When The Lights Go Out
By Rex Stahly

If you are like me, you always have at least one string of lights that gives up the Christmas ghost every year. The upside to this is a chance to collect more tying material.

What I do is strip the insulation back 4 or 5 inches, then cut off the wire with about half an inch of insulation left on. In 10 minutes you can have a collection of wire for when you sit down to tie up next season's PT nymphs.

The remaining insulation keeps the strands neatly bound together. In this string of lights, each section has about ten strands of very fine copper wire. Your results may vary. Happy tying. ~ Rex
