Description: Storing waste leader and tippet material while in the field. That's a problem I've been trying to resolve satisfactorily for years. Modified film canisters and boxes with draft excluder openings are a couple of solutions, but I've found amongst others they range from poor to almost useless. In fact, until recently I've made do stuffing waste mono into a pocket. Worse still, to avoid accidentally pulling out and loosing the tangled waste, the pocket used has been for that soul purpose. In many ways it's been a wasted pocket. And so it's been, until now...

Enter the Monomaster! Wondering if this could be the solution I'd been after, I contacted the distributor to get my hands on a unit. It's been a few weeks since and I've used the product several times.

The Monomaster is a simple device both in design and use. It consists of a 7cm (just shy of 3 ) canister having a slot shaped aperture along its side. A small handle extends from one end and a loop by which you can secure it to your vest, is molded at the other end. The 'handle' is in fact the end of a spindle which carries a cylindrical brush that spins within the canister. The fixed end cap and removable end cap form the axis while a simple ratchet housing contained in the removable end cap maintains smooth operation of the unit. The Monomaster is strong, compact and light.

As you can see in the demonstration video, waste material is offered up to the side slot and the handle spun. The brush catches and draws in the leader or tippet material, wrapping it around itself like hair on a vacuum brush. It works a treat. On each of my trips the Monomaster has accommodated the day's waste. Back at base the loaded brush is removed from the canister and the waste cut away with scissors. My only criticism of the Monomaster is that removing the cap before withdrawing the brush can be a little fiddly.

Overall I'd recommend the Monomaster as an effective affordable and robust piece of kit.

Get one, you won't regret it!
