We were skeptical at first. Without leading you to dirty places, let's just say that this is a small rod. But, as a great and generous woman once said, "It's not the size of the rod, it's what you do with it."

Customer reviewers of the Popeil Pocket Fisherman are extremely favorable and even accomplished fishermen say it will do in a pinch. There aren't a lot of expert anglers in the Complex offices, so it's appreciated that we have an option other than forking over way too much money at Dick's Sporting Goods. However, there is always the chance that we'll get invited to join a friend's fishing trip and there'll be no excuse to get out of it.
