I always start with this amazing dream of having infinite pretieds so i can get to the river and just fish forever without wasting so much time. Then someone busts out the catn and 15 minutes later i loose all track of what i was doing, and end up sleeping on my fishing gear! Then on the river when im re-tieing im like DAMNIT, wish i would have just tied up some leaders!

At the time I have about 500 singles and 100 doubles. Not enough considering we blow thru around a hundred a day some days when were fishin them woody little rivers like the Nooch. :cry: If you want and your bored you can tie me some.

I'm tying leaders tonight, and have been for about a week...usually by the start of February I like to have about 150 leaders, plus another 250 or 300 worms strung up...I got a bit of a late start this year, though, and I'm at about 100 leaders and 200 worms right now...I hope to finish off the other 50 or so leaders before 10pm tonight, and then tie up the remaining 50 leaders for worms, which I'll get strung up tomorrow and next weekend...I'll be fishing Tues-Fri :)

Fish on...

I tied 18 rolls of doubles with 26 to a roll and I am down to eight. Hopefully will make another 2 months. We were going through 1-2 a day on the cowlits earlier.

I have about 10 maybe 20. I was thinking I should do it tonight since I was I want to fish tomorrow and the size and colors I need I don't have. I only need about five - ten because I would fish before work and there haven't been that many snags.

I’ve got about a dozen Octopus hooks with bait loops, about a dozen drift rigs, and a ton of jigs with leaders already tied.

i pretie the night before a trip. Normally between 15-25. If I do use them all I save them for the next trip. If I run out, well it only happened once, and that was becuz my bonehead friend left them at my house...

would be smart to tie a couple hundred and not have to worry

I don't even like having to tie the several hundred I string up for myself each winter...I can't bear the thought of having to do it for everyone who fished with me for the entire winter! 'Course, it might be a little different if I were getting paid :)

I'd have someone tie mine for me if I wasn't so anal about it...enough things go wrong to help you lose fish during the year, the last thing I want to go wrong is someone else's knot! At least I know who to blame it one if one of mine fails :(

Fish on...

About 30 I would guess. Strangely, I actually enjoy tying leaders. :eek: I don't get a chance to fish enough to use to warrant tying more than that at one time. :cry:
