You may want to do some extensive testing of deet on your products..I know that flyfishing in alaska and having deet on your hands can destroy a plastic coated $50+ flyline in only one month of use if you don't wash the thing afterwards.The following fishing season you'll find the plastic coatings broken all over the place causing the lines to hinge at those points rather then loop as they should...or you might mention people should wash the necklaces and bracelets between uses if they use that product.

Just thought I'd mention it..Welcome!

Thanks, the blog is always a work in progress. The whips, lol, you know, I have an ebook on making nylon whips that sells on that site, but won't put in a shameless plug for that here :) .

Thanks Zelph. It's a little chilly, and they say a bunch of snow is comin', but you never know for sure in NE.

Yes, absolutely! I'm going to do some experimentations soon regarding the deet. Do some time lapse photos & such. Wow, the stuff eats through the flyline coatings, eh? I'm gonna use your suggestion, thank you!

The flyline coating problem are "long term"..unfortunately you don't know until the next winter of steelhead fishing after summer(june) fishing in alaska in june..which sucks.I don't know what you would call it as far as 'eat' or just 'corrode' or "crack'..the lines don't really disinegrate as much as crack across the line everywhere..every couple feet you get a break down to the dacron center which seems to hold up.it just sucks when you are trying to throw nice loops and the line hinges flat and fails at the broken points.I had to replace all my lines(I used there) every year after going up there at $50-60 each...I was using 2-3 Teeny brand lines..extra pricey ones..
I'd soak one of your items(a little more than normal use,considering multiple exposure to the deet) and check it in winter to see what it does to it...It may break a lot of strands where they fall apart..or maybe nothing.
Up there I used deet springly but the bugs eat you so bad by the swarms it's hard to not use it,especially while walking river banks in the tundra and stirring them up by the hoards...vicious b@st@rds! :lol:
