Could those that don't use a bag post up their method with pics if possible.
I use a 60 foot retired throw bag for a bow and stern line. I lay it under my perimeter line. Reach through the bottom half of the loop and grab the top and pull it through. By being fairly careful and making a smaller loop that doesn't hang down it seems to be fairly safe. I can grab with one hand on the fly ( I have done this before ) and barely break stride.
Don't have pics of it, but it really does work well.
