We have done the potato chip, pop corn thing in the harbor. Hilarious to see the bird chasers race over.

Also... on the Rain-X... I think it should've been noted, NOT ON POLY OR PLASTIC LENSES..... even glass lenses I would hesitate.

Did the potato chip thing to an entitled guide out on the harbor last year.  I openly munched on the potato chips with a bag in my hand as he came screaming up to the side of us with his client.   My daughters got a huge kick out of it, as none of us were holding rods to play out the scene.  The client was casting furiously, oblivious to the shoal of wet potato chips the seagulls were diving at.  But the arrogant guide knew what was up. :lol :lol

(he and I have had words, previously)

Ha... we called it the cheetos trick.  Talk about a great way to mislead a bunch of Watch Hill albie chasers.

With the amount of tying I do I could make one of those scrap catchers from a V8 can.

How much V8 do you drink?

The five and a half ounce can cut in half could hold my clippings from a year of tying.
