Here's one of those little things I picked up on years ago.  To tell you the truth it was so long ago I'm not sure where I saw it in use the first time.  At one time it was common to see my all time favorite tool in use in many Mom & Pop fish stores.  While I use a collapsible 3 step ladder here and there, it just seems not worth the effort in many situations.

Not a day goes by in which I don't rely on my low tech device.  I’m not sure I would know how to function in a fishroom without one.  If you are able to locate the real thing and not a thin, decorator model offered for sale in stores today, better give it a try as they seem harder and harder to come by these days.

So by far the most indispensable tool in my fishroom has always been an inverted plastic milk crate with a piece of wood secured to the bottom.  It is easily kicked around the room to where needed.   Perfect device to stand on and reach higher tanks.   Even better to sit on while pretending to work on lower tiers.


  I’ll bet you’ll find it hard to do without in the future
