New England Hand Lines - Typically ships within a day or two!
This new hand line is made in Kingston, Massachusetts and the design has been in use for hundreds of years along the coast of New England. I started making these as I reminisced to the days of filling a row boat full of winter flounder when I was just a boy. Oh, those were the days. Well, I now have 4 children of my own and wanted to share the simple pleasure of flounder fishing the way I did as a child. There is nothing better than feeling the tug of a fish on this simple little rig and pulling it in was so much fun. When I started looking for a hand line I could only find the antiques that sold for $75 to $90. That was just crazy!!! With that said, I started making my own and started New England Hand Lines & Tackle Co.. Each hand line model is made from 3/4" Red Oak and a new PVC model was just added. All of the wooden models will be hand sanded to a smooth finish and clear coated to seal the wood for years of use. These will make a great gift for the fisherman that has just about everything. Models available: Basic (Tic-tac-toe) traditional oak hand line is for shallow waters and smaller bottom fish. 12" X 8" traditional oak hand line for deeper waters or trolling. This one holds a lot of line if needed. "Easy to hold handle" small compact hand line has a hand grip for larger fish. PVC "Easy to hold handle" was just added for an inexpensive crab line. This one is not as pretty or finely finished as our oak model but is very functional and durable. It comes with a stainless steel clip for sticking a piece of fish, clam or chicken to it. More models will be coming soon.
Additional line depths are available. Email me any special requests.
