The American Fish Tree is built tough and is designed for easy deployment. There are a number of creative ways to deploy the American Fish Tree, but the safest handling method is to use a standard boat pole and marine rope.
For handling, simply lift the American Fish Tree away from your body using a boat pole and ease the fish habitat into the water. Use the rope to controll descend and tie off at your desired depth. (Phote at right)
The versatility of the American Fish Tree is unmatched because of our patented designed features. These features create multiple options for placing the American Fish Tree. Options like:
- Vertical placement tied to docks or piers (as shown);
- Vertical placement suspended from floating buoys;
- Horizontal placement with, or without, anchoring;
- Weighted and non-weighted vertical placement.
Unlike other fish attractor manufacturers or homemade brush piles, the American Fish Tree assembly is self-sinking and does not require adding weights or anchoring to be deployed. Weighting and anchoring the American Fish Tree is solely the discretion of the owner and buyer.
For those choosing to anchor the American Fish Tree in a concrete mix, we have added an extra design feature on the 5000 series trunk to give the American Fish Tree unsurpassed strength and durability.
