What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Fish Anytime Anywhere All Essential Tools in your Wallet

Imagine standing creek-side the early morning light just breaking the horizon. The sun not yet high enough to break the chill but just high enough to bring the native fish to the surface of the water.

 As this feeding frenzy begins you are overcome with a deep almost instinctive urge to toss a hook and line into the water.

Only one problem all of your prized fishing gear is stowed safely in your garage back home. It was not your intent to fish today this was supposed to be a family trip a wedding, anniversary, birthday... (insert some other useless gathering). 

Yet here you are facing this majestic scene with no rod or reel in sight, or are you? With one smooth motion you reach into your pocket and call upon Glaucus protector and guide to all fisherman. 

With these basic tools and ancient knowledge, you are able to cast your line into a small pool where it is eagerly awaited and received by the local species of fish. 

The strike hits, line pulls tight and the rest is history.

Glaucus dismantles all the complex expensive fishing gear currently available and provides a simple, efficient system in the lightest most compact platform possible.  

Hand Line Casting Handle - Starting at the outer edge of the card you will notice the uniquely contoured lines which make up the hand line casting handle. This design gives you an almost hypnotic power over the water allowing you to accurately place casts in even the most technical fishing situations.  

6 Assorted Size Bait Holder Hooks with Break-Away-Point Safety Tabs - Once these tabs are removed you are left with a serrated edge leading up to the sharpest point possible. Truly the first effective flat hook design ever created.  

1 Spoon & 1 Fold-able SD Lure - For situations where live bait is not desired or possible we have included 2 of the best cold water lure designs. The classic spoon and the fold-able SD. Each of which are capable of being kept in action with the casting handle.  

D-Ring - Although humble in appearance the small D-Ring located in the bottom left corner. Enables you to add weight to your line which directly translates to your casting distance. It can be tethered to a stone or fastened to a dry branch to act as a float.  

15 lb Mono-filament - Each system also includes enough mono-filament to have you hooking up in seconds. You can upgrade this to your favorite line type and weight.  

At just under half an ounce this ancient tool stows easily in your backpack, vehicle, wallet or purse. Enabling you to seize every fishing opportunity available for fun or survival.

Made in the USA from the highest grade materials

Risks and challenges

I do not anticicpate any issues with delivery. Backers will be updated with any developments as they happen.

Extensive effort was put into this project. From research and development to revision after revision of functional prototypes to all of the hours/day of testing. All of this work with one simple goal in mind create a survival card that actually works. Get rid of all the “gimmicky” features bottle openers…etc. and create something effective, something that gets the right things done.
I believe we have achieved this goal and I eagerly anticipating fulfilling orders for all you amazing backers.
Thanks,
Brian
