View Full Version : What do you all use for a fishing towel? Something to clip on belt...

I'm looking for a fishing towel to clip on my belt. At one time I had one that folded up and velcroed and it would clip on my belt. I think it was made by renegade... It was great for me when I was bank fishing... What do you guys use?

Old bath towels from the house. Try to always have a few on board.

My T shirt, shorts anything but my hat really. Also got some unscented soap on board for real nasty critters.

Check the paint department at your local Walmart. They sell small white handtowels in bundles of 18 for around $8, the best I remember. At those prices if they start to get too rank, I just toss them rather then clean them.

I cut up old bath towels, and tie them around my seats in the boat around where they fold down. Its always within reach.

Microfiber towels from Sams or Home depot. I have several 18 packs using to dry the vehicles, wax the vehicle and boat, clean house windows, clean inside the house. I use a metal shower ring and push through the towel attach to your belt or I attach to the live well and spider rig holders. They are great and when dirty throw them in the washer with some oxy clean, wash and dry in the dryer and you are back in business. They are great to wipe the face when fishing, mowing the grass or doing anything outside.

I use hand towels and have enough for everyone on board the boat. We keep one by the measure board to wipe hands after you measure the fish. I just throw in the washer and dryer and replace them when they get too nasty. EB

Old bath towels cut down to size. Keep locker full of them. Shower ring clip. Toss em in the washer when dirty. They blow out ain't lost anything.

Old bath towels usually.

But i usually forget to bring them, so i use my shirt or pants, or sometimes i wash them off in the water. I just remember to wash my hands before i eat anything.

85464I got a washer and drilled a hole in it, mounted it to the top of my rod holder and put a UK golf towel on it, works great.

Either my jeans or i buy a pack of those bright colored cheap hand towels from wally world and toss them in the garbage if they get nasty.

I get the old towels and wash cloths from work. They throw them in the bad bin after they wash them and inspect.

We can get a pack of 6-8 kitchen hand towels for $5 at our local Dollar General store. I keep several on the boat and wash them. I got some of those plastic handi clips at Lowes or Menards and they work well to hold them on my Hi-teks front and back...

If you ever stay at a motel, ask the maids if they have any old towels or rags. They usually have a bunch and appreciate it rather than stealing their good ones! Lol

I just use a old hand towel and hang it on the back of my seat and when I fold it down to run the towel will ride fine. If you want a real fishing towel with clip here is some...
