Snatcher,

Important safety tip.Whatever you do to strap yourself to your bowl make sure it has the abitilty to be released quickly should you get washed off the rocks or swamped by an unexpected wave.

Snatcher, I use a kidney shaped laundry basket with a belt through it. In the base I have glued 6 of the cone shaped nozzles off of sealant tubes and it works perfectly even in the surf. Problem is I don't know if they come in yellow to match the dressing gown belt :)

MY FIRST POST !!
I cannot recommend a line tray enough. Whilst fishing a local reservoir recently, I stood on my fly line which was on a sharp rock. it cut through it like a hot knife through butter - I went out and got a line tray straight away - best 20.00 with hind sight I have evr spent. akes a bit of getting used to

Snatcher. Remember no glue or alchohol of any description, the thought of you with a permenant yellow apendage is not for the faint hearted!! :D :D :D

Today I saw Snatcher's new line tray and I was speechless (well almost!). He may want to patent it so we decided against posting up a photo. Without giving too much away, it is collapsable for convenience, highly visible for safety, instantly recognisable, and infinitely functional! The only problem I saw was the pyjama cord which was slightly frayed but I'm sure this bit could be hidden in the groin area so that Snatcher's pristine image could be maintained. I'm sure when you see it you will all be equally impressed.
P.S. Snatcher - that's 10 you owe me.
