Hold the Line


When salt water flyfishing, I like to have plenty of line stripped off my reel in preparation for the cast. But when moving from spot to spot, it's annoying to have to crank line back on the reel over and over again. To avoid this, I simply coil the line I have out and fasten it to my rod handle with a small strip of hook-and-loop fastener. By the time I reach the next spot, I just remove the strip and I'm ready to cast to the big one.
