STRAIGHTEN A LIGHT-TACKLE MONO LEADER
Maintaining control over a bait or lure is fundamental to success, and slack in your line often means missed clues or missed strikes. Eliminating coils in mono leaders is a quick ticket to better control.
Heat It Up
Heat combined with stretching straightens mono, but too much heat weakens the line. To safely straighten a leader, hold one end tight and make a fist around the line with the other hand. Squeeze tightly and slide that hand steadily down the length of the leader, stretching and heating it. Your own pain threshold will prevent you from overheating the mono.
