Provides Safer Control Of Boated Fish, and Allows For Injury-Free Tagging.
The AFTCO Tailer helps you bring a boated fish under control quickly and safely, is the ideal way to control fish while you measure them for legal size, and can be a big help in lifting fish as heavy as 100 pounds into the boat. When used on a fish that is to be released, the Tailer is more effective than a lip gaff, and it minimizes injury to the fish. Featuring a wide loop of springy stainless steel aircraft cable, the Tailer slips easily over the tail of your fish, and with a quick upward pull, closes instantly and snugly. With its tail out of the water, the fishs movements are strictly limited, so it becomes much easier to tag and release the fish, or to lift it into the boat. A swivel built into the cable allows you to better handle fish that roll and twist, which sharks frequently do.
The AFTCO Tailer is four feet long with an aluminum shaft anodized a rich gold for lasting beauty and resistance to corrosion. Two soft but rugged black grips are molded from the same non-slip material found on fine rods. The 1/4-inch aircraft cable is also highly resistant to corrosion, and the smaller cable, which actually closes around the tail, is plastic coated to protect the fish.
An $8.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.
