Leash plug side

Any discussion on shaping, designing, repairing and riding surfcraft of any type or shape. Also a good place to ask the 'what board should I buy?' question.

Leash plug side

Does it make much difference which side of the stringer a leash plug is put on a fish? I’m regular & some say left side but others say same side as the leg you have your leash on as you sit on a board.

Mine is on the stringer, so neither side is ok.

probably more likely to hang further away from you/the board/the fins if it's on the same side as the leg it's attached to, and as such be slightly less likely to catch on anything.
In reality it probably makes 0 difference

Toe side if it's a short fish. Putting it on the stringer on a fish can mean that it's right under your back foot due to the long split in the tail. Not too much of a problem when wearing booties, but can be annoying without. If it's longer then no problem as your foot will be further forward anyway.

I like everything about fish. It's a good idea to comment on top.
