    im sure im not the first one to do this but after watcching guys yoyo fish i decided to use bycycle tubes for shock cords on my limb lines. it works very well. i think my fish in the boat ratio is much better than tieing off hard to a tree or a bluff line

    I Use Tubes From A Tractor Tire. They Are A Little Tougher Than Automotive Tubes And Just As Flexible.

    I use bungie or black rubber straps, I tie to a to both end of the bungie with a loop long enough to get tight just as the bungie is maxing out in stretch. Have enough line to hang down to the hook and enough excess to on the other end to tie to something solid. I only use them when there is not a suitable limber limb available. 33lb blue is the biggest one on a bungie line so far!

    I only use heavy duty truck tire innertubes. They are thicker,stronger and last longer.

    NO.......I CUT IT UP IN 7 TO 8 INCH STIPS WITH A 16 TO 18 INCH LEADER AND A 8/0 EAGLE CLAW HOOK. A WHOLE TRACTOR TIRE INNER-TUBE WILL MAKE MORE THAN 1000 STRIPS.
