My Le Trap Sluice Leash

Hey Gold Adventurers...

Last Summer I lost my $100 green plastic Le Trap sluice in the Arkansas River one day... The water came up and/or the rocks holding it gave way....and away it floated until it was out in the middle of the Ark, out of sight in the deep, fast white water. Bummer! Embarassed

Two weeks later I was back at that same spot, walked down river about 200 yards, got on top of a big boulder. Amazingly, I spotted it about 1 1/2 feet under water on the far side. I got it back, what a gift!

SO, I installed a sluice "leash" and whenever I am on the river, any stream/place I MIGHT lose it again, I tie the leash to a stick and sit a BIG rock on the stick. This way IF the sluice ever washes away I may lose my cons BUT I'll be able to reel my $100 Le Trap back in! Very Happy I used a 1/4 inch hole I drilled on both sides and about 15 feet of parachute cord. Works great!

Live and learn...
