  • UniGuy says     5 out of 5 flies
  • LOVE THE NEW TIES...once I figured out what to do with them...
  • Location/type of places I fish: Anywhere there is water, but my passion is for high mountain streams
  • So I picked these up at Angler's Covey in Colorado Springs where I buy my TUSA stuff that I don't buy online. I got them for the short ties and figured I would just keep the others in my bag until I needed them for something.

    I just maximized all 7! I use 2 of the short ties on my Iwana to hold line. I use the other short tie on my small-stream rod as a "lock" when I am keeping it rigged but collapsed. (I wrap the line around the tie a couple times before I wrap at the handle.) Works great. These are the best line ties I've found!

    But what to do with those others laying in my bag? I just did a long backpack into the Eagle's Nest Wilderness and came out wanting a better way to tie my rod and a water bottle to my pack shoulder straps. These are perfect!

    I use one red tie to stabilize the bottom of my wading staff on my pack when not in use, and the other to tie the handle of my rod on my shoulder strap. (I have a velcro loop that holds the top of the rod.)

    I researched DIY bottle holders, and realized the long ties are perfect for this! The top one goes around a grove in my water bottle (Gatorade bottles have these) and another grips the bottom. Solid. Because it's a squeeze bottle, I can reach it well enough to drink much of the water without removing the bottle. I can use the straw that came with my filter to drain it if I want.

    I don't take the bottle off much (though it's not hard at all), but can just refill it on my pack by squeezing my filter directly into it during a stop. Way simpler than messing with a hydration bladder in my pack, I've found.

    I can't wait to go field test it some more on a 4-day trip starting tomorrow!

    The only suggestion I would make is to include 4 rather than 3 short ties. I think usually people would use them in pairs.
