I posted the following message on the "Captain Downriggins" Saltwater Salmon forum last evening. With all of the charter skippers posting on here on the Alaska Outdoors Forums I thought I would see what ideas anyone has to keep their tied leaders from getting tangled or scattered all over the galley table.
"I am looking for a better method of storing my tied salmon leaders. I've tried keeping them in Zip-lock baggies, hooking and wrapping them on pipe insuilation (and foam swimming tubes) and haven't been very happy with anything I've tried so far. Just as many others do - I like to tie-up both herring leaders and hootchie leaders ahead of time.
Before I start putting together a system of spools on a modified paper towel dispenser for my Trophy, I thought I would ask and see if anyone had a go-to method that keeps their 6-foot herring leaders under control. Thanks in advance. "
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
