Rentex, also known as Sprikitik is a synthetic microfiber hair-like material available locally which is used by local fishermen around the country.  This material which is available in a multitude of colors is most often trolled slowly behind pump boats or outrigger canoes.

The Rentex is tied to the main line of the handline and trolled without hooks.  The length of the Rentex is approximately 10 inches and it is quite effective for catching large needlefish and even sailfish.  Both of those species become entangled in the small strong fibers of the Rentex and cannot escape.  Many other species strike at trolled Rentex and so an alternative way to troll this material is with one or two hooks attached so that other species such as tuna, mackerel and others cannot get away when they strike.
