    I use dental floss for some fishing applications at times.
    Dental floss is very strong and is very hard to break.
    It comes in handy and the small container it comes in makes it easy to carry and add to my tackle box.

    I use dental floss out on the lake to retie a loose guide on my rods if needed. Then when I get home I can fix it right.

    I also use dental floss to tie a slip cork stop knot on my lines. It works great in these applications.

    Does anyone else use dental floss for some other fishing applications?
    If so please tell us what are some of the things you use it for.

    Never thought about using floss like that thanks for the new addition to the tackle box

    I love this.

    Now, when my dentist asks if I've been flossing, I won't have to lie any more.:smile2:

    We used it to repair my brothers backpack when it started coming apart 40 miles from the trailhead in the boonies of Wyoming. It was much stronger than the thread that was failing. Last time I saw my brothers pack it was still stitched together with that stuff, more than 10 years later, lol.
