'Holiday Time Has Come For All Sportsmen', December 19, 1998, Leo Maloney

"Even though fishing season may be months away, one unusual stocking stuffer that is sure to please is the Snagaway Lure Saver. This compact device slides down the line and locks onto your lure snagged deep underwater. The reel and line of the kit then enable you to retrieve your lure. It is definitely the best that I have used, and it will save you many valuable and expensive lures for a modest price."

Hooks and Antlers Weekly Column, 'Retrieving Snagged Lures', Advance News, June 28, 1998, Mike Seymour

"With the price of today's fishing lures, snags can be a fairly costly proposition over the course of a season. If you're interested in a device for retrieving snagged lures, you might want to check out the Snagaway Lure Saver... My son Matt and I do some trolling for walleyes on a stretch of the Grasse River that has a lot of submerged tree limbs. Since snags are a common occurrence when trolling minnow plugs, we decided to try the Snagaway. We successfully retrieved five Rapalas. At a cost of $5 a piece, Snagaway paid for itself in a single outing."

'Tool Goes Down and Gets Snagged Lures', Syracuse Herald, April, 1998, J. Michael Kelly

"Since many modern fishing lures cost from $5 to $10 apiece, anglers have been known to break down and cry when one of their giant-killers becomes stuck in a sunken log. Fortunately, some of those lost lures can be recovered with a product called Snagaway.

'Ideal Christmas Stocking Stuffer for Outdoorsmen', The Daily Gazette, by Ed Noonan

"Brian Engel, from Ghent in Columbia County, has a product that every angler should have in his or her tackle box. It is called the Snagaway, and it will save every angler money.

The Snagaway is designed to retrieve your lure once it has gotten hung up. Three simple components make up the Snagaway: a nickel-plated steel retriever, line, and a reel. When the vice-like grip locks onto the lure, you will be able to pull it free from wood, rocks, and weeds. By retrieving one or two snagged lures, the Snagaway pays for itself."
