    Thanks all. Those Grey's keepers are like what I have; now that I see them they have a sliding ring closure, not velcro. I don't think Cabela's offers them any more but I can pick some up...

    Line keepers for spare spools

    I have some nifty little cloth strips with velcro closers that wrap around my spare spools to keep the line from coming off the spool when not in use. I got them at Cabela's but it doesn't appear...

    I have some of the ones Orvis sold; I don't know if they're still available from them. I seldom use them as I found them to be rather heavy and a determent to casting; these might work better.

    There were some carp trolling around where I was bluegill fishing last night. I was fishing my 2wt and was afraid I'd actually hook one after all the times I've gotten skunked using a proper rod, so...

    You could post on the winston forum, but do it quick; it's going off line on 9/15 and changing to facebook. It's an older Winston and I'm no expert; I'd say the value is $250-300.
