a fine fishing bag

On my recent fishing excursion, I used this bag for my boat gear. I like to have a few basic things handy to me, since we are out for a few hours at a time and it is definitely not convenient to go back to the resort on a whim. This bag was a gift from Debbie, and is made entirely of duct tape. If you want to make something like this for yourself, you can find many instructional ideas on the web. Many of the directions I found describe making a woven bag, but my bag was overlapped strips like the one I found on this video. It was waterproof enough to withstand some splashes and raindrops. And a good size to hold my little tackle box, rain jacket & pants, snacks, sunscreen and water. And, it was a definite fashion statement! I am noticing lots of new colorful tapes in the craft stores and online, so I am sure there are endless possibilities for you. What will you create with duct tape?
