Leashes
« on: June 20, 2014, 05:48:59 AM »
Aloha all ,I have rigged leashes for stuff with poly twine, it tangles easily and the knots slip, wondering what other people are doing for this.

I use para cord with stainless steel clips.

Better to snag up once in a while than loose a pole & reel to the deep.

Same idea except use Weedtrimmer line instead of 300lb mono, little bit cheaper

I have a few Hobie Rod leashes like these:

I also use some regular 1/4" bungy cord from Windward Boats. I tied a loop to one end and tied a brass D-clip on the other.  Does not tangle at all.

Seems some people need to poke fun at people to feel better about themselves, I find that a sad state to be in.

What's your experience with 'yak fishing?  How are you tangling your leashes or tying knots that slip?

We used to use old phone cords with plastic zip ties to secure a loop at the end. Then carabiners to hook it.
It is very inexpensive and it works. We used it for our guns and things and I have personally gone overboard from a fast moving boat and didn't lose a thing.
I have also seen boogie board leashes for like $7 which look a little neater and will velcro around your rod and then clip in with a d-ring on the other end.

I am a beginner, I have been out  5 times, I have caught 11 rainbow runners, ranging from 3-6 pounds, just tying into opelu buoys, there is lots of wind and currents where I am, so I am playing it safe, used  chute last time, it didn't really slow me down enough. I suppose I should have introduced myself, any how I appreciate this forum, it is a great resource, as far as the knots, I was using 350 bottom line and some poly mix, with a perfection loop and a improved cinch and then attaching the loop to a ss clip on my yak. I am going to pick up some 300 pound mono and make my own leashes ( thanks to op). On the same note, I have been tying in my rigs with line, but with this new method how could I establish an anchor for my pole set up? I was thinking to drill a small hole at the base and form a loop with ss cable and a crimp, then I would have some where to clip my leash, I will post some pics, open to suggestions.

thanks alfisha, by the way, I picked up a new rig today and the people at the store advised me on how to secure my spinning rigs, basically just making a loop with bottom fishing line, wraping it around the stem of the reel, them tie your leash to that, no don't drill into your pole they told me. I will be making those leashes in the next few days and I will post some pics.
