Materials Needed 1 X empty 2 or 3 Litre Ice cream Container......30cm Black Velcro

Small Tube of contact adhesive..................Some Black paint


Cut the Velcro into two 15 cm strips and glue the two smooth sides onto the front of your waders 5cm ether side of the center front the two strips should be Vertical.

Roughen one side of Ice cream container with some sandpaper (or the back door steps) and glue the other two pieces of Velcro vertically onto the container. Finally drill a few holes in the bottom of the container for drainage and spray paint with black paint for camouflage.
