nesbit is on a distinguished road
Default Reel/Spool strap

I use a rubber band on my spare fly spools to hold my line and I would like something that is just as wide as the inside of my spool. I just wanted to know if there was a strap out there that I can use? If so what is the name and where can I find it?

Thanks

I find the easiest way for me is to just thread the last 2 inches of tippet in and out of the vent ports on the side of the reel. They rarely come off and it is one less thing to think about.

I use the green Velcro Plant Ties that's sold to tie up tomato plants.
Some supermarkets use a similar product to lash together bunches of veggies
The free stuff is good, the Velcro brand stuff lasts longer

. . . and I thought I was the only one who used these. They're great, because you can custom-cut them to length needed. And if you lose one, no big deal, because a roll's cheap and more than enough for a lifetime.

....plus you can use pieces to strap your rod sections together when you're not using a tube
