    well I tripped at work last year and broke my arm:embarassed:. I now have 3 plates and 18 screws in it and the elbow is pretty much shot so setting the hook has become kind of an issue as well as learning to do everything left handed. I found these on the net but cant find anywhere to buy them. And from their web site it looks like they can be set up off of a stake or a flat surface.

    I think there are some legality issues in some states with those too. I know I saw them for sale on a website somewhere. If I find it again I will pm the site to you. I am not sure if they are legal or not in kansas.

    hey from what i see it looks like a possible great idea for fishermen...and before everyone looks and is like yeah the cheating fisherman....im more thinking on the lines for the people who love to fish but just cant due to some handicap. like his tore up elbow....makes setting the hook real hard and probably loses lots of fish that way. and for like real young kids who arent strong enough or some of our elderly who also just no longer have the energy to get a hard hook set. i think its a great idea for those who want to enjoy the sport of catfishing but just physically cant. like right now i have a tore up shoulder from a tractor trailer accident and setting the hook has been a problem for me. i would love to have a set of those right now.........

    Or you could just put some circles on the end of your line.
