We're Hooked: The Lure Tamer Keeps Rod & Reel Safe from Bouncing Lures

We're Hooked: The Lure Tamer Keeps Rod & Reel Safe from Bouncing Lures

Every great idea for a new fishing tool, or any new innovation, comes after a realization. Some come after a painful realization. Marcus Whitehead, the inventor of the Lure Tamer lure container, had one of the latter. I’ve been a guide and a captain and a fisherman all my life and the worst-looking injury I’ve ever had was in my garage,” he says, rather cheerful about it in the present day. “I was picking up one of my fishing rods and someone didn’t secure the lures on their rod...the lure went right into my thumb. It was dark so I...

We’re always happy to have you at the TYEPRO Blog...and we only wish that we could provide you more information on a more frequent basis. There’s so much to be said about angling and only so much time! For this reason, we like to pepper the TYEPRO Facebook page with frequent links to content being hosted elsewhere on web, which we believe our followers will find interesting. We also understand that in the ever-expanding digital world, it’s tough to catch every little nugget that we release.

Few fishing enthusiasts are patient enough to stay put for an entire day of fishing;...

Tom's Letter: The Lesson Pokémon GO Holds for Fishing Enthusiasts

Tom's Letter: The Lesson Pokémon GO Holds for Fishing Enthusiasts

Topnotch Innovations is all about, well, innovation. That’s why we developed the TYEPRO and TYEPRO Fly & Ice: We knew that amateur anglers and aging anglers alike needed a new method to make tying knots simpler, both for fumbling hands and failing eyes. I admit, however, there is one piece of new technology I don’t quite get, and it’s dominating the news right now: Pokémon GO. It may be that I was a few decades early for the Japanese television show’s first wave of popularity. Or, it may be that I’m too focused on “reality” to grasp the appeal of...

TYEPRO Original Vs. TYEPRO Fly & Ice: Understand The Difference

TYEPRO Original Vs. TYEPRO Fly & Ice: Understand The Difference

It sounds like an obvious question: “What’s the difference between the original TYEPRO tool and the TYEPRO Fly & Ice?” True, one is designed primarily for ice fishing and fly fishing... but understanding the reasons why one is used for X situation and not Y can be a big help if you find that your preferred hook or jig isn’t meshing with a TYEPRO tool according to plan. The most basic thing to understand is the size of the hook, fly or jig that you’re using. NOTE: The method of measuring hooks and flies is hardly an official one. Although different...
