DIY Surf Fishing Gear: Homemade Plug Retreiver
Ever lose a plug down the bottom of the tubes in your plug bag? Me too. I was using a hook from a hook and pick set (Eventually, it would rust and be destroyed if I leave it in the bag), but I had a better idea . . .
I was using some wine corks for some projects, and thought I could use a couple of synthetic corks and some wire to make a retrieval tool.
Here is what you need:
- Wine cork
- 6-8" of bailing wire
- Super glue
- Drill and bit slightly larger than the wire
- Wire snips
- Needle nose pliers
Here is what to do:
- Cut wire to length and bend one end to a hook
- Drill a hole halfway through the cork
- Drip super glue into the drilled hole
- insert the wire into the hole
- Allow to dry and cure
Done! About five minutes and free. Problem solved.
