This video shows how to assemble a Yellow Bird side surface planer board. These planer boards are amazing to use. They are compact, brightly colored foam boards featuring the Scotty release. They are also the original planer board, evolving since 1970 into what it is today.
However, it might be added that the assembly process can be a little hard to figure out for the newbie, and hard to achieve by hand. The key ring attachments are very sturdy and unlikely to break or open while fishing, but are also tough to open with your bare hands.
The video above shows how you can use two basic office supplies (a staple remover and a paper clip) to make the process a lot easier, so you can get to the fun part fast and without a sweat.
