A good rod belt greatly helps anglers fight strong fish. A
beltlike device with a receptacle for holding the butt of a fishing rod and used for
playing large fish while protecting the angler's lower abdomen, kidney, and groin. The
primary purpose of a rod belt, which may also be called a fishing belt or a fighting belt,
is to relieve the pressure that an unprotected rod butt can exert on the body while
fighting a fish, especially one that takes a lengthy time to pursue, either due to its
size and strength or the lightness of the tackle.
When fishing for smaller game fish under 60 lbs.
don't forget your light tackle belt from Sumo Tackle. Choose from the 2-pocket model
allowing you to store extra items while fishing or the padded model.
Each comes with extra long Velcro belt, free plier pouch,
new nylon gimbal insert for added protection.
