North Wales Kayak Fishing

This is my first impressions review
The orca is the fastest rod release of any holder on the market
Fibre reinforced engineering nylon, offers strength, resilience and reliability
completely adjustable to multiple vertical and horizontal positions
with one quick motion, your fishing rod is lifted straight up into the fish fighting position
Orca Rod Holder with new 241L locking push button combination side/deck mount.

The orca is a little larger in size than the standard Scotty rod mounts
The quick release system is very clever.

The rod is firmly locked in place above but a quick snatch and the whole thing opens to realise the rod.

You can see how the whole thing works here it is in the open position ready for a rod to be but in and then pressed down

The new Scotty lock base mount is brilliant on this rod holder no more twisting to set the rod holder just press the realise button and swivel the holder to the desired position.

I think this is a great piece of kit firstly it will allow us to lock a rod in this rest and slowly paddle trolling a lure or set of feathers or even a redgill type lure if a fish does take he lure it will not pull the rod out of the rest so there is no fear of loosing this rod and reel while trolling .for the tope guys again your not going to get a fish suddenly pull your rod over while you are having a drink because the rod is locked in .it takes a good quick pull to release the rod and reel so this is a real plus .the retail of this new Scotty orca is £29.95 I feel it is sure to be a winner .
