Fun for kids and adults!!! Just be sure you sign up with a group to exchange gifts with. Some people just hang a FE and wonder why they don't get any treats!!

check the main meet thread for that cruise and ask if they are doing the FE's - it could be that no one has started the thread yet which makes it easy for you to start one.

if there is one someone will direct you to it.

if you don't have a photo bucket site - it's free and easy.

once you get the site ready you follow the directions to upload to the site then copy the image address and post it here

Need some help please

Is there a picture on this wonderful thread that shows how one secures their FE with the plastic zipties to the metal Fish?

Somewhere there is a pic...I thought it was around page 35, but I guess I was wrong, as I didn't see it.... But here are some written answers. It is my understanding that the zip tie helps secure a loop over the fish. Kinda like a bolo tie.

HTH.

One other little tip...don't pull the tie too tight against the fish, it will make it *really* hard to get it cut off. We left ours with about 1" clearance and it worked just fine. Saved our FE from walking away!!!

Oh and one more tip, if you make your own FE, make sure to use hot glue or superglue to secure the sring you hand it with to the bar the FE hangs from, if the string is just tied to the bar someone could easily untie it.

I posted the same question a few weeks back and someone was nice enough to let me know.

I got some at Walmart before our cruise on the 16th (which by the way was WONDERFUL!) They're very inexpensive. I think there were 18 or 20 in the pack for less than $2. They were in the automotive section.

I ended up not using one on our fish extender. No one bothered it, except that we did "lose" the letter R on it! Go figure. It was no where to be found on it, in the pockets of the FE or on the floor. Luckily I brought some extra letters with me just in case and it was easily fixed.

I did, however, find that the zip ties were perfect for locking our luggage!

Here's a pic of one....

Yes, that is probably Tiffany's great work you have seen!

With the zip tie, we threaded the it through the string that hangs the FE and then around the base of the fish, securing it there. Be sure not to pull the tie too tight when securing it , or else you will have a lot of trouble cutting it off in the end. We left about 2" slack. Also, if the FE you buy doesn't have it, make sure you use a little bit of hot glue or super glue where the string it hangs from or connects to the dowel, as if it is unglued, a good yank by someone walking by will detach the string at the dowel, making the zip tie useless.

Hope that helps!!
Have a wonderful cruise!!
