There is a lot to like about the Deluxe Angler, but it's a 5-layer SAK, which seems a bit big. (Image removed from quote.)And it is discontinued. Even at 5-layers....it would be smaller than the Swiss Champ.
I don't scale Perch, just fillet them.
Not really, no. But the toolset could be considered to be fishing oriented.
Down here where we need a scaler. Bass and pan fish abound down here, so it would be handy! Most of the trout here are at grocery stores
I have a fun story involving a RecruitIt was the mid 90's and recreational shark fishing was becoming popular around here, with a number of sponsored derbies taking place.One in particular was being heavily promoted by a local radio station, and they were going to be set up for the weigh in on the Halifax waterfront, so I decided to take it in with my young family.Here's where it becomes a SAK fishing story.The radio host announces a giveaway, the first person to come to the booth with a fishing related item wins a prize, there was a large crowd but no takers and the Dj kept asking, my oldest daughter who was around 9 at the time said "Dad we use your pocket knife when we fish can I take it up" so off she goes with my Recruit, the Dj made a big deal about the "young lady with the Swiss Army knife" and she won a set of lawn darts, the good ones with the sharpened steel tips, but I digress.Back to the story, after a few songs the Host puts out another call for a prize and again no one comes forward, this time daughter# 2 asks for the Recruit, off she goes and the Dj takes note of the knife and gave her a T-shirt.I thought it would end there, but no, another call for a prize and this time I handed the Recruit to a youngster standing nearby and off he goes, returns my knife and thanked me, this kept going with a new kid approaching me every time a giveaway was announced, with the Dj making comments about the Swiss Army knife.After about a dozen giveaways all attributed to the Recruit, the Dj announced that the " little red knife would no longer count" and he would like to meet the real owner. So I went up and we both had a chuckle and we were both surprised that the knife always found its way back to me in the crowd.Thanks for reading and here's a pic of that Recruit that had it's 15 minutes of fame
I like the ruler on the scaler, when in doubt you can measure to see if it’s of legal length.
Great story, Greg. Ahhhh, the power of SAK!
I like this thread, makes me want to get a fishing license now lol
