I cut a little piece of tag board about 2 inches long and 3/4 inch wide.
- Fold that little piece in half to slip over the end of the skirt tabs you have laid out.
- I use 3 pieces for color combinations on each skirt.
- Each tab needs to be 3/4 inch wide, just right to hold the end together on half of a full tab cut 5.5 inches long.
- I use the pliers type spreader for the rubber band.
- Spread the rubber, push the card board holder through as it is holding the end of the 3 tabs.
- On 3/4 oz. spinner bait I use 4 pieces of tabs 1/2 inch wide.
- Once it is through pull the tabs to the center of the band and release.
- Separate strands with a sharp pointed device like one of the battery tester pins.
- Use a quick stripping motion from the band to the end of the skirt over and over again.
- Lay a plastic sheet of cutting board material under it to keep from scaring the table or what ever your work area top may be.
- Then gather up all those strands that are separated and begin checking for the ones that were missed. I separate those with my thrum nail as I check through them.
- Move your band down the skirt past the center point toward the ends you have just done. This will allow your to easily separate the other end of the skirt using the same method with you sharp object.
