    A cheap Do It Yourself DRIFT-SOCK that works!

    A cheap drift sock... do it yourself and save!
    This is a horse feed-bag from Mills Fleet Farm... with a few innovations added. My own creation here! The bag floats because I glued a minno-bucket lid in the opening. Opens right up and tracks straight... works GREAT. And only cost me $15.00. I added only rope & snap-hooks and no other weights.
