Same colour as boats, with a bit of hammered copper on oar tips (leading edges) handles coloured to match boats, if you match them, that is!From a fishing viewpoint and also aesthetically.
I have 7 pairs of somewhat scabby looking oars to titivate before next season.
Should they just be varnished wood or painted and should they have red tips or does that frighten the fish?
I know some unskilled boat fishers never pick up an oar from one season to the next relying instead on outboards (both petrol and electric) but there are still some of us keeping the art of rowing alive.
It would be fair to say I'm at a bit of a loose end this morning!
