Default Rod and Reel Leashes by Nereus Fishing

Super strong rod and reel leashes with your choice of two different designs with four different carabiner styles.

These reel leashes are the perfect solution to keep your trolling rods secure. They are also great for bottom fishing with young or inexperienced anglers. The coiled design keeps the leashes out of your way, yet reach all the way across the cockpit when needed. The leash material is 4mm, 1200lb Lindgren-Pitman Primeline monofilament, which is extremely durable, made for the saltwater environment, and made in the USA. The reel leashes are hand-made in Melbourne, FL.

The coils are less than 6 inches long and stretch to over 12 feet. We go the extra mile and flare the ends of the mono before crimping to ensure that the leashes will NOT fail under the toughest of conditions. The high-quality 316 Stainless Steel carabiners are attractive and easy to use. Proudly made in the USA.

Also available in a shorty version with no coil and an overall length of 30 inches. See website.

Four carabiner styles available.
All carabiners are 316 stainles steel.

Loop end style: $15.95
4-pack of loop end style: 1/4" or 3/16" carabiner: $54.95 and free shipping
6-pack of loop end style: 1/4" or 3/16" carabiner: $74.95 and free shipping

Good question. I should make that more clear. The material is Lindgren-Pitman 4.0 mm Primeline mono rated at 1200lbs. It is made in the USA, extremely tough, and made for the saltwater environment.

Thanks. I put quite a bit of effort into developing these. I'm biased, but they are my favorite style because there is no rope in the cockpit to trip you and get covered in fish blood and slime.

I'm sorry, but the color shown is the only one I can offer at this time. I'm trying to work through it, but the minimum order quantity for the raw material in any color is extremely high (tens of thousands of feet). I just don't have the space to store multiple spools that big right now.

I hope to fix this soon. What color would you be interested in? I was thinking black.

Thanks for the interest.

Love the idea! Question- how firmly do they hold the coil? I have apprehension of them finding their way to one of my props....

Are you referring to the coil holding itself while in normal use or after a rod has jumped overboard? The diameter of the coil material is almost 3/16 and it is pretty stiff. I don't have my drag scale with me to measure, but I just picked up a 42oz weight (2lb, 10oz) off the ground and the coil stretched to about 7ft. The coil shape is thermally set into the leash. Even if you stretch the coil hard, it comes back to the coiled shape.

I don't think you could go fast enough to cause enough wind drag to stretch the coil anywhere near your prop. If you somehow could go fast enough, the coil would be straight back, and not down near the props, but I'm guessing you'd be going 100mph to have any appreciable stretch.

Edit: I fixed the store to automatically give free shipping on orders over $55. The free shipping is USPS Priority.

I apologize for that. There seems to be an intermittent issue on the back end of the website. The free shipping code has worked for many orders, but clearly needs some attention. Thank you for your patience.

Got my shipment and I am very impressed. If folks are wondering, there is a 0% chance of these getting caught in props - they are TIGHT. If anything I'm a little concerned I won't be able to stretch them to my furthest holders from my cleats! They should definitely be fine and are heavy duty.

Can't wait to post some pictures this spring with them in action

Keep your expensive rods and reels secure while keeping your cockpit free of trip hazards.



Spring fishing will be here before you know it.

Looking for more feedback from purchasers and maybe a video or two of use. Looks good though.

I got 3 of them. They are well made. The clip did not fit the hole on my rod holder backing plate. I added a stainless locking clip to the backing plate and then was able to attach the leash. I think they will work well and certainly worth using leashes on $1,000 reals!

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm working on getting a few different options for carabiner sizes and styles. I'll update the pictures as soon as they come in. For the mean time, I have plenty of supply of the standard asymmetrical wire gate carabiners ready to go.
