You need a 12V cheap sump pump station, or at least, and foot pump to free up your hands.

Comment by John Sheehan on October 23, 2016 at 4:57pm

Anyone else extending the life of their plastic lure boxes with Duct tape for cracks and Velcro strips for broken latches?

Comment by David, aka, "McScruff" on July 12, 2016 at 1:43pm
I'm picturing the clothes pin semi - permanently affixed with some baling or stiff copper wire, the end of which is also used to hold the jaws of the clip open.
When it's time to leave, loosen the wire, close the clamp and the whole thing now stows neatly.
Make two or three, and use the wire to bind them together, and you've got a multi-bundle.

I'm betting there is some way to work electrical zip ties into the project, too!
