    The best buoys I have seen are made from an old soda bottle, some fishing line, and a sinker. To make one, tie the line around the neck of the bottle and wrap the line around the wider part. Use as much line as you think you will ever need. When you find yourself in say 15 ft. of water and don’t need the whole length, simply measure out about as much as you think you will need. Your armspan is equal to your height, so it will be 5-6 feet (unless you are a midget, in which case, I apologize for calling you a midget). Once you have your length of line played out, simply unscrew the cap on the bottle and insert your line, then tighten the cap down on the line. This way, you can adjust to whatever length you need, and you never have more line out than necessary.
