    Are ya sick of hooks floppin around when ya transport your gear or when you are relocatein in the boat? Heres a little tip that works for me. Lots of rods have a small metal loop to secure your hook to and alot don't. So what do ya do. I'm sure lots of us just put the hook in an eye on the rod rite next to the line and go on about our bussiness. NAH! That hook point floppin around near the line can cause "DRAMA" It could nick the line without you knowin it. The pics attached are pretty much self explanatory. They work fine and have no negative effect on handlein the rod while fitein a fish. My only recomendation is use the heavy ones. They cost a bit more but they last and can take a beatin. Hope ya can use em on your gear. They been performin for me for quite sometime. ENJOY!

    Thanks George for another great idea. You need to write a book but that would take time from your fishing. We understand. Just keep the good ideas coming to the BOC.
