Fishing is thought to be a very joyful and adventurous outdoor activity in many parts of the world. May it be camping in the countryside or relaxation from the urban hustle and bustle at your nearby lake; fishing is a way of taking off some time from life’s tough routine.
The most important things we learn from fishing are patience, reliance, and forward thinking. If you are at the lake fishing for the very first time in your life, you may ask yourself, How to spool braided line for my fishing pole?
Most of us make the mistake to understand that all reels and lines are the same, however, they are not. You may think that putting
If you are in search of some juicy catfish, you surely need to keep a few things in mind to avoid twisting, and pointless hassle when fishing. It seems that just about every angler has his or her own scheme of fishing tactics and various ways to best spool a spinning reel.
- A wet rag
- Mono (30 pounds)
- Braid (10 pounds)
- Rod with spinning reel
The very first step is to use the mono on the spool and the basic reason for using it is that if you use a braid straight away on the braid, the braid does not have enough friction and it could have the entire spool to just float along the surface. You can have another option of using a tape instead of a mono on the spool.
After wrapping the mono you have to make a simple arbor knot by pulling out the mono with a simple overhand knot. After tying the knot go around the spool with the mono and make another overhand knot around the line. Pull it tightly and get it over the first knot tightly. Cut off the tagging at the end with
Start spooning the mono and cover mono with a nice layer of mono to get it into a nice space. Put the line on the reel with some tension on the line. Be careful and do not burn your fingers instead use a wet rag to do the job.
In this step we will tie the mono to our braid. Make a knot of the mono with the braid. This knot is called the FG knot. Hold the spool tightly in between your legs or with help from a partner. With tension thread the mono around the braid 16-20 times. This spreads the tension load across a large portion of the line.
Get both the sides of mono and braid in your hand and apply tension to get both knots without touching the lines. Pull it tightly. You will observe the braids digging into the outer layer of the mono. Get the rag and tightly hold it to the rod and put the spool directly underneath the eye and start reeling.
The Arbor Knot
The very first step you need to proceed with is the process of taking the end of the fishing line on the spool and attaching it to your reel. Whenever I go out fishing this is the very first step I take is to secure monofilament or fluorocarbon line to a reel with an arbor knot.
You must be thinking, what on earth is an arbor knot? Basically, an arbor knot is a half knot tied around the main line with a half knot in the end of the line that acts as a “catch” when you pull the line tight. Here is a picture which can help you while tying the arbor knot
For attaching a braided line you should first tie a couple knots and carefully tape the braid to the spool with a small piece of electrical tape, which will hold it tight. I have seen that most
If any of you feel that your drag is slipping under light pressure when using braid on a reel, you should check on your technique on how you have attached the braid to your spool. To learn the knot you can use a small piece of electrical tape which can give you a secure connection to the spool.
Opposite Direction Of Spool
Many of you might have come across the problem with the spool line. While fishing, some of my friends spool line on backward directions instead using the opposite direction. Whenever you are playing your own tricks with the spool lines they always tend to coil and begin to create problems for you.
If any of you happen to have a loose line on your fishing reel, oh my friend, you will be having some problematic time on the water. You need to keep spool line
An overrun is nothing more than the spool spinning faster or further than the lure carries the line off the reel. What basically happens is that when you have loosely spooled braided line it will dig into the other line on the spool on and can be very problematic by playing the role of destroying your
The best way to keep tension is to run the line off the spool, down through the guides and secure it to the reel spool. Along with that make sure you pinch your fingers on the line or pinch the line down on the
If you have been fishing for quite a while you should know that most of us while fishing tends to make the mistake of
Fishing is not just a hobby, it is an art and for some of
I was not aware of a lot of stuff when I started fishing so, eventually, I thought of sharing my learned experience with you folks, hoping that it will be very helpful for you in your future fishing ventures.
