RE: ICE FISHING SAFETY THROW ROPE
That looks good.
I carry an old ski rope with me. The handle is something for the victim to hang on to, they float and the added weight aids in throwing it too. Connect a clip on you end, so you can wrap it around your waiste then clip it, you won't be able to losse it that way. Plus I tied several knots in my end, much easirer to get a good grip on it and hang on. A smooth rope can slip through wet gloves, the knot helps you hang on. Thank God I've never had to use it, but if I ever do I confident it should work well.
