I had the mother of all backlashes Wednesday when some cottonwood pollen got on my line and then stuck in my line guide when I cast.

 

The only way I was able to get it out was to cut it.

Ugh cottonwood....it's all over the place right now and aggravating when it gets all over your line. All my Ash trees are dead from the Emerald Ash borer, why couldn't they go after the cottonwood instead.

Same here.

 

Hopefully that was cheap mono. My backlash was on 14lb Trilene XL which is easy and cheap enough to replace

KVD braid cutters in my bag.The Rapala scissors are in my TV remote holder so i can sit on the couch and be comfortable during the surgical procedure.

Yo-Zuri Hybrid. 10 bucks for 600 yards is cheap enough and i still have 400 yards or so left.

We all must use the same pair of scissors too!

 

Just for the record, they cut braid pretty well too when you lose your mind.

That's one nasty backlash. How did you manage to backlash so deep? it looks like its at least half of your line

That looked like my Chronarch CI4 when I hit a tree branch on a cast earlier this year.

I don't know how it works, but I have had backlashes that weren't anywhere near that bad, yet I had to pull all the line off the spool to clear all the loops out.
