November 2013: Plug Husbandry for Electric Fishing Electrodes




The photo shows plugs which have been cleaned on the left at the front of the photo as well as a closeup of dirty plugs to the right. At the back on the radiator are many plugs which have been through the washing machine and are drying out before re attachment to the cables.
