    Good idea....just make sure that the stringer is not a poisonous species. I don't think I'd be trying it with Oleander.

    I have done that many times, especially when I was younger. Haven't used that method in a while. Good to see, its still alive and well.

    That picture, and the "multiple uses" comment made me smile, remembering fish stringers like that being used as everything from a throttle cable on 440 Rupp powered go cart to a manual transmission kick-down actuator on some old Chevy the neighbor kid had.
