    Default Boat fishing rag

    Sorry for the odd post! Trying to come up with a good fishing rag for my boat. I used hand towels all year and most of them blew out going down the road. Any inovative designs or material out there?

    I got a big bundle of shop rags from somewhere. Keep cycling them through the washing machine on a regular basis. Must have been 24 in the original pack and I'm down to a dozen a couple of years later. Not a bad investment for less than $20 as I recall. Seems to me I've seen bundles of hand towels at Wally World that didn't cost much more.

    I use old hand towels and tye-wrap them to my railing. I have 4 installed. The rain keeps them "relatively clean" during the season but they come off and soaked in bleach and washed in the fall.

    That's a good idea. Thanks!

    Golf towels work great cause they have a clip on them to clip onto the golf bag.

    I use reg old hand towels with a shower clip through them to hang. Then wash and let hang dry after every trip, or try too. I hate taking care of rags, but they are a gotta have.

    I use blue shop rags. I cut one of the corners back about 4 inches and tie one on each side of the back deck hand rails. Also keep about a dozen in the cab for various reasons.

    We use the Alaska Aces game towels. LOL Just like a golf towel. I punch a hole in it and use a tarp grommet and hang it on the back window with a suction cup hook. They work great all year long until next hockey season.

    I actually have a towel that was made for fishing.
    Has an eyelet in one corner for attaching to something to hold it.
    I use a large key ring and it connects to an eye under the bow seat on my fishin' boat.
    Could probably use carabiners for other connection ideas.

    Why have I never had towels except paper towels on my boat? I will now, great source, Mike, just bought on Ebay, and they ship from Ellijay, GA, been through there about 20 times on way to Lake Conasauga, one of my all time favorite places! Shipping free, so about $20 for 24 towels, not bad, thought Rob's 5-finger discount does beat it!

    Costco sells the bundles of microfiber rags, as well. I use them for my window cleaning business and they are a great product.
