|Boot Lace Tip
by Bruce E. Harang
Here is a method to
"tie" your wading bootlaces without the need to tie and untie knots. Place a
small plastic spring-loaded closure (used on stuff sack draw cords) on your bootlaces.
This will hold the laces tight while you are fishing and allow quick easy
"untying" of the wet (frozen) laces at the end of the day. Even cold frozen
fingers have no trouble releasing your laces using this method.
Total cost is about $2.00 for the
pair of closures you will need. These are readily available at most camping/hiking shops.
