How to Fish Lazily





Introduction: How to Fish Lazily

I'm going to show you how to use a hands free fishing device. But I'm going to be demonstrating this in my backyard (not at a body of water). This can be illegal in certain areas (check your area before you set it up).

Step 1: Materials

A mechanical Fisher
a hook
line to tie on a branch to tie it on (or a dock, jug, etc..)
and bait!

Step 2: Step 1

You need to set the length you would like the line on your mechanical fisher to be. Then tie the line intended for the tree limb into a hole on the mechanical fisherman.

Step 3: Step 2

Attach the mechanical fisher to your base (tree limb, dock post etc...)

Step 4: Step 3

Attach the hook to the end of the line and add bait!

Step 5: Finished!

Hopefully this instructable helps you catch a nice big fish to take home and eat. If you have any questions just comment but please don't be rude or sarcastic (: please vote for me in my contests that I enter in. Thanks!

    I have a dozen of those in my bug out kit, if it comes down to legal or survival I'll take survival. Great ible, they work exactly as you described.

    Thank you for your comment.

    I've had one of these for a few years now, never got to use it, mainly because I've always got my own fishing rod line in the water and in most areas you're only allowed one line. I know if I ever venture off the beaten path though it'll be going with me. Being able to set up a line and leave for some time and hopefully return to a fish waiting for you would be perfect.

    You should probably mention yoyo fishing is illegal in many places.
