General Discussion / Re: Straightening 80 lb test mono?

Joe....
That is exactly what the device does that I mentioned. I have also used my fingers.  In lighter weight material I usually just stretch it.

A lead eye might be an interesting alteration.

Do you really think Puck owns a hair dryer?  ;D

He can borrow from Nilo.

They make a device to straighten mono. Basicly a piece of rubber that you drag it thru under tension.  Never tried it on anything that heave. FTU should have them for sale.
I agree with Joe.

I would think the relocation of the pivot point ( eye ) would give it a different action. Especially needed in deep pools. The clouser was designed to imitate a minnow in a school, more or less. Shallow running and swimming.

In some of the rocky rivers, the pools of water are narrow and deep. Your rod will nearly reach acorss.  You will be jigging in a sense.

Isn't that a jig hook?

Plug 'mov2flv' into google and see what you come up with.

I have a bunch of conversion programs but all are script based that run on my linux OS.

Matt.....
Could you post websites for these projects. I would like to go to the 2 high schools here in Magnolia and see if they are interested in this project. I can look after them as one is 5 miles away and the othe about 10.
