    No i find i get more dirt and mess after reeling in 😉

    There are no situations where this would even come into my fishing.

    • Yeah I think this product is for the elitist tackle tart, It’s not for me either but I do know anglers on my syndicate who use fake grass mat’s as a splash mat so they would love this!
