At 86 yrs old. Inventor and/or pimp of the classic "Pocket Fisherman" and a host of other TV stuff. Quite the little piece of equipment, Really a handy outfit. The "Pillow Guy" of my youth.


Every kid needs a Dog and a Curmudgeon.

Remember Bowe Bergdahl, the traitor.

Beware! Jill Pudlewski, Ron Oates and Keven Begesse are liars and thiefs!

Used to sell many of his products in the drug store I worked in. The pocket fisherman was by far, the best of them all.

I've got a pocket fisherman still in the original box from many years ago. I remember him best from the infomercial "Set it, and forget it!"

RIP Ron.

But wait! There's more! If you order now, we'll include the Cap Snaffler! Snaffles caps, cans and bottles. Order now and we'll double your order for just the cost of shipping and handling.
Yes, I cannot unforget those adds.
