When you have been fighting a fish for quite a while and your groin starts to hurt from the end of the butt of the rod jamming into it, you'll start to think you should have got yourself an Alvey Rod Bucket from your local BCF store.
Place the rod bucket around your waist and place the butt of the rod into the rod bucket, and your pain will go away, making it easier to fight the fish.
The length of many surf rods makes it trying at times to hold a surf rod for lengthy periods of time. Save added stress on your arms and lower back by donning a rod bucket. The idea of fishing the beach is to gain enjoyment so there is no point in suffering undue body stress!
