Protecting Your Fingers from the Boom Sliders
There is a solution! Go to your nearest fishing tackle shop and purchase a bag of small beads (we do not know the fisherman’s jargon for them I’m afraid). They are about 5 mm in diameter and have a hole through the centre for threading on a line. These are a nice force-fit on the slider ends and do a great job in protecting your fingers – especially in cold weather.
