On my recent trip to AK for King salmon, I had a problem with my sink tip line. After a couple of days the outer coating split at the hinge where the sink tip began. It would hang up going out through the guides. Okay so here I am miles from the nearest fly shop with a bum line!:eek What to do?
Well, you guessed it, I carefully wrapped duct tape exactly one time around the line with no overlap. It worked fine for the next 5 days and I landed around 9 Kings using it!
