A PLUG CARRIER
A PLUG CARRIER
I expect that all of us have had more or less trouble finding a satisfactory pocket carrier for bass pugs while fishing, as every person always caries several for a change of baits during the day. For quite a while I carried mine in their original pasteboard boxes but these were bulky to have in the pockets, and of course you get them water soaked, and when in this condition the boxes often came apart and the hooks attacked themselves to the different parts of your anatomy. After en during this for a while I fitted up a carrier which has given very satisfactory service.
I procured a piece of automobile inner tubing about eight inches long and sewed one end of it shut, using heavy waxed thread. On the other end I left one side longer than the other and cut a buttonhole in it. Sewing around it with a lighter waxed thread to keep it from tearing out.
I sewed a button on the shorter side, buttoned it shut and it was done. I made my carnet out of a small tube and it holds two minnows easily. If desired a larger tube can be used and a seam sewed through it lengthwise dividing it into two compartments:
If you wish, the lower end may be vulcanized shut. This makes a neater job, but is no more serviceable. The hooks do not catch in the rubber or penetrate through it easily and it takes up less space than any carrier I have ever used.
