It's a tiny little trashcan for your belt. It keeps all those bits of mono out of the river. In my case keeps them out of my waders (where I stuff them when fishing and find them in the socks at some point). In a pinch it should make a fine shot glass (not recommended by the mfg.). The Piopod from fishpond also just won Gray's Sporting Journal's best of 2010.
fishpond’s Piopod wins Gray’s Best for 2010 from Gray’s Sporting Journal January 4, 2010
(Silverthorne, Colo.) – fishpond <http://www.fishpondusa.com> , inc., creators of high quality fly-fishing products, has been awarded Gray’s Best for 2010 for the Piopod Microtrash Container. Chosen by Gray’s Sporting Journal editors, Gray’s Best selections highlight products that lend more quality, functionality and innovation to sportsmen.
“We are honored to receive Gray’s Best for 2010 for the Piopod (Pack It Out) Microtrash Container, says Dave Thompson, fishpond co-founder. We strongly believe in the ripple effect: the impact that environmentally conscious individuals can have leading to a lasting change, and the Piopod is a perfect product to facilitate this behavior.”
The Piopod is a small container with an elastomeric cap with gripper teeth to readily accept small bits of trash such as monofilament, spent flies or gum wrappers. It easily attaches to waders, vests or backpacks and is a no hassle accessory to bring along on any outdoor adventure.
The article detailing the Piopod and other Gray’s Best award winners can be found in Gray’s Sporting Journal 2010 Expeditions & Guide Annual issue on newsstands in late December.
