If you are still doing the tuck-the-rod under your arm or jamming it into your stomach or thigh when fishing, instead of using the wrestling champion belt-like fish fighting belt, then you will be delighted to know that there’s a better, compact and more discrete alternative to either of the aforementioned methods. Invented by L.A.-based Marcus Hunt, the Fishing Buckle is essentially a sport fishing belt that also doubles as an everyday waist belt when you are not fishing. The buckle is star of the show here. It is of die-cast alloy mix and function like any regular belt buckle, but with a flip of the thumb, it transforms into a support system for most saltwater fishing rods.

It maybe compact, but it promised to offer support and leverage required, while providing a full range of motion and control needed to reel in catches. Key design features to ensure it works as it should include a sturdy and rugged construction, dual bracket system to counter rod torque when combating the fish and a raised fin on the inside to keep the rod centered. Unless you are expecting to reel in big-ass Marlins, the The Fishing Buckle Sport Fishing Belt should be ample for handling regular fishing adventure, be it at the dock, on the beach, or on a boat, without making you look like a retired wrestler wearing his/her past glory. The best part is, of course, you don’t need to take it off when you are done fishing as it also also a belt.

The clean, minimalistic design makes quite a fashion statement too. The buckle itself is either electroplated or power coated to help protect it against saltwater corrosion and it comes with a tightly woven polypropylene belt that’s wide enough to ensure good support, while remaining flexible and fast drying (just in case it gets wet when you are dealing with a 60 lbs sailfish). The Fishing Buckle Sport Fishing Belt is now on Kickstarter, hoping to raise $20K to get the production off the ground. Prices start at $25. And if all goes as planned (i.e. the campaign gets funded), you can expect to see your very own Fishing Belt sometime in September 2016.
