In this tips section it doesn’t matter how big or small, how simple or how complicated the tip is, all that matters is that it either helps us to catch more or bigger fish, or just makes life a lot simpler or easier.

Let’s kick off with this one from Paul Baxter:

Preserving Starlights
After a night fishing trip a few years back I froze what hemp I hadleft only to find when I got it out again for my next trip a weeklater I must have dropped a starlight in my bait before I froze it.It was still bright enough to use all night, so since then I havealways frozen my starlights after use.

Sometimes you can freeze and reuse themseveral times before having to invest in a new one.
