Norton Brass Rattler Fish Grip

There's a new "redfish wrench" in town that is ideal for kayak fishing, the Fish Grip from the folks at Norton Brass Rattler. Made of high impact plastic, the Fish Grip has a vice-like action for clamping and controlling fish and rounded tips to keep from harming fish before a release. Don't underestimate the power of this grip - once engaged it is not coming off, and please don't test it on a finger (of course I did and had to drill a clot out of my nail).
Perhaps the most important feature is that since it is made of plastic the Fish Grip floats - no additional floats are necessary to keep it from going down once it hits the water. There are no parts to rust, it comes with a wrist bungee strap, and it's available in orange, blue, green, and glow-in-the-dark pearl.
Beyond floatability th Fish Grip has a fantastic price point at $14.95 both at local stores and online. At that price and the noted features this is an obvious winner for the kayak angler.
