There are a few different ways to put a fishing line on a closed reel, and the method you use will depend on the type of reel you have. For spin casting reels, you’ll need to open the bail and feed the line through the guides. Then, close the bail and give the line a few wraps around the spool before locking it in place.

For baitcasting reels, open the evel Shener by depressing the thumb bar. Feed your line through the guides and then secure it by closing the evel Shener. Finally, for fly fishing reels, first, remove any existing line from the reel. Then, feed your new line through the guides and onto the spool before winding it tight and looking it in place.

Whichever type of reel you have, make sure to leave enough line hanging off the end so that you can tie on your lure or bait. happy fishing!

There are a few different ways to put a fishing line on a closed reel, depending on the type of reel you have. If you have a baitcasting reel, you’ll need to open the side plate and spool the line onto the reel.

For a spinning reel, you’ll need to remove the spool and thread the line through the guides before attaching it to the spool. You can also use an arbor knot to attach the line directly to the spool. Whichever method you use, be sure to leave enough line hanging off the end of the spool so that it can be easily attached to your rod when you’re ready to go fishing.

There’s actually a pretty simple process for putting a fishing line on a closed reel – and it only takes a few minutes to do. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

1. Start by threading the end of your fishing line through the hole in the spool of the reel. Make sure that the line is exiting from the bottom of the spool.

2. Once the end of the line is through the hole, begin winding it around the spool in a clockwise direction. Be sure to leave about 6 inches of slack at the end of the line.

3. Continue winding until you’ve reached your desired length – and then tie off the end of the line to one of the holes in the spool.

And that’s all there is to it! With a little practice, you’ll be putting a fishing line on your reel like a pro in no time. Happy fishing!

There are a few different ways to put fishing line on a reel, depending on the type of reel you have. For most closed-face reels, you’ll first need to remove the cover or spool guard.

You can then take the end of your line and thread it through the eyelet on the inside of the spool, making sure to keep tension on the line as you wind it around the spool. Once you’ve wound enough line around, you can replace the cover or guard and start fishing!

There are a few different ways to put a fishing line on a closed reel, depending on the type of reel you’re using. Here are some general instructions:

To start, find the end of your fishing line and tie it to the bail arm. This is the curved piece of metal that’s attached to the spool; when you open it, it allows the line to come off of the spool. Once the line is securely tied to the bail arm, close the bail and begin winding the line around the spool in a clockwise direction. Be sure to leave enough slack in the line so that it doesn’t get too tight when you close the bail again.

Once you’ve wound about half of the fishing line onto the spool, open the bail again and feed the end of the line through all of the guide eyes. These are the small, round pieces of metal that the line passes through as it comes off of the spool. After feeding the line through all of the guides, close the bail and continue winding until there are only about six inches of the slack left.

At this point, you can tie the end of the line to the spool so that it doesn’t come loose. Some people like to use a figure-eight knot, while others prefer a more simple overhand knot. Once the line is tied off, close the bail and you’re ready to start fishing!
