KEEPING AGATE TIP FROM CHIPPING OR BREAKING


KEEPING AGATE TIP FROM CHIPPING OR BREAKING

By C. L Cuurz

During August. when on a fishing trip in Wisconsin, I had the misfortune of breaking the agate tip on a Heddon casting rod. I always use a wire leader in casting, as it is very much easier to change “plugs” if the bass are not “looking ‘em over” as they should. After a cast I retrieved the lure too closely to the tip, causing it to break the agate. Luckily, I had another tip with mc and had an inspiration to keep this one intact.

Found in my tackle box (for some reason or other placed there several years ago) an Eberhard Faber rubber pencil eraser. Then the thought struck me, “Why not make a protector for the tip?” No sooner said than done. Took the eraser and with a knife cut it into about six or seven “protectors” looking something like Figure 1. Took a small nail and poked a hole through from top to bottom of “protector.” Drew my line through it and fastened line to leader as in Fig. 2. Had no more trouble and did not even have to watch the leader when I retrieved the lure, as the moment the rubber protector struck the tip I had to quit winding her up. Intend to have a couple of erasers in my tackle box for emergency cases in the future.
