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.
