    I needed some good quality fishing poles for my kids to use when we vacationed on a lake, but it had to be easy to deal with because I don't fish. The Pocket Fisherman was extremely quick for me to put together and the kids had a great time using it. They fished with these rods numerous times and we never had a problem.

    I checked out the fish reel and can see it has very high quality and strength gears and the shell of the reel itself is of very good grade and strength.

    When I was 12 in the 70's I saw this product on t.v. and dreamed of owning one, but never did. I am 53 now and wanted to get back into fishing, but did not want to buy all that expensive gear for just a few times a month, remembered my childhood dream so I bought pocket fisherman. I have only been practicing casting, and it works beautifully I like the fact you can carry it on your belt with no worry of getting caught on bushes I can walk swinging my arm too. Casting near over head tree limbs is great I cast with no problem. The reel has real nice action, it does not get jammed! I have walked down to the fishing hole with a regular fishing pole and the line would tangle around the end of the rod, and I have to untangle constantly, but not with the pocket fisherman the design is great. I am a little concerned about the rod I hope it will hold up to a nice size fish, and the handle holds a small a mount of tackle small concern!

    This little rod had stellar reviews so we picked one up as a spare to carry along with our other gear. We were disappointed. While it appears the reviews wax between "it's great" to "it was broken on arrival"...what I'm surprised by is the lack of description concerning the problem of casting a pocket fisherman. If your kids use this rod with a bobber which is generally the case, you simply cannot set the depth any more than a foot or two at the most if you want to cast any real distance. Even with adding significant weight to the line, the small size of this rod makes casting nearly impossible. When using a bobber, with the line set at any reasonable depth, the bait/hook will drag so far behind the cast attempt that the result will be all but useless. Perhaps using a plastic worm or other weighted lures that can be cast from the actual tip of this tiny rod would be more useful but with the constant reference of this being "perfect for kids"...I would strongly disagree. It simply is not designed for bobber fishing unless the line is dropped over the side of a boat.

    • A. Two screw hold the reel contents. Holding down the release spring is a pain in the butt. Reloading is easy, but you got to be dexturous to keep everything flowing. Takes just shy of 110 yards of line. While exposed, great time to grease the "guts"...hope this helps.

    I am going to attempt to teach my son to fish this summer in Montana. His is a tall 3.5 year old with great motor skills and good hand/eye coordination. Does anyone have any idea if this pole would be suitable as a first pole? If not, could you recommend an economical one that has a starter kit, so it's all ready to go? Tall order, but you Walmart shoppers are resourceful!

    • A. The Pocket Fisherman isn't good for children learning to fish. My son loves fishing and is pretty accurate when casting a traditional rod. He has a lightweight, one-piece rod about 4.5-5 ft long. I think it's a Shakespeare, with a small reel that fits his hands. The Ronco is very short, < 2 ft, so your timing on the release of the reel button has to be nearly perfect. You also have to cast with more power, due to having less "leverage". However, I could see it being used by small children when dropping the line straight into the water, off a boat or pier.

    • A. Don't attempt! Be like Nike and "Do It"! How hard is it to catch a Bluegill in a pond with a wax worm for bait? Please, DO NOT use a Ronco Pocket Fisherman for his first pole, it will Ruin the experience of what a "Reel Fisherman" feels and experiences with the bending of the rod rod and all that. I recommend a Zebco outfit that has a few hooks, maybe a bobber and a few few split shots! Snoopy-Fied! Makes it more fun, I havn't heard of RONCO since the 70's Dude, I think Wal-Mart has some Spidey Man's or Snoopy or Sponge Bob's to make it a little more interesting. Does Wal-Mart even sell Ronco anymore? Here's a tip to make sure, Mission accomplished! Take a little extra time and go to the pond BEFORE you take him there, catch a Bluegill with one of his waxworms and put a hole in the V under his jaw, tie him to a cattail so he's there for you to sneek the fish on a hook while the kids not watching, 2 poles usually helps doing this to occupy his attention with one while you set the other one, I've done the same thing to my older uncles with 40LB Catfish, so DON't tell me it can't be done! Main thing, Pack a Lunch, Enjoy the day, Take a Camera and have a Blast! Don't take a "Pocket Pal" use a REEL ROD! Good Luck, Catch a Biggin! Xtremefisherman
