To spool a closed face fishing reel, first, thread the fishing line through the guides on the rod. Then, tie one end of the line to the reel and hold onto the other end. Start reeling in the line until it’s tight against the spool. Next, tie a knot in the line and cut off any excess. Finally, reattach the Fishing Line Stopper to keep the line from unraveling.
First, attach your lure to the end of the line and make a small loop. Then, hold onto the loop with one hand and use your other hand to spin the reel in the opposite direction of how it would normally spin. This will wrap the line around the spool. Keep spinning until you have about 4-6 inches of line left free at the end. Finally, cut off any excess line and reattach your lure.
1) Cut a piece of fishing line that’s about 6 feet long.
2) Tie one end of the line to the black or gold arm on the top of the reel. This is known as the “arbor knot.”
3) Hold the other end of the line in your left hand and thread it around the “spool arbor,” which is located just below the gearbox on your reel (see photo).
4) Carefully pull the line taut as you wrap it around the spool arbor.
Another way to put a line on a closed face reel is to use your hand. Place the reel in your palm with the spool facing up. Take the end of the fishing line and wrap it around your thumb and first two fingers (the index finger and middle finger). Hold on tightly to the line as you spin the reel with your other hand. As the line wraps around the spool, move your thumb and fingers so that they are always in contact with the line. When you’ve wrapped all of the lines around the spool, cut off the excess and tie a knot in the end.
