New Tool for my Patrol Bag
Updated: Jul 20, 2020
My arms are never long enough when I want to snag a plant in the water so today I brought along this grab stick that I had sitting in the house. It worked great so I'm bringing it on all my future patrols.
As noted by Maria in her comment below, it is always important when collecting a sample to be careful and get a clean cut - you don't want numerous small pieces breaking off. If it is an invasive species you could inadvertently help it to spread.
