When I was fishing the other day I kept having to slide my feet back up into the pedal strap. It almost seems like it would be good to have a bottom strap on the pedal to help keep your feet on the pedals. Does anyone have any suggestions? I figure the answer will have something to do with shoes.

roadrunner I made me a pair kind of like what you made and I plan on tying them this Sunday if the lake thaws enough. I think I'm gonna like them. Thanks for the idea.

Well the lake was FROZE over and I'm in a BADDD mood. So I didn't get to try my new heel straps. I gotta wait another week. I made mine out of some urethane sheet material that I have. I believe it is going to work well. I'll report back if I ever get to use them.
