keep the door closed. I've had to stick pieces of duct/duck/gorilla tape to keep the door from opening. Other than that this is an awesome little caster. I supplemented the included hooks with a few smaller and larger hooks. Lovely casting, very smooth. Would recommend.

I love this fishing rod. It goes everywhere and can handle light nibbles to reeling in the big ones. Never would have believed it if I hadn't used it myself, so I gotta go ahead and recommend this item!
