  1. Default What to do with still good leaders?

    I've been fishing bass/blue gill on a 7ft 4x leader, and i'm about to go trout fishing sat. I want to use a 9ft 6x leader. My 4x is still in good condition, only one tippet application. What would you suggest I use to hold my 4x while i'm fishing my 6x since i'll want my 4x back on after saturday. I was thinking of some kind of spool.. i don't want tangles

    Hey gregorykicks,
    I use a leader wallet which is about the same thing as a dollar store CD case with the plastic sleeves. Although, the leader wallet is more to the size that you would what to carry but the CD case would work as well.

    Hope this helps.
    Later,
    Terry

    Its super simple, tie 6x tippet onto that 4x leader. If you want the whole deal to settle to the water delicately like a 9' 6x leader would, make it 10' long. The stiffer 4x section will make that unroll like a 9' 6x leader would.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    you're right cliff.. that'd be almost just like tying my own leader with decending line size..
    Thanks!
