Gamagatsu casting finger guard, keeps your fingers intact when loading up with braid.

A pair of Aquaskinz gloves ($15 on sale) late last year. I usually never wear gloves but there were a couple days were they really came in handy... they worked well.

I need one of those. Braid is making a mess of my index finger.

I actually bought a head lamp a few years ago for when I was working as a movie grip. Last year, I started bring it with me when I fish. Last night as I was wading through the swamp wondering how I ever got along without it!

Just an FYI for folks, you can get away with even cheaper lanyards if you make them yourselves out of old cell phone charger cords.

Here's a post I put up a while back about doing so.

Tool Lanyards

Also, I don't know if they still carry them, but the shops out in Montauk and J&H in Oakdale used to carry little leather patches with an elastic back to put over your index finger for only a couple bucks, or the waterproof medical tape was always an easy and inexpensive option too.

Rod holder for my belt made from a ring cut out of 2" pvc on a strap of webbing. Put it together with a Speedy Stitcher which went for around $12. Excellent for people who only have two hands.
I learned this tip from Manny Moreno's seminar that Zeno put on this Winter. Check out Speedy Stitcher; great gadget!

I have good luck using the tough stringy lips of the clam to tie on to the hook. I learned this bottom fishing from party boats.
