- Tie the top knot at the end of the line.
- Tie a second knot from the top around the main line to make a loop with a slip knot.
- Thread the loop of fishing line through the spool.
- Pull and tighten the loop on the spool.
- The end of the tag will stop at the second knot.
- It may take a little pulling back and forth to close the loop tightly.
- Cut off the end of the tag.
- Wrap tape around the knot to prevent subsequent layers of fishing line from snagging on it.
- The Arbor knot is suitable for monofilament and fluorocarbon lines.
- Braided line can slip on a smooth bobbin by first winding on a layer of monofilament as a backing.
- Then attach the braid to the monofilament backing with an Albright knot.
1. Start by removing the cover from the spool. On most Shimano models, this cover is easily removable by simply twisting it counterclockwise until it comes off.
2. Next, take your line and thread it through the first guide (this will be located just above the spool).
3. Once the line is through the first guide, start winding it onto the spool in a clockwise direction. Be sure to leave enough room so that you can replace the cover later on!
1. Start by threading the line through the guides on your rod.
2. Then, pass the line through the eyelet on the spool of your reel.
3. Next, wrap the line around the spool several times in a clockwise direction.
4. Once you’ve wrapped the line around the spool enough times, tie it off with an arbor knot or anlus knot.
5. Finally, cut off any excess line and you’re ready to start fishing!
If you’re using braided or fused fishing line, you’ll need to use a backing material before threading your main line through the eyelets. Once you’ve threaded your main line through the eyelets, pull it tight and tie a knot to secure it. Whichever type of fishing line you’re using, be sure to check that the tension is correct before casting your line into the water.
