Very simple, very useful. I like it.

In one of the Tsurimaga tenkara videos on YouTube, he has a line spool that fits over the butt cap of his rod, but your solution would be easier to make.

Over the weekend, I was using a tippet spool to hold the line. The larger windings on this setup would speed things up A LOT! If I can find the time, I will try to make one the same length as the handle on my Yamame. That would cut down on the spooling/unspooling time significantly over the tippet spool I was using this last weekend every time I had to hike through some brush or trees to get to the next fishing spot.

Ronald,
I really like your winder. What is the foam material you chose?

I made a similar line winder from the sole of a single Flip Flop that I found stream side. The price was right. I used a box cutter to cut a strip out of the sole and added some notches. I thought the sole was too thick so I used the box cutter to split the strip down the middle and ended up with two line winders.

Just a word of warning to all. I you cut up a foam paper plate and use it as a winder be very careful that your wife does not throw it away after a picnic. :( Yep, leader and all went into the trash.

Sorry to hear that! She must have felt bad about doing that. But you have the excuse to buy another two. Just in case it happens again by mistake, you'll have a backup! :lol: ;)
