ryan,

next time you're deckhanding or just hand landing lots of salmon, try wearing latex gloves (like the doctors wear). they can be found at most pharmacies. i know they work wonders for the cuts one can get from plain mono... but if they don't work with the spectra, try the orange filleting gloves when landing fish... i've used both landing loads of coho, and while both work, you can tie knots, cut baits, rig baits with the latex gloves but not the heavier gloves.

line cuts suck, especially with an infusion of saltwater.
