"Bobs fish holder" handles
« on: April 09, 2018, 05:10:20 pm »
G'day folks!

Do you remember those??



Several years ago, those famous "Bobs fish holder" handles, from RIP "Bob's Outdoors" boutique in Michigan, were advertised in the "Great Lakes Angler" magazine as well as on the ATOM-MIK Web Store and they were very popular among the Lake Ontario charters network. Unfortunately, when Bob Hicks closed his company several years ago, he ceased the production of these handles, made using strong stainless steel computer-bent rods, rubber inserts, flexible plastic handles and red lanyards, all glued together using a strong Contact Adhesive.

In 2014, the Ontario Sportfishing Guides' Association (http://www.ontariofishcharters.ca/) contacted Mr Hicks to ask if he could still produce a batch of those, as the OSGA wanted to offer one handle to each of it's members with their membership renewal. Bob accepted to sell us his remaining parts inventory. We still have extra ones that we have decided to offer to the members of this forum, as a favor to you guys but also because we want to deplete our stock. Note that this will be a ONE TIME ONLY offer as when our inventory will be depleted that will be the end of it, as neither Bob nor the OSGA plan to purchase additional parts. So if you want some, it is now or never!

Here is the selling price list (note that the handles are cheap but Canada Post shipping cost is high unfortunately):


a) 1 x handle @ 14$ + 1 x 12$ shipping = 26$ cdn (26.00$ per unit)
b) 2 x handles @ 14$ + 1 x 12$ shipping = 40$ cdn (20.00$ per unit)
c) 4 x handles @ 14$ + 1 x 12$ shipping = 68$ cdn (17.00$ per unit)


To order, please contact Jean-Francois either by sending an email to [email protected] or call/text him at 418-875-2555. Payment will have to be done by e-transfer (INTERAC).
