Childhood dream!

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!

Ronco Pocket Fisherman

I bought two of these one for myself the other for my daughter. This pocket fisherman is great for fishing. We have went fishing twice. I just caught a fish using this. This is great for the beginner or the expert. It has a cord in which you can put around your wrist so you don't lose your pole. It folds up when you are done. The handle has a little compartment for your hooks. It comes with some extras which are great. I have to say I just learned how to cast again after years of not fishing and this made it easy to learn. The first time I went fishing I went through 5 bobbers. This last time didn't lose one bobber at all on the rocks and cast beautifully. I love that it is so compact. Other's were using big poles and I was using my Pocket Fisherman and I am the only one that caught any fish. I will say though you do need to have a tackle box with extra bobbers and weights and line if you are a beginner. Also scissors and two gloves or mitts. As well a pair of plyers if you fish and put back the small fish. This is the best fishing rod. It is of great value. The cost is great.

Still the same

The Ronco Pocket Fisherman is still the same after these many years. This unit stills offers the dedicated fisherman the opportunity to go fishing anytime and anywhere. It's compact size allows it to be stored in any vehicle or backpack, ready at a moments notice. It's not a 6'6" ugly stick with a yamano reel and won't perform like one, but then you can put those in a suitcase. Do I really like it? I bought several....

Handy, Quality made, Great Value, Dual Tips

Caught a 24 inch Pike and both reel and pole worked just great. Wondered how it would handle a big fish. Dual Tips make a big difference. Keep it in my trunk. Always have a pole with me when a lake pops up along the road. Only pole thats easy to cast around tree's. Fish where you couldn't before.

1. yes the same as a regular reel.
by Teresa35023
2. Yes. Very easy
by Kingtwo
3. Yes, the line can be changed. I haven't changed mine yet, but it looks easy on the directions. See Ronco.com for more details
by barnyardbabies
4. It's real easy to change the line. The "Pocket Fisherman" also comes with a very well put together "Owner's Manual". Changing the line is fully explained and is accompanied by useful illustrations of the entire process.
by Socalalan
5. Yes, the line can be changed according to the manual. Haven't tried yet.
by BigBirdW
6. Changing the line is easy and I already changed mine to a 20# test when I got it.
by golffish
7. 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.
by PocketFisherman
8. The line can be changed, not sure how easy it is, but in the manual it looks fairly easy
by RPR1918
9. Yes. it is in the instructions on how to change line
by TonyinDallas
10. line change is similar to regular reel. there are instructions included
