Not all products at ICAST seek to reinvent the wheel. Some have simply stood the test of time.
The Walton’s Thumb Fisherman’s Multi-Tool was first introduced in the early 1970s by Hank Roberts, but the Creek Company is proud to showcase the ingenius product at this year’s show.
The Colorado firm, best known for its pontoon boats, float tubes and paddleboards, believes the product has so many useful and unique features applicable to fishermen that it needed to return.
Named after Izaak Walton, author of The Compleat Angler, the compact tool has ten functions – four of them lever operated (pincer, cutter, crimper and split shot remover) and six more folding tools (knife, screwdriver, split ring remover, scissors, hook eye cleaner/knot pick and lanyard ring).
The Walton’s Thumb is made of stainless steel and is small enough to hang from a vest or tuck into a pocket.
