The Tailer helps you bring a boated fish under control quickly & safely. On a fish to be released, it is more effective than a lip gaff & it minimizes injury to fish. It is also the ideal way to control fish while you measure them for legal size & it is a big help in lifting fish as heavy as 100 lbs. into the boat. The AFTCO® Tailer is 4 ft. long with an aluminum shaft anodized in gold. 2 soft, rugged black grips are molded from the same non-slip material found on fine rods.
