on the 1.5 glow-stick thread Salmonid reminded me about how i attach lightsticks to my rod-tips. thought i might share with you all. in the below pics im using a larger rubberband than i normally use just so its easier to see. i prefer to use a more transparent and thinner rubberband. first, just loop your 'band over the sitck at mid-point, then hold next to tip and wrap as wide as possible about 3-6 times (depending on size of rubberband), and then slide over each side of the lightstick. remember to stop stretching the 'band on the last 1-2 wraps or youll have a bunch of slack at the end. this tequnique doesnt require cutting the line either.
