    Default Mono.

    To Day I visited a small pond in Modoc County California. When I started fishing I noticed a song bird in the tree close to my spot. Upon checking I found the poor bird was dead. It was all tangled up in mono. What a way to go.

    Please make an effort to pick up mono left by others


    Thanks

    Horrible.

    I found a dead pilchard on a hook dangling in the mangroves followed by a mile of line. Fortunately, I found it before a bird did.

    Some just don't know any better.

    For those who fish with me: this is just one of the reasons you see me retrieving flies from trees. It may shut down the fishing for a little while, but it is the responsible thing to do.
    Separate your observations from your preconceptions. See what is, not what you expect.

    One morning on the Duck River in southern Tennessee I found a small bat tangled in fishing line left hanging in a tree. It was hanging just out of my reach and I thought I could hook the end of that branch and pull it down far enough to free the little guy, his body was about the size of my thumb!! That little bat grabbed my rod tip and hung on so hard I was able to get him/her down so I could untangle it and let it fly off.

    After having the stuff drop out of my pockets etc when trying to be a responsible angler I got a couple of these Monomasters- work great.
    There was a link somewhere on how to make your own with a piece of Velcro.

    Some of the areas I fish in California have PVC Fishing Line Recycling Stations contributed and installed by some local Boy Scout troops. I also have a few of the monomasters in my vest.
    Last year I was walking on a trail along the bank of South Fork Bishop Creek and got tangled up in a web of what appeared to be about 100 feet of 12 lb test mono. Dang near broke my knee on the rock I fell on.
    I blame it on laziness. Same people probably don't clean up after themselves at home. Jim
    I'm either going to, coming from or thinking about fishing. Jim
