Hi,

A tip from my years as a torpedo fisher.

Cut a cd in half and bolt it to your flag with the straight side to the pole.
As the flag flutters the cd picks up the sun and flashes bursts of light like a mirror making you much more visible.

Good one, thanks.
If I use some of my wife's worship CDs I could have the big guy watching out for me too! :lol:

Does the CD not delaminate after a while showering you in silver foil? :lol:
