Tired of expensive lures slipping off the line when an unexpected toothy critter cuts your mono? Putting a crimp or knot between your lure and beads will sometimes catch the lure if the hook is taken off.

Take a short piece of PVC pipe and run your bumper line through a hole drilled in it. Tie off the bumper and drop the PVC into a rod holder. Quick and easy bumper deployment at the right height every time.
