Many people prefer lines that is invisible in the water.
Why then are all the mieliebomb holders bright yellow or orange? Would it not be better if they were black? Do anyone know where I can buy some black or near to black plastic mieliebomb holders?

Hi

I use to take a can of spray paint and paint all mine a charcoal color.

Now I just use mushroom sinkers.

Thanks.
The reason I don't want to paint them is because I am scared the smell of the paint may scare off the fish.

Just leave them in the sun to dry properly for a day and I use to dip them in vanilla essence and store just to "wash" off any smells.

Plus when you open your box all you smell is vanilla.

You can indeed buy neutral colours. Just need to keep an eye out.

Not in Bloemfontein. I am prepared to do a online purchase if anyone can direct me to a online shop.
