You know, most of us carry multiple spools of line in the boat. We’re always changing our leader, often we get stuck on the bottom, you got to put a new leader on. Or you might want to increase from 6 to 8 to 10 and you want to switch over to fluorocarbon from mono.
We’ve all got these in our boat and the problem if you got a dozen of these, is the trailing ends of line. And their just a pain in the butt, they get tangled with each other, they get tangled with a whole bunch of other things in the boat.
And for sure you can put elastic bands around them. I’m going to show you a better way and I call it sock-it-to-me. What I do, is simply take an old sock, and I cut the ankle part of the sock off. I take my spool of line and I simply put it inside the sock. And there I go, I know that’s 6lb test. I can throw it anywhere. I’ve got all my spools socked away this way. So simple. Great storage idea.
