pcray, be carefull leaving fly on tip top while in case. I did that several times when moving from one site to another. Untill the fly snaggged the inside of the tube. Luckily it only broke about 3/4 of an inch off of the tip top of my 5wt TFO. An easy fix with some hot glue.

Not telling you what to do. Just saying.

I've gotten a handful stuck to the inside of the tube. Never broke a rod, though. Well, at least, not that way. :)

Put a little zipcast on it and stretch it. I bet it'll work.

I didn't have any tippet on it because it was a new leader!!!! Thanks!!! everyone!


Actually you do. A new out of the pack extruded leader has 50% butt, 25% body and 25% or so of tippet. Thus when you buy a 9ft 5x leader, you have about 2 feet of tippet built into the leader. You want to add tippet before you start getting into the body of the leader.

Penn makes a rod and reel cleaner which I use on my salt water tackle.I see no reason that this would not be good on fresh water gear as well,Makes the rods shine and likewise the reels look great.I'm sure other compaNIES MAKE SIMiLAR PRODUCTS.GG
