Custom quality fishing handline by Tim Swanson of Owl Eyes Wilderness Survival. This quality handline is 100% cut, carved, and sanded by hand. A timeless and beautiful fishing kit, these handlines are surely a special piece of gear to carry with you on your adventures.


Each handline is carved stencil free with a knife, sanded for hours, and oiled with Bear Butter (bear fat mixed with beeswax). Each handline is generously wrapped with 25 lb test  braided line backing and a 6 lb test monofiliment leader. A barrel swivel attaches the braided line and monofilament. At the end of the leader, a snapswivel is attached to allow you to quickly change your lures. A lure comes included with your handline. 

This line setup has been specifically refined by Tim Swanson to allow for less tangling of the line, ease of casting, and success catching/releasing fish.  

Handlines are vertsitile, lightweight, compact, and can be stored in many places. These are a great gift for backpackers, hunters, and of course, fishermen. Keep one in your survival kit, car, backpack, and fishing bag.


Each custom quality handline comes with a care sheet and are ready to use right out of the package! 


Please note: These handlines are carved completely by hand. The exact shape of each handline varies and may look different than the handlines in the photos. Each handline is a one of a kind work of art and no two handlines are alike! Each handline measures approximately 6 inches long by 1.5 inches high.
