A simple handline reel 3.5 in diameter by 1 in thick, capable of landing anything from freshwater bream to bull reds and groupers offshore.
We took a rod and spinning reel and removed anything that was not absolutely necessary to perform the basic functions: casting, retrieving, sensitivity and the ability to fight big fish. The Yoyito is the result of years of design and experimentation, the essence of a fishing system that is tried and true.
People have been fishing for at least 40,000 years and handlining is one of the earliest forms. Even today, millions of people around the world use a handline to feed themselves and their families.
The Yoyito is not the only handline reel on the market, but it sits in a class of its own. It is the most compact and durable reel of its kind. We took a 21st-century approach to improve on a design that has been around for millennia.
