Innovative new Fishing Hook and Leader holder Product Will Reel You In!

Posted: Updated:
An angler’s dream created for anglers by an angler. The new BananaStrings hook and leader holder saves time, money and keeps you catching.

Even the casual fisherman knows the perils of the tackle box. Especially when it comes to the hook and leader combos that get thrown into the bottom and hopelessly tangled. Even when you get them unraveled, the hooks are often rusted and you end up tossing half of them away.

Now, long-time fisherman Andrew Zagrodnik has conceived and patented a revolutionary product that will be the perfect solution. After years of searching for a suitable way to store his hooks and leaders and finding little or no help from tackle manufacturers, Zagrodnik finally decided to create his own effective solution — BananaStrings!

“It’s like they say,” said Zagrodnik, “if you can’t find one that works, invent a better mouse trap. BananaStrings fits the bill and then some.”

BananaStrings combines several innovative and cost-saving features that any angler will love. First, the product is simple to use. A hook is placed into the head and then you simply wind the leader around the body and tuck the end into the line holder. BananaStrings keeps the hook from rusting, the leader from tangling and is easy to use and re-use.

In addition to the product’s use, Zagrodnik has incorporated several key features that are sure to please even the most experienced angler. BananaStrings comes in a bright yellow that makes it easy to spot in the water should the need arise. And if you ever find that you need to locate a BananaStrings that got dropped overboard or lost in the surf, the bright yellow is easy to spot because BananaStrings floats.

The product is further enhanced by it’s resistance to the two most damaging and persistent elements in fishing — sun and salt water. The product has had extensive testing for its resistance to sunlight and has been temperature tested at extremes of 20 below zero and as high as 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

“Fishing is about having fun and relaxing,” continued Zagrodnik, “and BananaStrings relieves some of the stress of tangled tackle. I designed it for this reason and to save an angler’s time and money.”

BananaStrings is well on its way and Andrew is seeking $20,000 on Kickstarter to get the product mass-produced and onto the market. For those anglers out there who want to help him and to get their hands on a real catch before anyone else, they can visit the campaign page and help Andrew reach his goal:
