automatic fisherman

This is my version of an automatic fisherman. This one is set with the rod tip inserted onto a "load point" and the line draped ove a V on the end of the trigger. When the line is pulled the trigger is pulled down and the rod tip springs up. The hook is then set and the flag on the end of the rod pulses up and down with every movement of the fish.

Unusually warm winter here in NH last year. I didn't get a chance to go. open water till Feb. I usually run 1/2 these and 1/2 traditional free spool rigs. It is not unusual for them to hit one type or the other exclusively.
