So I was spooling up my LTJ reels with new Power Pro last night. After I pulled the old off the first reel I looked at it and thought..."I hate to throw that away, 50% of that is still in good shape".

So I went out to the ever growing pile of fishing STUFF in the garage and pulled out a few old spools of fly tying floss. Stuff that was way to thin for saltwater, so I cut it off. After finding the appropriate hardware (long bolt, washers, nut) I put it into my cordless drill and loaded the spools up with the old braid.

I'm thinking it will be great for use on bucktails and dropper fly's.

Great idea Eric!

I was going to suggest you to go to the beach in OC, find a fine looking 21 year old and have her wear a strand around her chest as a bikini top:clap:

All good suggestions, especially Tom's!

Bob, thought about that but I didn't have enough braid on the reels. While making long casts, especially at the cbbt, it would get snagged on the uni-uni knot connecting the mono backing. This time, there's just enough mono for the braid not to slip.

Eric, I don't use any backing either, just a few wraps of old fashion white adhesive tape.
