Spring loaded gaff.

Postby tracker » Fri Jun 13, 2014 6:14 pm

I saw a episode where Larry had a small blue spring loaded gaff. He caught a huge catfish in Colombia. I like the way it looked but cant find it anywhere. Anyone have any suggestions.

Thanks

it's a great gaff, but i'm not sure if it's available any more. I think it was called a safe t gaff.

Hi Larry and Tracker,

I was also looking for the Gaff. It looks like the company that makes the Safe T Gaff is no longer in business. I found a similar gaff called the Landing Gaff LG-140, but its only sold in Japan. (I looked everywhere) There is one company on E-Bay that sells it for $200 in the U.S. but thats a little more than I want to spend on a Gaff. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SIOUEI-LANDING- ... 1217973995 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jvuq0GUoxn4 Its a shame the other company went out of business, it looks like a great product with safety in mind.

Larry, I love the show. You always have some very clever equipment. I really liked the wet ruler that you have in your boat. What a better way to measure a fish and keep him healthy enough to release. That's a brilliant design.

hi e
thanks for the post. pretty nifty little gaff. I'm pretty sure the safe t gaff guys were tool makers who liked to fish and saw the need for a good folding gaff.too bad it didn't work out.
