TACKOBOX's POLETAP SMARTROD, the world's first fishing rod with built-in strike alert technology, sounds an alarm when a fish hits your line. It's now available in select Walmart stores nationwide. Great gift for the beginner fisherman or new technology that will one day make fishing a lost art?

Apparently you simply cast your rod, push a button to turn on the strike alert technology, and wait for a fish to strike. You can choose how sensitive the alarm is by selecting the High, Med or Low setting for bank fishing, drift fishing or waves and wind but there is no incorrect way to use it.
