I do the same as Philster - I whip finish a loop in all my fly line ends and swap them out as needed via loop to loop connection to the backing- have so far not needed to do it in such a hurry (that must have been some fast job with a fish circling the boat!) and usually just rewind it back on the retail packaging spool. I use a pencil with big fat eraser heads at each end when migrating the line back to the reel - pop one of the erasers off and put the pencil in the spool hole and hold it between your feet.

One thing I did see, but have not tried, is you can put handles on each side of your retail line spool and turn it into a real cheap line winder...offset them from the center by 2" or so.
