Storage for pike fly leaders


Recommended Posts

Been looking for something to store around 6 leaders whilst fishing, each around 6' long.

 

Finding it a hard to find something compact for slipping into a waistcoat pocket; also has to be fumble-free, since I use the float tube a fair bit. Any suggestions?

I have these already for coarse fishing but the problem is they're too big - what do trout anglers use? Everything I see in the shops is either too bulky or not designed so that you can remove an individual leader easily.

 

I'm looking for some kind of winder, but Im now wondering if plastic wallets may be the solution, as they take up minimal space.

I have seen Pipe Lagging used, just wind the leader around the lagging and secure with a cut off paper clip or similar.

Pole rig winders? Can you join then end to end and wrap them round a single winder?

 

Or get hold of some small plastic ziplock bags and put one in each, coiled up? That's how I buy tapered leaders for trout.

Nice ideas Steve but ease-of-use is also key since I'll be in the float tube a fair bit - I think on balance a small plastic rig wallet may be the best option.

My trout leaders are all in a small rig wallet designed specifically for the job its a bit like a small sea rig wallet and is made by Lureflash (I think it came free with a set of tapered leaders from Yorkshire Game Angling).

After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead.
