Rhys Davis Strip Holders

The Rhys Davis bait holders are made by Rhys Davis Ltd. located in Sidney, British Columbia, Canada. The bait holders are available in more than 20 different colors and several different sizes. The different bait holders can be used for whole anchovy, whole alewife, whole smelt, whole herring (red or green tray), or cut bait strips. Rhys Davis also makes precision cut herring strips for their bait holders in several sizes.

Rhys Davis

The Rhys Davis bait rig comes with a leader with a single trebble hook and the bait head. The whole bait or cut bait strip is inserted into the bait head, toothpicks are needed to secure the bait in the bait head and to adjust the leader length from the bait holder to the hook). The bait head requires tuning to acheive the proper rolling motion. Tuning is preformed by bending the flat portion of the plastic bait holder. The more severe the bend the faster the rotation. Some people have been known to heat the bait holders and mold them to the curved side of beer cans.
