best lure retrevial devices
« on: June 26, 2012, 03:35:10 PM »
With it raining i thought it would be a good time to share some ideas/tools that have saved me and everybody else some cash and lures.

I have 2 devices.

1 being a snahu lure retrevial- amazing i have very high rate of getting lures back

2 being a golf ball retrever with a pig tail metal componet(bought at charlton's fishing) attached to it. all up it cost $25. its extend to 3m perfect for grabbing the rare lure that finds it way 1m up the bank or halfway up a tree. 

Would love to know of other people's lure retrevial devices or invention

cheers Brad.

I use a Tackleback.  It's tied on to 120lb braid.  It's kept on an old Team Daiwa reel mounted on a broken Loomis rod.  It lives in the rod locker.  I just bought a Fabril extending retriever which goes out to 15 feet.

Best lure retrieval device?
Definitely a reel. Brings them back almost every time ;)

sorry couldn't resist  ;D

Cant remember what my bit of gear for retrieving snagged lures is called, its a lump of pipe with a couple of small chains hanging off it. Bought it off one of the murray cod related forums. Does the job really well.

Tackleback for me on a hand spool with sash cord. For tree mounted lures you can't beat a lopper, they should sell them in tackle stores not just hardware. A little pruning along the river never goes astray,

Tackleback on a handcaster with vb cord that I have had for as long as I can remember.Also an extendable lure prodder with a pigs dick on the end.
Both have served me well and although the tackleback isnt perfect it has saved me a few dollars.I have looked at the large ones with the chains and thought they would work pretty well and if I trolled more deep divers around its probably the one I would look at first.

This is my home made retreiver consisting of fibreglass tent poles epoxied together with a stainless steel curly wire end to snaffle the lure/fly. Cost about ten bucks with materials bought at the dump. I fasten it to the side of the yak by coiling the wire through a ring up at the bow and then bending it around the cockpit holding it in place with a triangle of bungy cord behind the cockpit.

Mine is home made also.  10mm OD aluminum tube, from most large al suppliers, comes in 6 Metre lengths.

Cut to 1 Metre lengths, threaded for about 30mm, araldite a 60mm piece of threaded steel rod ( of the same thread ) into one end leaving the other threaded for joining one to the other.  A Curley spring on the end like Pats

Rarely have I had to use the 6 pieces, usually 3 or 4.  Can use it into trees also but it is fairly unstable after 4 M.

The flexible tent poles could be another way to do the same with a few alterations.
