Move over, Pocket Fisherman

A real challenger steps up after three decades.

After 30 years of undisputed market dominance, the vaunted "Pocket Fisherman" may finally have some meaningful competition. The challenger, which boldly claims to be "The World's Smallest Mini-Fishing Fish Rod Pen Reel Pole," extends to a full 37 inches and can handle 120 yards of 5-pound line, according to GeekAlerts.

And don't worry if you're a novice, because the $18 gadget kit includes hooks and "everything you need to get started fishing"--except for the worms, presumably. The special gold and red version, however, will set you back a hefty $60.

But we think either version is highly preferable to bass fishing on the Wii .
