Waterworks – Lamson’s breakout product in the fly fishing industry, years ago, they thought: “There’s got to be a better way to remove a delicately-tied fly from a hooked fish than the hoisting, clamping, and wrenching process now on display.” So they created a simply innovative tool capable of reducing fish mortality by eliminating netting and handling—then named it after their home-base of Ketchum, Idaho. This technique will preserve protective coatings and eliminate air exposure. The Ketchum Release tool makes low-mortality release easy, plus allows you to retrieve your fly without damage. It even keeps your hands high and dry.
Works best on freshwater flies sized from medium bodied streamers to small dries.
