New Rod Holder Lets Anglers Work With Two Hands

Anglers who try to balance their rod while baiting hooks or unhooking fish know it can be hard to do two things at once.  The new Troll & Stow rod holder from MIG gives fishermen the freedom to use both hands without rods’ slipping overboard.

 Developed by a fisherman for fellow fishermen, the Troll & Stow secures rods and holds them steady.  Baiting hooks, changing baits, removing fish and tying rigging can all be accomplished using both hands when rods are placed in the Troll & Stow.

   The rod holder also prevents rods from rolling around on deck so there’s no danger of stepping on them.  Two different positions allow users to troll and drift without worrying about tangled lines. 

Using the Troll & Stow is easy, too. Users just slip their rods into the holder, which makes removal a snap as well.

 The Troll & Stow is produced by Manufacturers Industrial Group, a leader in parts-assembly manufacturing.  Constructed of aluminum with a plastisol coating, the Troll & Stow can accommodate all spinning and bait casting rod sizes up to 1.5 inches.  Mounting screws are included.

 Retail price for the Troll & Stow is $23.95.
