Gerber Just Dropped a Line of Multitools That’ll Solve Any Fishing Hassle

They'll do everything but catch the fish

January 18, 2018 9:00 am

Even the best fishermen catch a few trees, snag their fly on a rock and, if they’re fishing correctly and reading the water, swap out lures or flies to meet the conditions.

It’s just the cost of doing business — but that doesn’t make it any less of a hassle. Which is what makes Gerber’s new LineDriver so damn appealing: it’s a fishing multitool that clips neatly onto your belt or bibb and lets you perform all those annoying but integral little tasks with greater ease.

It was invented by a Gerber designer who is also a fisherman — problems lead to solutions, they say. And his solution is a clipper that lets you snip a line one-handed, clear guck from the eye-hole and quickly tie and cinch a new line or lure thanks to a clever rotating head. It’ll help you get more out of your time on the water by letting you take fewer tools out there with you.

It’s just one piece of a new collection of fishing products from Gerber, which also includes a filet knife, magnetic pliers and a free-handed line cutter.
