What does everyone use for line storage on lines they aren't currently using? I'm packing up some lines for the winter and would like to know everyones input.

line storage.

I just make sure their well dressed and reel them LOOSELY on a spool or better yet hang them.

I'm a tackle tart so I make sure I have a reel for every line :) Ok, I try to do that but in some cases I have to resort to putting them back on the plastic spools they came on. I don't do anything special other than make sure they are dry.

Wind them on a line winder (Wrapid Winder, Angler's Image, ect) tip first, tie them with 2 pieces of pipe cleaner, PUT A DESIGNATION TAG ON, stick it all in a quart plastic baggie. They will be in about an 8" coil, nice and flat. I leave a couple inches of backing attached to the running line so it is easy to find. I know a lot of "line whores" and this is how all of them store the lines.

I am with MJC on this one. My line winder is one of the best aquisitions I have made in the last 5 years! I don't know how I managed all those years without one. It is fast, easy and not having to deal with plastic spools that pop apart at inopportune times is a joy. Perhaps the best endorsement is that since I have started using my line winder all of my more frequent fishing buddies have got one for themselves :smokin:

That's exactly what this 'Line Whore' does :smokin:

I have a love/hate thing with my old Struble travel winder,,,, It's kind of a rickety rig, but it does the job. It goes where I go, always. I keep thinking some day I'd like to buy or build a nice sturdy rig for home use.
cheers,
