    Well, truth be told, the red ones had been given to me many years ago by another member of the forum, but I don't remember exactly who it was. I think I remember, but I don't want to make a mistake by giving the wrong name. However, I have made some that are very much like the red ones that OFM mentioned and they do work very well.

    99% of the time, no, you won't need it. But that one time, when you're cold and wet, or just managed to go "f*ck me!" While standing on a muddy river bank...and its stable. You can carry around the block/rod for years with no deterioration. I carry one of the Doans blocks, the ferro was worn off years ago, replaced with a Swiss fire steel. It's just...."insurance" if I ever decide to go swimming, in January, again. ;)

    Thanks. It's one of our favorites. Pahranagat Lake. It's a National Wildlife Refuge about 1 hour from Las Vegas. We like to camp there year round.

    The funny thing about it, is that most of the people I work with have never heard of it.
