I have just been asked by a member if these are legal to use well the reel isnt illegal to carry or own and can be used in sALT water with no restrictions,and if you use it on fresh water just drape the line over a walking stick or withy cut from a hedge,as that legally is a rod,the only definition in law of a fishing rod is the length which must be over 3 feet in length,of course you will need a rod lisence available online for very little and have the riverbanks owners permission to fish,allthough in a survival situation the mitigating circumstance of your plight would mean no legal issues .

Ah that would have been me! Guys these things are awesome. Build quality is outstanding and the magnet set in the bottom is a genius way of keeping the spare hooks safe I've tried swinging mine hard at the ground and the hooks don't budge. I just wish I had had the chance to use it in anger to give a proper review. Good luck withstand sale buddy.

I have used one of these very hand reels during my Finland trip in 2011. Worked brilliantly and had my first taste of fresh water trout cooked over an open fire.
They cast out surprisingly well and reel in at a good rate.

I like the consept and am quite tempted to try one of the off a sea kayak, can I ask what action do you use to cast off and reel in, the pic seems to suggest the fingerstap is fixed to the reel? Is all the work done with the freehand?

to cast it just pull 2 feet off then holding by the leather tab point at where you wish to cast and then under arm cast the bait with the other hand,the line will come off the reel just like a fixed spool reel.reeling in is by hand also.
