I was wondering what was the best way to dispose of some old mono line? I couldn't find a place that recycles it, so should I just go scissor happy on it? Or does anyone else know of a recycling place?
Well I don't really want to... it annoys me when people do that. Not only do I get stuck in it but wildlife get stuck in it, which is the point why I am asking for the best way to get rid of the line so that I don't annoy myself, others, and harm nature.
I'm not sure where you are located.. But Sportsman's Warehouses have recycle bins for used fishing line. At least the one in Colorado Springs does. Outlaw Bait & Tackle has a bin too (located in Colorado Springs). I think some Sports Authorities have them..but not sure if all have them? And Bass Pro in Denver most likely will have one too.
Acetone will dissolve rayon, but not nylon. Best bet, take it to one of the sporting goods stores that has a recycle bin for fishing line. As mentioned previously, Sportsman's Warehouse will take it, and no doubt others as well.
With the new CDC recommendations on wearing face mask/shields to fight the spread of this damn crap without taking the needed ones out of the hands of the people that really need them I had a thought! I know, Tony thinking is dangerous, could be worse! A couple years ago a bunch of us on here...
Since the 1980s a group of us would go on several annual backpack/fishing trips to alpine lakes (snowmass, stout creek, various sangre de cristo lakes, capitol (now fished out ? ) constantine - just to name a few.
We are now in our 60s so for the past couple of yrs we've selected a base camp...
