OLD FISHIN' TIPSTER'S
TIPS AND TRICKS


Got a question about fishing, that you have never been able to figure out?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.


Old Tipster always thought that "if you ain't tangled up. You obviously ain't fishin' " . My stack of rods for all occasions and holidays usually looks like the monofilament recycle bin at Stinky Harry's Sporting Goods. I used to spend 1 hour fishin' and 3 hours untanglin' my stuff (if you know what I mean). Then, Keith Mayberry probably got tied of too much work and not enough fishin', so he figured out this time and aggravation saver.

"Often we carry several rods in a bundle bundled together when we are in the boat, or when we go from the vehicle to the boat and vice versa. To help keep the lines on your rods from tangling one to another, try this tip.

Once you have the line parallel to the rod and the hook secured in the keeper, take the loose outside line near the middle rod guide and wrap it around your rod twice, and then hook it over the middle guide. This causes the line to be wrapped tight against the rod instead of hanging loose to catch on the eyes of other rods. When your are ready to fish, pick up a rod, release the line from the guide and you are ready to go. Quick, simple and it becomes as natural as flipping the bail by hand on a spinning reel to cut down on line twist.

Keith, aka The Desert Rat"

A common question that we get: "Is there somewhere close to get bait and tackle?" This is where we get our bait.
