InventHelp® Client Develops Modified Fishing Yo-Yo that Avoids Missed Catches and Wasted Fish (AVZ-1106)

Share Article

An Arkansas-based InventHelp client has invented the Glow Yo, which is being submitted to companies for review.

Yo-yos are used to catch and hold a fish while a user is away from the fishing site, but there’s no way to tell if there’s a fish on the line. This often results in lost and wasted fish. "In order to solve this problem, we conceived of our design," said one of two inventors from Lowell, Ark. "Yo-yos are fished often at night, and the GLOW YO will let fishermen know that the yo-yo has been tripped when the light comes on. The fisherman now knows from a distance that a fish is on and needs to be removed and re-baited."

The GLOW YO provides an easy way for a user to know if there’s a bite on the fishing line. This avoids missed catches and wasted fish, which promotes a better fishing session. Easy to use and suitable for all fishing enthusiasts, it serves as an alternative to conventional fishing yo-yos.

The original design was submitted to the Telemarketing office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
