I have a review on my blog, but I don't want you guys to think I'm just blog pimpin' here.

So, I'll just direct you straight to the website: www.GrassHopperProducts.com


I recently bought a "monoMASTER" and IMHO it's the best new flyfishing gadget in at least 20 years. It works exactly as described, is cheap to buy and would probably save many hundreds of yards of line snippets and tag ends from ending up in the water - or almost as bad - inside your vest or chest-pack where it tangles with your other gear and causes frustration when you reach in to get something.

Byron, if you guys don't carry these little guys, it would be a great addition to the tools section at LRO. The company is headquartered near me here in North GA and the owner is a stand up guy who not only solved a problem for me with the waste line in my vest, but is going to help people more easily keep the rivers and lakes clean with this little innovation. I read somewhere that it's been around for a couple of years now, but I just discovered it and haven't seen it in stores (or mentioned on fishing sites/blogs) until very recently.

Anyway, just a heads up to everyone. It works as good as they say it does and could make your favorite river (and your fishing vest) a little cleaner if we can just get folks to buy and use them.

I'm pretty sure LRO carries those. I've got one in my vest pocket and I'd be willing to bet I got it there.

I just put trash in my pocket then drop it in the next trash container I come to.

Owl,
It is a great gadget. It works great for waste leader and tippet material. We sell them on the online catalog and in the store. http://littleriveroutfitters.com/store/product.php?productid=18242&cat=0&page=1 (http://littleriveroutfitters.com/forum/../store/product.php?productid=18242&cat=0&page=1)

It doesn't do so well with other kinds of trash. For that, a pocket or the Fishpond Piopod (http://littleriveroutfitters.com/store/product.php?productid=18323) is a the deal.

The Monomaster is definitely an innovative and handy addition to the vest.
