HOW TO LOAD A FISHING REEL WITH BRAID
- Ensure you have enough braid to fill up your spool. Most reels have a line capacity measurement printed on the spool which indicates what braid is suitable and how much it can hold.
- Set up your rod and reel as if you were going fishing. Flick the bail arm and guide the braid through the guides and onto the reel.
- Loop the braid around the spool twice and tie it off using a blood or uni knot. Ensuring the line is as tight as possible on the spool, cut the tag end off using a pair of braid scissors or snips .
- Seperate the two loops on the spool and tape it down with a small strip of masking tape. This will prevent any slippages while you apply drag to spool your reel.
- Flick down the bail arm and spool it up, making sure the line is packed on nice and tight under slight tension.
