About this material: Sugar Maple

A broad-leafed tree that provides ample shade in summer, brilliant fireworks of color in fall, slow-burning heat in winter, and sweet syrup in the spring, the maple tree is a true treasure of the forest. Sugar Maple ranges in color from nearly pure white to gold, sometimes with streaks of darker reddish brown. Extremely hard and durable, this wood is recommended for younger anglers.

Why we Choose Handline Fishing

Handcrafted Gear for a Different Style of Fishing

Daggerfish Handreels are backpack fishing kits that combine a rod, reel, and tackle box into one handcrafted package.

Designed for a simple style of fishing called handlining, these ultra light fishing reels have no moving parts - simply tie on a lure, cast out by hand, and reel back in by hand. 

Easy to learn, convenient to carry, and great for backcountry excursions, Daggerfish Handreels are perfect tools for first-timer fishermen and experienced anglers alike.

A Complete Portable Fishing Kit

Hollow storage areas inside each reel include the hooks, line, sinkers and lures you need to catch a wild trout. 

Each reel weighs less than 4 oz (110 grams) and meets TSA requirements for carry-on bags, making them the perfect compact fishing kit for campers, backpackers, and travelers.

Whether you’re tossing it into your luggage, backpack, kayak or glove box, the Daggerfish can help you turn any trip into a fishing trip.

Handmade in America, Guaranteed for a Lifetime

Made from solid domestic hardwoods, natural cork, and lead-free tackle, each Daggerfish is hand-turned, sanded, finished and packed by individual craftsmen in our Pennsylvania workshop.

Every order bears a signature of approval, and all of our products are backed by our For a Lifetime Guarantee: if anything goes wrong, we'll fix it or replace it.
