Well it would seem that it has never left mine,I have always had the safety pin fishing idea buried just under the surface.
One day while I was visiting the local sporting goods section looking for fishing supplies,I was doing my usual,griping about wanting this and that but not wanting to pay the extortion prices I seemed to be required to pay.It hit me like a ton of bricks straight from my childhood fishing with a safety pin days,I could save myself three dollars every time I made one of these.And believe me I have lost count of how many" three dollars" I have saved myself from spending.
Step 1: Safety pin
People normally snicker when I first open my fishing tackle box,they find the beads,safety pins,wire,feathers,fur,yarn,and super glue, pretty funny. But after an hour I am normally filling request to make me this, or can you , or have you ever tried. By then it is me that is snickering as I know they will soon be shopping for their fishing supplies in the fabric dept. just like me.
