Got my spools today in the mail. AWESOME! They are just the trick for storing line. Thanks Daniel for adding a great item to the line of Tenkara Gear. Even without a hook the tippet stores easily and holds fast.

My Tenkara Rods:
13' Ayu, 12' Yamame, 11' with a conversion handle, and an Ito.

My Wife's Tenkara Rods:
12' Ebisu and 13.5' Amago, 12' Iwana with a conversion handle, and an Ito.

I use the Orvis Dropper Rig Fly Box for my line. A set of 5 with a storage box is relatively inexpensive. They hold your flies and line neatly in a box when not in use. Therefore, I can leave my fly on the line and just store it with the line and the box keeps everything in order. I use a few tapered and level lines so having a few of these is convenient.

It's similar in design to some of the home made ones I've seen here.

I keep my line attached to my rod. I hold my rod like Rambo is holding his AK 47 and wrap the line around my camo bandana. Wish I could figure out a way to keep the hook from sticking in my forehead....

Interesting visual.

Well, the 'visual' isn't exactly honest...I have a beard.

I'd like to add to my previous post about using the Orvis Dropper Rig Holder. Yesterday I was out fishing. When I got back to my truck, I put the rod in it's tube with the line still attached and placed the holder in the tube with rod. It fits nicely. Now, I wasn't using the rod sock, so I don't know if you can squeeze it all in there with the sock. I usually have the tube sticking out of my gear bag and just put the rod in without the plug and leave the tube open to allow for drying. Plus, then it's always in my gear bag.

The nice thing about it fitting in the tube is that it's all there and ready to go. Especially if you take it backpacking or on your bike.

I have that Orvis one too. It's been nice - I usually remove one of the dropper holders and have it in my little shoulder bag as that whole Orvis box is HEAVY - but it's a cool system - especially for carrying pre-rigged dropper setups.

But, I also ordered the Tenkara one with my first rod, the I guess I'll have both to try out. To be honest, I didn't think about the stuff I already had. but it's cool how the blue "wheel" slips over the rod blank for carrying around.

Does anybody know what happened to the line holders? I can no longer find them on the site.
