The Fishing Buckle Vs. The Classic Fighting Belt

Just to be clear, I’m not touting The Fishing Buckle as a superior product to the classic fighting belt that many of you may own.  It's a great alternative for those who don’t have one or even those who do, but don’t want to wear it all day. Avid anglers will most definitely still use their fighting belts for big game catches, but The Fishing Buckle is fully capable as well as a great fill in for all the gaps. It could be as simple as just reeling in to check your bait - as it’s the same process as catching a fish, just without the excitement and fight or to free up a hand while letting your lines out. Also, you may have 1 fighting belt on board, but 3 lines with fish on - everyone could be wearing The Fishing Buckle. It also makes a fantastic, customizable gift for the angler that has it all..  To date, testing of The Fishing Buckle has over 30 successful catches from a 36 pound mahi mahi to a 60+ pound sailfish and of course hundreds of pounds of weed lines, a 2x6 board, some old netting and a lot of half eaten bait!!  

 Dimensions:

You'll be able to choose buckle finishes, belt sizes and colors at the end of the campaign.  

 Actually...  

About 2 years ago, I was on a fishing trip down in Key West with my dad! After a few hours of reeling in to check the bait and a few good catches, I realized I was getting bruised from sticking the fishing rod into my stomach. Typically, most people stick the rod under their arms, into their stomachs or thighs to support it… none of which are ideal. We had a fighting belt on board, which is the larger support belt that you velcro around your waist when you’ve got a fish on. Even though it worked great, I found that it was too bulky and uncomfortable to wear all day. When a fish struck the line, I had to rush to strap it on before grabbing the fishing rod, or grab the rod and have someone else help strap it on. I wanted something that was smaller, wearable all day, always ready for action and would still provide great fishing rod support…so I created THE FISHING BUCKLE.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing is all lined up and ready to go, and my estimated delivery date should be accurate (if not sooner). That being said, there are many variables at work in creating a new product and getting it into your hands such as manufacturing and shipping times, design changes, etc... When successfully funded, I will immediately place my order and keep you updated on all aspects of the project. Thanks..
