How do you dispose of unwanted leader material? Would you like to see more bins around fisheries?
Mike Taylor – Why? Just means someone else has to clean up and empty the bins! Also a risk to wildlife if stuff falls out the bin. Take your rubbish home! Dean Shilton – I use an old film canister and put it in there until I get home and then put it either on the log burner, or cut it up into tiny pieces over the wheelie bin. Not that it’s easy to get any film canisters these days! Scott Robertson – I wouldn’t use bins unless they have a lid on. Birds and squirrels will raid the bins and get tangled in all the line. Take used leader home and dispose of it. Ralph Cooper – I always carry those little zip-lock bags you get hook, flies etc in (about 3x2 inches). I screw the leader up and put it in the bag, take it home and put it on the fire. Dave Thomas – Orvis do a brilliant leader tool which you wind your old tippet on and then dispose of safely when you get home. Rhys Llewellyn – We put offcuts of rainwater downpipe in the ground at the club I co-run and encourage members to discard their leader in them. Barry Robertson – I would need a skip to dispose of all my tangles.
