Bananastrings Instructions

I just wanted to make sure that these instruction are posted for all to review.

Use and instructions are posted on on the product news page, if you have any questions or concerns please contact us anytime.

The construction and functionality was key in the design.

Below are the techniques I have developed for the product.

Hope this helps. It took me a while to figure out these techniques but have been working for me for the last 3 years so they have been battle tested.

The holder works best with 20 lb test and up line.

Place the hook on the top(angled holder side) the hook should face opposite the logo.

Pull the leader inline with the appropriate line space.

Press the leader to the yellow base and firmly pull the leader through the rubber line holder from top to bottom and to finish press the line to the yellow base.

Use this technique for each rubber line holding section.

If you are using a line lighter than 20 lbs test.

Guide the line through the appropriate line space (the line does not grip as the heavier lines do).

To finish setting the leader place the end loop Knot into the Rubber line holder.

Retie loop if necessary so the Knot lines up in the middle of a rubber line holder unit.

Please take a moment to let me know how you heard of the product.

Thank you,

Andy Z...

          Well I didn't get out fishing as much as I would have liked to this summer.

Do to my buddies boat engine crapping out several times this season (we may have to consider re-powering) the increased duties at my day job and weekend traveling with my wife, I have not spent enough time promoting the product.

Well the end of the summer fishing hails way to the ultimate fall/winter striper season. I will have to spend more time visiting the bait and tackle shops along the coast promoting the product and therefore must stop and wet a line.

I will reviewing some new products that have been sitting on my drawing board for a while now and should have at least 2 new products by the end of 2016.

I have also been working with creating ball jigs the last 2 years with extra long hooks and find these provide a better hook set with large and small mouth bass.

If you are interested in these type of jigs they will be available online at in February 2016. Drop me a line if your interested on the contact us page.

Well enough for now.

I hope you find the Hook & Leader Holder as useful as designed to keep your terminal tackle, in-line and tangle free.

No Water

The wife and I had reserved a boat for Memorial Day for her to tan and me to catch some flounder on opening day weekend. As I approached the marina office from the parking lot the young attendant approached me and says" i don't think we can let you go out, theres no water" thinking it was a joke line I continue past him to the office as I turn the corner this is what I see.

As the kid said "No Water" I could not believe how low the tide was, this is a salt water marina in the south bay in New Jersey.
As the marina owner stated to me "in his 13 years he has Never seen the water this low".

Well maybe next weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and please Facebook, Tweet, Pintrest, Instagram and of course tell your friends about our product.

Thank You,
