          Don,
          I saw the posting for the Sanibel monofiliment clean-up and just
          wanted to let you know that I am planning on being there. This will
          be my first time doing something like this (however, I do try to get
          as much off the mangroves,etc as I can when I kayak). Should I bring
          gloves, bags, etc.? Thanks. Jackie (jacpaddles)

          Hi Jackie -
          When I did the "Monofilament Madness" at St. James City, I wore
          gloves, and also had a large heavy-duty trash bag, along with some
          rope. If you happen to have one of those extended pick-up tools, or
          an old broomstick with a nail sticking out of it, or even a hook on
          the end, you might find that useful too. A knife is essential.
          You'll need the gloves, because pulling the fishing line out of the
          mangroves, the line can cut through your skin. I used rope to tow my
          trash bag behind me, when we did the Key Largo cleanup a while back -
          the bag got to be too full to stay on top of my kayak. The stick with
          a nail can be handy for getting aluminum cans or plastic bottles off
          of the bottom (you'll probably want something like a cork to cover the
          end of the nail for safety), and if you have a hook on one end, that
          can be useful for pulling down lines that are too high to reach.
          Often, you may find old crab traps that are tangled up in the
          mangroves, and it's hard to get the lines free if you can't cut them.
          If you have a knife with a sheath, like a dive knife, that is very handy.
          Now that I've said all of this, I hate to say it, but I won't be
          making it to Sanibel for the cleanup. Brenda and I have been planning
          a trip to the keys for a while - should be fun. I hope you have fun
          too! It's always good to get out on the water, and especially when
          you are doing something good for the environment!
          Don
