OK the sliced noodles dont work so well due them not being very durable, If you have to drag the rope at all alond the pond edge and you have any brush or stick or anything that would snag them the tear right off. I havent gotten around to the ties yet, just a few here and there maybe 30 or so, seem to really need the ties with the floats on as it seems that I am losing more leaves before the floats and ties but then again I left the rope in the water overnight in hopes to have them all coraled, I had a huge amount trapped but when I went to pull them in I lost a bunch over the rope I guess, so for now I will just run it out when I have the time to complete the process

A little snow, Please!
