Foam for pre-rigged leaders


If you’re going to be fishing a presentation that requires a leader, like a drop shot, Carolina rig or double Fluke rig, breaking off and re-rigging on the spot can get really old, really fast. Time is a valuable asset when you’re on the water, so you want to make the most of it. Pre-rigging leaders while you’re at home can really save you time on the water. The question then is how do you keep them nice and neat until you need them? I like to wrap mine around a piece of dense foam… something like a chunk off of a pool noodle will do nicely. This way the leaders don’t get damaged and they’re sitting there ready to tie on my main line at a moment’s notice.
