Jameson fish tapes feature a round, flexible rod that slides easily over wires in occupied conduit, offering exceptional bending strength for maneuvering tight turns. The Little Buddy is a lightweight, portable unit handles a variety of jobs, easily fishing conduit 3/4" to 1-1/2". Typically used for running inside and outside conduit drops as well as home drops from outdoor access to a building, some technicians use it in light poles and control wiring or walker ducts. The Little Buddy operates vertically or horizontally and has a drag brake and safety feed eye to control payout. Because of its small size it fits in hard to work in and more confined spaces and the option of using the stand or the built in handle makes it versatile for many situations. Because the Jameson Little Buddy fiberglass fish tape comes in lengths from 150 feet to 300 feet we have the perfect length fish tape for almost any indoor fishing job.

FISHING CONDUIT WITH THE LITTLE BUDDY®
Identify both ends of conduit to be fished. Be sure switch gear or other components in area of vault or box will not be damaged by rod entering vault or box.
When pushing or pulling rod, always wear protective gloves.
Insert rod through safety feed guide. Failure to do so can cause a hazardous condition. Out-of-control tape can whip around, causing damage to personnel or property. The Little Buddy® can be placed on its side with metal frame on floor if situation requires it.
If conduit has existing wire or box has active switch gear, disconnect power before fishing conduit. With existing wire it may be beneficial to use appropriate size flex tip for pushing.
Adjust drag brake by tightening or loosening brake handle to minimum drag required so tape does not feed itself from canister.
Insert fish tape end into conduit. Push fish tape through conduit using short thrusts (approximately 6-12” long). This will take advantage of the tape’s column strength and minimize danger of tape breakage. Pay attention to feel of fish tape. When fish tape end enters box at end of conduit and contacts vault or box wall, impact vibrations can normally be felt in rod. Attach wire or cable being pulled to the Pulling Eye using standard methods.
