Favorite Fishing Tips

  • Instead of rifling around the tackle box to find hooks, string them on a large safety pin. Use different pins for each size to keep your hook search quick and easy.
  • Baking soda toothpaste does more than keep your teeth clean. If you’ve been cleaning fish, squeeze a quarter-size dollop of paste into your hand, scrub well, and rinse to remove the telling odor.

Better Hunting Hacks

  • Duct tape, particularly the bright orange color, is useful for everything from marking locations to making repairs. Instead of bringing a roll, wind some around your flashlight or lighter to have it accessible if you need it.
  • Don’t simply toss extra cartridges into your pocket where they can make noise when you walk. To keep them snug and silent, bind them together with an elastic hair tie. Hair ties slip off easier than rubber bands and will ensure that your steps in the woods are quiet.

It only does if your north of the equator and if your south they give you two more. It has to do with swamp gas and weather balloons. Atmospheric anomaly can occur leading to a Jim Jones mentality and drinking coolaid. I’ve seen monkey in the forest eat poop on a stick. lick the wall and relish the asbestos!!!! True story
