This is great tip for storing your live bait sailfish leaders.
- Drill holes every one inch around the bottom of the Yo-Yo Hand Reel.
- Take the hook from your first leader and run it through one of the holes.
- Coil the first leader around the coiler.
- When you come to the Perfection Loop on the end of the first leader, take the hook from the second leader and run it through the Perfection Loop.
- Then take the hook from the second leader (with the Perfection Loop from the first leader) and run it through one of the empty holes.
- Coil the second leader around the coiler.
- Repeat steps 4 through 6 with as many leaders as you want.
- Run the Perfection Loop from the last leader through one of the empty holes.
- Take a marker and write what length and weight leader is on the coiler, along with the size hook.
