The Norton Fish Grip is a fish landing device is the perfect fish landing tool for fishermen in kayaks or canoes. The unique jaw design holds the lip of the fish without harming the fish and the wrist lanyard always keeps it close at hand. Another great feature of the Norton Fish Grip is that it floats when dropped into the water! For you night fishing junkies, the Norton Fish Grip also comes in a glow-in-the-dark color so that you can see what you are doing when the sun goes down. Available in Orange, Glow, Pink and a Red, White and Blue combination. The Red, White and Blue Fish Grip comes in multiple combinations of the 3 colors so no two are alike.
Looks like it will work quite well. Unfortunately, I have yet to catch a fish worthy of its use. Love the floating aspect and the high visability.
Just bought my second fish- grip for my father - will be on the Pacific in Mendocino CA for 5 days camping and kayak fishing - these things are WAY easier to deal with rockfish and other spiny dorsal/fin species - a net is required legally to have on the kayak, but it's so much safer to bring them close to the kayak and grip them with the lip-gripper to de-hook, etc. without the tangle of the net & a dangerous fish bouncing in your lap. Love that it FLOATS too - bright colors, one less item to leash to the kayak. Also great for those species that you CAN'T keep and can safely remove the hook and keep in the water without hurting/handling the fish. Can't wait!!! Lingcod, Rockfish, and maybe a... Salmon?
