Power Gum

Here's another useful little item to tuck away in your rucker - a spool of Power Gum. I always start out with a couple of rig stops to set the depth on my float rods, but they don't last forever.

Sooner or later, they start to slip - even if you use two and moisten the braid before you move them.  Then they fall off, which is where the Power Gum comes in. It's great for tying stop knots, mainly because you don't have to break the rig down, slide on the rig stops, re-tackle the rod etc.

Sooner or later, I'll probably dump rig stops and just use Power Gum all the time. Leave a bit of a tag on the stop-knot and it goes through the rings easier than if you trim them down to a stub, which tends to catch.
