Today’s tip comes to you in a thrilling new format – a synopsis of a phone call that occurred last week at the Deneki Outdoors World Headquarters.
Tom Larimer: “What’s up?” [Note: this is why we do not write screenplays]
Your Humble Editor: “Not much. I’m about to make a bunch of sinktips for my trip to the Dean next week. I’m bringing a set of MOW tips but I want some other lengths and some duplicates as well. The river’s high but dropping fast and I can’t really decide which lengths to make.” [Note: higher, dirtier water generally dictates shorter tips]
Tom: “Rather than wasting a bunch of time making tips you don’t wind up using, why not just bring up the materials and cut the tips when you get there? You can look at the river and decide then. That’s what I do – it only takes a minute or two per tip, and that way I don’t waste materials either.”
Editor: “That’s a great point.”
Tom: “Yeah, and there’s a blog post for you.”
So there you have it – make your sinktips when you get there! And not only did you get some compelling dialogue – you got a rare look at the incredibly scientific method behind our blog post selection process.
so….you just cut some T-14 to length and put perfection loop on each end?????? or do some fancy knot connection braided loop etc to make your tips.???
Hi Geff! Here’s a post with a quick explanation of the simplest method.
Thanks for stopping by!
