- For bottom snaps you don't reach for
- Increases the chance of getting the pull loose
- Works on many types of moves
With the Swedish innovation Draghajen, you increase your chances of releasing the fishing line from the bottom snaps you can't reach. The drag hook grips the leader and fishing line, giving you more power to pull the line free from reeds, rocks and logs without damaging the fishing rod or line.
The drag shark works on virtually any type of fishing lure and is an invaluable addition to your fishing gear. As the drag shark only needs to get a grip on the leader to give you a good grip, it works equally well on wobblers and jerkbaits as it does on spoon drags, spinners and large rubber baits.
Here's what to do when you hit rock bottom
Tie the recovery line to the towing shark, place the towing shark over the tensioned fishing line and drop the towing shark into the water. Keep the fishing line taut until the towing shark has followed the fishing line all the way down to the fishing line. The inner groove of the towing shark guides it along the fishing line.
When the drag shark reaches the haul or the tack, start pulling the recovery line home. The back of the drag shark is lifted upwards and the front locks into the lure or pike. When the dragon shark is hooked, pull the recovery line to release the fishing line. The drag doesn't have to reach all the way to the fishing line, it just has to reach the peg for you to get a good grip and increase your chances of pulling the line free.
Some useful tips
It may take some practice to get it right, but a good tip is to keep the fishing line taut. If the angle of the fishing line is flat, you can usually just let the trolling shark go. If the angle is steep, you may need to hold back on the retrieve line to keep the drag shark on the fishing line.
About innovator Stefan Ekberg
Stefan has always loved to fish. But after a number of expensive wasted moves, Stefan started casting where he didn't really want to cast - just to avoid losing more fish. This annoyed Stefan and he decided to look for solutions to the problem. Stefan used his prototype Drag Shark extensively for 17 years before a friend encouraged him to produce it. Today, other fishing enthusiasts can also use the Drag Shark to get their drags off.
Stefan says: "I have spent so much time and money on the Drag Shark that it can never be profitable. There is no chance. However, I don't have to sit in the rocking chair in the future and regret not making it. So there's the win for me in this project. It works. It exists and it will save a lot of money for people who like to fish."
