For those of you who don't know what "crochet" is, ask your mother. If she dosen't know ask her mother, etc.
I have similar problems with the eyes so when I'm home and tying leaders I use a piece of black cardboard behiind the line so it stands out better, on the run I look around for anything dark, tackle bag, jeans etc

I don't think bringing up a tips thread like this one is a bad thing, especially given he added a tip and a pretty good one at that. Cheap and practical.

Tip

use the little silca sachets in shoe boxes
and throw them in your lure boxes
they help to suck up the moisture and helps trebles from rusting

FUJI Ezekeeper

Guys
the Ezekeeper's are available through any store in Australia. They come with 2 x clips and handful of UV stabilized o rings to suit most rods. They retail for around $10.

Ladies hair band for strapping spool with thick wind on leader. $2.50 for 20 bands. Better than rubber band and cheaper than reel brand spool strap.

I don't know if it has been posted but i love using a bum bag from columbia, especially when land based fishing. really easy acces to plastics, accessories, leader spools clippers etc. Not only does it have a belt to attach things like a gimble/holder for beach fishing but it has a waterproof pocket for the phone and camera. Another great 'must-have' is my leatherman, the thing is tough and nails and the saw on it even cut a rough 7-10cm thick tree branch to retrieve a lure stuck on it.

I love my Backwater hand paddle. They are awesome for quickly re-positioning the yak. I don't even take my normal hobie paddle when i go out anymore. These things are just soo much easier.
These guys are Aus Distributor of them, which is where i got mine from.

If you don't wanna spend $30 then you could easily enough make your own.
