Default Popiel Pocket Fisherman Re-Released!

I was at Walgreens the other night and to my suprise I see that they have re-released the Popiel Pocket Fisherman!! I had one as a kid and loved it. Anyone else remember these? I think they were $19.99.

We could have a Pueblo Wiper contest on one of these...a fifteen pound wiper and no rod to slow him down...if I remember correctly not much line capacity either...probably not a good combination with wipers...it would probably spontaneously combust on the first run!...

I was one of the suckers of an original about 35 years ago. Among other issues of being a piece of caca, zman's comment about line capacity was my biggest beef. Each cast was limited by the knot at the end of the spool.

It'd be great to keep in the car, under the seat, to make a quick stop when some water looks good.

Always had it in the glove box of my dads truck, even had the little spot on the side for a couple of spinners.
