It comes with a rubber band. Real helpful, let me tell you. What's the cool fishermen's trick that I don't know about yet?

At the end of the day, half of the mono is coiled off the spool.

The Shark Tooth tippet tender is the bees knees for handling Maxima craziness (the orange ones). It has a built in line cutter so you just rip off what you need and boom, done. I bought mine a couple of years ago at Outdoor Emporium and love 'em!

Sadly they don't appear to be available any more... hope they make a come back.

Thanks y'all. It sounded absurd, but I knew some of you would have good ideas.

Finally been steelhead fishing. Alas, nothing to mention.

If you take 2 seconds to make sure the rubber band cuts diagonally across the line before you put it back in your jacket, you'll have better results. Although, those linekeepers look pretty awesome.

Great idea, especially for the mylar spools.

Instead of an elastic band, I just use a bodkin heated, then poke two hole in the rim of the spool. Now just thread the mono out one hole and back in the other. Works a charm.
