New Fishing Tool For 2008 season

Postby Blaze » Fri May 16, 2008 4:41 pm


An Innovative and Novel Storage Device for Handling Waste Monofilament

What lasts longer, Empires, buildings or monofilament? Monofilament, probably. It lasts up to six hundred years. So what happens when we have a wind knot or tangle and have to change tippet or a leader? We stuff the discarded line into our vest pocket, and later find it stuck in our zipper or wrapped around our knot tyer or hook sharpener-if we’re lucky. If not? We reach into our pocket and accidentally pull the line out and drop it into the water or onto the bank where it eventually ends up wrapped around a bush, a heron or a trout.
We at Grasshopper Outdoor Products are active members of TGF, TU and FFF and as conscientious anglers, we are intimately committed to avoiding any personal contribution to the deterioration of trout habitat, which includes polluting with waste monofilament. To this end we are offering the monoMASTER, which is a small, light-weight new tool that can be attached to a fishing vest or stored in a pocket or tackle box and used to conveniently store all waste mono generated while fishing. "Anything that reduces pollution is essential in our time, but a device that does it with such ease and enjoyment is a downright miracle. MonoMASTER is a 'must-have" for every serious angler" (Richard Friedenberg - screenwriter, "A River Runs Through It").
Waste mono dropped onto the bank is routinely picked up by conscientious anglers, but this isn’t always effective. Despite all our efforts we are not able to do much about the tangles of waste line accumulating under the water line to the detriment of wildlife habitat and water management efforts. This mono continues to accumulate over generations and, with over 40 Million anglers on US streams, every inch of waste mono matters. "Those of us in the Federation of Fly Fishers who have had the opportunity to examine the monoMaster agree that it's a "must" for every fly fisher person's vest." (Ron Cordes, PhD, JD - Chairman of the Board of Directors, Federation of Fly Fishers). The monoMASTER is now available in Orvis stores nationwide and from www.grasshopperproducts.com.
