My wife gave me this horn winder for my fishing kit on my B-day a few days back. She picked it up from Wild Willy at the event we attended a few weeks back.
Today I fitted it with some light waxed hemp and added a sinew leader and hook. While I was at it I updated my kit, going to a larger tin and adding wool to the bottom and inside the lid to hold the extra hooks.
Now no more rattling. Next I need to make up a bag to put it in, cloth or leather?
In the kit I have the new winder, second winder is horn all so set up with light waxed linen line fixed with a small wire hook, split shot and cork bobber. Extras are wire hooks, cork bobber, split shot, extra sinew, bee’s wax and a frog spear.

Another shot bag is finished for a customer.
It’s 7” at the opening and tapers out to 91/4” and is 8” deep with a 1” gusset. The inside pocket is 5” wide by 3” deep. The seams are all welted and everything is hand stitched. The flap is large enough to keep everything secured in the bag yet opens wide enough to retrieve what you need. The strap is 1” wide with a iron buckle also added is a iron ring to the strap to carry a pick and brush.
