Fishing reels Shimano from the position of winding is not fundamentally different from other analogues. One of the pluses of Shimano’s design is a reliable line stacker. They cause less inconvenience and problems to the fisherman. They do not tangle lines, do not create cobwebs, and are easy to spin. It is ideal to make a braided fishing line winding in the fishing store itself. Otherwise, everything is done as usual and standard. Nothing to surprise the angler additionally.

Use the Arbor knot. The arbor knot is used to secure the line to the bobbin of the reel.

  • 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.

There are a few different ways to put a fishing line on a Shimano reel, depending on the particular reel model that you have. However, the most common method is to follow these steps:
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!

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to put fishing line on a Shimano reel:

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!

To put the fishing line on a Shimano reel, start by threading the line through the eyelets on the reel. Then, wind the line around the spool in a clockwise direction until it is tight. To secure the line, tie a knot at the end of it. Finally, pull on the line to make sure that it is snug before you start fishing.

There are a few different ways to put fishing line on a shimano reel, and the best method depends on the type of fishing line you’re using. If you’re using monofilament line, you can simply thread the line through the eyelets on the reel until it’s tight, then tie a knot to secure it.

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.
