A tip-up style fishing rig system featuring a spring-loaded flag that only activates upon fishing line extension to eliminate false alarms.
Inventor Dale Trojan of Rock City Falls, NY has created a tip-up style fishing rig system featuring a spring-loaded flag that only activates upon fishing line extension to eliminate false alarms.
Fishing tip-up rigs allow fishermen the ability to fish from many different fishing holes at one time. The tip-up provides for a reel system that properly places the hook at a location where fish will strike it and holds it there for hours while the fisherman attends to other tasks. When a fish strikes the hook, a spring system releases a pop-up flag to indicate the strike. The fisherman can then attend to the rig and simply pull the fish out of the water. However, while seemingly simple in design, the conventional tip-up system has many disadvantages. The fishing line can tangle, snag, break, or otherwise malfunction allowing the fish to get away. It is also a common occurrence to have the tip of the flag activated by windy conditions and not by a fish hitting the line. Also, when the flag is flipped up, the fisherman knows little about the rate of line deployment, or whether the line is even still moving. In fact, many fishermen leave the bail closed on the fishing reel to help reduce false alarms. However, this leads to other problems such as broken lines and lost rods. As an avid ice fisherman, Dale just knew there had to be another way. In turn, he was inspired to develop the Ice Fishing Framus!
The invention is a tip-up style fishing rig system that features a spring-loaded flag that only activates upon fishing line extension. Fishermen will be able to leave the bail open on the reel, allowing a fish to run freely, while still getting notified of a bite. A small storage compartment will hold extra hooks and sinkers. The invention can easily be used on all types of fish and will allow fishermen to walk away and work on other lines.
