To thread your line through the guides, first, make sure the line is untangled and free of knots. Then, hold one end of the line in each hand and twist it in opposite directions. This will cause the line to form a loop. Slip one end of the loop over the eyelet at the top of your fishing pole, then carefully slide it down towards the handle. Repeat this process with each guide on your fishing pole, making sure that each loop is close enough to the previous one so that the line doesn’t get tangled. Once you reach the bottom of the pole, tie the end of the line to the fishing reel.
First, cut a piece of line that’s about 6 feet long. Then tie a loop in one end of the line (making sure it’s tight) and thread the other end through the loop. Now make another loop on the other end of the line and pull both loops tight. You’ve now created a ‘stopper knot’ which will keep the line from slipping through the loops.
Next, take the middle of the line and pass it over the hook eye (from the back to the front), then make a small loop. Pull this loop through the first loop you made, then wet the line and pull tight. You’ve now tied a ‘uniknot’.
To finish, tie a fishing reel to the end of the line using an Improved Clinch Knot.
Once you have the line threaded through the guides, you’ll need to tie it to the reel. most reels have a built-in knot that you can use for this purpose, but if yours doesn’t simply tie a simple overhand knot around the axle of the reel.
