i used to use a empty toilet roll cardboard bit , stab the hook through and winded the line round and stick the end with tape but soon and it got damp it turns into a right mess .

Great idea Rabbi
I've been trying to find something to put my used rigs into, as you will know after using 2 rods and trying different tactics with pullys / flappers / clipped up / clipped down,

I sometime end up with half a dozen used rigs tangled up to the max in my cooler box and instead of wasting time untangling them I just cut the bits I can reuse and dump the rest,

But now you got me thinking that one of these will sort my problem as I can put the rig on it and run it under the tap when I get home and a spray of WD40 might give them a new lease of life,

I must make a couple up,

Thanks for the idea, B-)

mine will be made by man for mann, :D
