This was in the Arkansas Game and Fish Commision report for this week. Good tip for those who spend time on the water Fishing Tip: A throw line is an important piece of safety equipment when youre on the water, but the rope can get tangled in the bottom of a boat. Wash out an empty bleach bottle and slide a nylon rope through the opening. The rope will coil around the outside edge of the bottle, allowing you to put up to 50 yards of line inside. Tie the end to the handle with a half-hitch knot so that it doesnt fall in the bottle. When you need to use it, untie the knot, hold the end of the rope and throw the bottle to the person in the water. The line will flow freely and the weight of the rope will allow you to throw the line farther.
