Product Review: monoMASTER Line Waste Gadget

June 4, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Grasshopper Products’ monoMASTER isn’t going to rid the world of discarded fishing line, but it can help the average angler minimize stream pollution. This morning Morgan Lyle talks about the product, which has been on the market for almost a year, and the inventor who turned him from a careless line-clipper into a gadget fan. “His name is Ian White and these days, he’s a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Georgia, researching the regeneration of heart stems cells, but when he designed the monoMaster last year, he was still a medical student in New York City, bumming around trout streams when he had a little free time and moonlighting as a fishing gadget inventor.” In the Schenectady, New York Daily Gazette.
