Tenkara Leader Holder


This idea is the "apple" of my eye. When I was cleaning out some old items, I came across this container and the DIY wheels began to turn. Without mentioning any names, mostly everyone knows this is for storing the ear buds for your cellphone. But the grooved recess and compact size is excellent for your furled leaders for your Tenkara rod, or any leader for that matter.


Take a shipping address label and cover the recesses where the ear buds are held. Trim the label flush to the sides of the container. You can write specifics about the leader here for easy identification.


Place the end of the leader down the middle and continue to wrap it around the outside groove. And voila, a leader holder that fits nicely in a shirt or vest pocket.
