A transparent, self-adhesive ruler you can slap right on your fishin’ rod or wherever else. Less things I have to carry from hole to hole, the more better-er.
I cut one down to show 9-14″ and stuck it on a panfish setup…so I know how big a crappie or ‘gill actually is — by holding its snout next to the butt of the rod — when I’m outside hole-hopping:
Tough to see but easy in person! Only downfall is now I can’t call a 9″ bluegill a 10-incher…. Really cool idea. Will definitely be doing up a few more “fairy wands” soon.
Met BeaverTail owner Andrew Gullickson at the Fishing Careers Workshop and of course got to talkin’ fishing. Found out he’s making these baits out of actual beaver-tail meat [!] plus a special blend of “herbs and spices” that keep it fresh — without changing consistency or flavor. Stays on the hook crazy long and talk about au natural:
Safely (and legally) refill your own 1-lb propane cylinders for pennies on the dollar:
Few reasons that’s important:
1) Only legal and safe way to refill your own. Yup, those cheaper adapters your using to refill cylinder in your garage are illegal and rather sketchy.
2) So you’re not spending $3+ per cylinder, just to be able to use about $0.30 worth of propane.
3) Not actually supposed to throw used 1-lb cylinders in the recycling or trash since they’re considered hazardous waste.
If you wanna check Flame King out in person, they’ll have a booth at the Fargo Ice Show Dec 7-9. Free parking and don’t have to drive into the cities? You know where I’ll be lol!
Nothing fancy or tricky, just flat-out works. Been using ’em myself for the last year and they’re slick…plus no cardboard cuts (lol):
