RE:Rio line winders
My cat, or should I say my wife's cat, eats any fly lines in sight. I once built a hybrid loop system and went to sleep to let the glue dry. When I woke up the line was in shreds on the floor. I had to hang around until the flyshop opened. On my way out I realized I had no cash. My wife was at a tea and crumpets thing with the ladies but I was bent on fishing so I stomped in there with my fleece wader liners and a scruffy turtleneck to get a check so I could get a new line (she had a no credit-card rule going back then). She saw me coming in and said "oh - my - GOD! Here's a check... now go, GO!"
Built the new loops at the Seattle store, chatting with Les Johnson and Mike Kinney. Too bad the store is no longer!
