OK - I gave my new line tray a crack on Saturday on Loch Beanie. Absolutely horrible. Wondering if I need to keep trying, but basically I had to concentrate too hard to get the line into it, and then it tangled a lot. In moving water or with heather round my feet I'm sure I'd reconsider, but I'd not bother again in still water.

Cheers

Thanks Phil most impressed with your home made line tray.
Just had a thought as to what may be ideal for the job. My good lady keeps getting these wall planters for the garden. You know the sort of thing I mean. Ridgid plastic tub,rounded on one side and flat on the other for wall fixing. May have a scout around and see what there is up for grabs. Think they are about 1 to 2 range.Will be simple to put some loops on to go onto your belt. Will let you know what happens team.

Superglued two cones into the bottom of the line tray and just tested them - yes they came off!

Jim must have binned the keep net but found an old collapsible groundbait tub that must be about 35 years old.
Made of bright yellow,thick pvc material.
Metal coathook bent around the top rim, 4 thick bagties looped on to attach to my dressing gown cord and I am in business
I am not a style guru,love the diy stuff
Will post up a piccy next week to give you all a good laugh. :cool:
