Named a "Top New Product" in Field&Stream. CatchALure is a tool designed to conveniently attach & detach from your rod giving you a reach advantage of almost 17 feet (height of fishermen + arm reach + length of fishing rod) lancing the line while holding the fly or lure magnetically until you "Get It Back"
Don't want to use your rod? No problem. Telescopic CatchALure in either Fly or Conventional has a built-in retractable extender, is made of stainless steel so it wont rust, comfortable no-slip foam handle with lariat attachment.

CatchALure Fly Retriever will retreive: Nymphs, Streamers, Dry's, Small spinners up to size 1.
Specifically for Fly Fishing. Compact, Lightweight 4oz. Hi visibility neon-green. Two powerful neodymium magnets to attract the fly's metal hook magnetically. Once the fly or streamer is magnetically attracted/secured against the sidebar of the tool, position the line into the V-Cutter. Pull slightly, and a very sharp (but concealed) steel blade lances the tippet, immediately cutting the fly free from its snag. Now the fly is held securely to the CatchALure Fly Retrievers side until you pick the fly off by hand.

Dont just take our word for it. See these reviews from other folks you trust.
A year ago I bought a Flyfishing CatchALure, I was skeptical, but (as you already know) it works great! It has for sure paid for itself in tungsten flies and indicators. There have been times when I look up in the tree and say "no way is it going to work this time" and it does-truly a great invention, outstanding work-congratulations!
Also, the fact that it sinks and is highly ...visible are genius, I HAVE dropped it in the water at least 3 times, and recovered it.
I do get nervous attaching it to flimsy high dollar fly rods, but so far so good. I just ordered a Telescopic Conventional CatchALure for my kayak fishing and bigger lures.
You know, watching my gear come back on the CatchALure, or fall out of the tree with a plop, is as good as catching a nice fish. It makes me smile every time.

I got the CatchALure Fly Retriever as my yearly gag gift to my brother for Christmas. It was soo worth the money when he admitted it he uses it all the time!
Its not about getting a fly back, as much as, getting back THE only fly that's working that day. Now I'm going to buy a Conventional for my lures. A must add to your fishing tackle arsenal!
