Making Bobber Stops

5 posts in this topic

I came across the bobber stop making tool (without instructions or supplies) in some of my grandfathers stuff after his passing.

Here is my question, what type of line/thread do you use when tying bobber stops?

Thanks

i have been using the line that came on my windlass tip up. it was way to weak, and it was breaking on the hookset. so i wound it on a spool,and replaced it with 30lb braided nylon. and i use the old line for slip bobber knots. it is great, very easy to work with (i dont use a tool) but holds a good strong knot, that is pretty small. perfect for open water float fishing. so ur line doesnt catch the stop and completely ruin ur cast.

tight lines

The braid dude as backing for fly reels works great. Plus colors can standout well.

A spool of dental floss goes a long way's.

I dont think I have ever used one up. I have a spool in my Ice fishing box, and my open water bag. Other than bobber stops, it can be used to pull hooks out of your hands, or arms wink , using the "push pull" method. And if you are really hosed, it can stitch you up. Or you can reatach a skirt, or.......

Oh ya, the bobber stop thing. Loop, twist (4), tighten, and trim.
