Plastic Soda Bottle Rod and Reel

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Tie, then wrap the line around the bottle and then attach hook and sinker and your good to go. Were popular a couple years back. Anybody ever see one in use ? Surprising cast distance by an experienced user.

I see that a lot when visiting underdeveloped countries. I've personally seen people reel in decent barracudas with them.

i've seen them used in the A.C. area. Some of the users can't afford a rod & reel, & they have a bucket. Speaking of their Bucket List, everything they catch they keep.

I might have seen a soda bottle used for a handline rig.

Maybe.













^^^

These are called "Yo Yo Reels"; for handlining they look like they would work pretty well.

They are also called "Cuban Reel" or "Rigged Hand Caster."

I caught a few flounder and many sunnies on a handline rig.

ran across a nice Latino guy using a "Yo-Yo" set up for Albies off BreezyPoint two years ago.  After setting him up with a fly to tie behind his lure he took a number of fish.  He was very excited and in no way could I persuade him that Albies were cat food.

thats how the poor fish where i come from. No money to buy rod and reel. My friend who grew up fishing this way would lend out hist outfit if we have extra people with us and he would fish with a bottle or can. He has caught fish. Last year he caught a 28 in bass on a sandworm, luckily the bass did not put up any kind if fight. One day I will try it.

Maybe someday I'll try a Yo Yo rig.

I bet it would be fun.

I've seen it. Very popular in countries where being bitten by a mosquito is still a death sentence.

Cut off length of broom handle gets pegged inside bottle opening for use as handle. Wrap line around bottle and sling the thing forward to cast. Hold thing sideways and wrap line around it to retrieve.

I don't think that Penn needs to get nervous just yet.
