Bobber stops: an off-season DIY tackle project

If there’s one thing the Green Movement has right, it’s “reuse, reduce, recycle.” But in some ways, many anglers have been living by this slogan for decades.
Years ago, I discovered a great way to re-purpose old, spent braided line and build my own easy, cheap, (and green!) bobber stops. For anglers who fish with slipfloat rigs for catfish, panfish, and walleyes, it’s a trick that can save time and a little bit of money – a perfect winter workbench project.
