Behold the SmartRod, You Big Dummy

The TACKOBOX SmartRod is supposedly the “world’s first and only programmable fishing rod using computer controlled accelerometer technology”. Which is really just a fancy way of saying it’s a fishing rod with a built-in programmable bite alarm that “feels” vibrations in the rod and alarms when it “thinks” you have a fish. Check out this promo video below and let us know what you think.

The SmartRod won’t be a headline sponsor for the B.A.S.S., but you can bet there’s market for these in the UK where carp fishing and bite alarms go together like fish and chips.
