Question Straps for fins?

Hello,
I'm a cold water spearo (N of Scotland) and I find my foot pockets are tight at start of a session, but as my feet shrink, they become dangerously loose. Any tips for attaching straps? Don't want to horse in and start cutting and glueing if there is some smart solution used by old hands...

Google 'fin keepers'. Most stores should have them. Or you could try to improvise something from an old dive sock by cutting the toes of it and wearing it over the fin.

Brilliant - I almost never meet any other spearos to swap tips with, and I knew a solution must exist. After 30 seconds on Amazon: Cressi - £18.
Can't thank you enough (lost a chance at a MASSIVE fish last year when a fin came off as I turned).

18 pounds? That sounds horribly overpriced. €6-7 in euro webshops.

I daresay. I have heard scare stories about additional charges from carriers - after the sale - for European purchases, so I just coughed up. Perhaps, one day, Brexit will deliver a benefit of some kind...
