Years ago this was Waterworks-Lamson’s breakout product in the fly fishing industry. The folks at Waterworks-Lamson thought that there had to be a better way to remove a delicately-tied fly from a hooked fish rather than the hoisting, clamping and wrenching process involved with regular hemostats. So they created a simple, innovative tool capable of reducing fish mortality by eliminating netting and handling—then named it after their home-base of Ketchum, Idaho. This tool will preserve the fish’s protective coatings and it’s exposure to air. The Ketchum Release® tool makes low-mortality release easy, plus allows you to retrieve your fly without damage to the fish. It even keeps your hands high and dry. The Ketchum Release® is available in three sizes: Big Bug for hook sizes 6-10; Standard for sizes 12-16; and Midge for sizes 18-22.
