Imagine it’s the dead of winter and you’re not going to be using your topwater rods for a few months. Instead of clipping your lures to your reels and stuffing them in the corner of your garage, you can use these Line Clips instead.
Here’s why I say that: If you leave your lures clipped to the reel for a while, it creates a crimp in your line where the line leaves the rod tip. This creates a weak spot that requires retying. Sure, retying a lure doesn’t take too long, but now you’re not wasting six feet of crimped, unusable line every time you re-rig your rods.
