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.
