Casting a reel with line is an important part of fishing – you need to put the right amount of line on the spincast caster and then cast it out into the water. But how do you put the fishing line on the reel? In this article, we’ll show you how to put fishing line on a spincast reel using three different methods.

What is a spincast reel?

A spincast reel is a type of reel that casts a line by using a barbed mechanism to pull the line through the reel. This type of reel is often used for fishing with light tackle, such as spinners and crankbaits.

How to put fishing line on a spincast reel?

Putting your fishing line on a spincast reel can be a little tricky at first. Follow these steps to get it right every time.

  1.  Make sure the reel is properly set up before starting. This includes making sure the bearings are properly lubricated and that the line is tensioned properly.
  2.  Hold the spincast reel by its handle and line it up so the arrow is pointing down. Make sure the line is running smoothly between both spool pins.
  3.  Carefully take hold of one end of the line and place it over the spool pin on the front of the reel. You may need to use your fingers to push down on the line to get it over the pin. Once it’s in place, release your grip on the line and hold onto the other end.
  4.  With your thumb on top of the reel, gently pull up on the line until it’s tight against the spool pin on the back of the reel. There should now be enough slack in the line so you can’t see it extending beyond either side of the reel body (this is called “line out”)

Tips for using a spincast reel

When using a spincast reel, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First, make sure the line is tight enough so it doesn’t spin freely. Second, make sure the spincast reel is level and properly aligned with the rod. Finally, make sure the bait is well placed on the spincast and reel is off the ground. With these tips in mind, you’ll be ready to start fishing!


Putting fishing line on a spincast reel is an easy task that can be completed in just a few minutes. Before you start, make sure the reel is properly lubricated and fully assembled. Then, thread the line onto the spool and attach the end of the line to the anchor point on your rod. Once everything is ready, pull back on the handle until you reach your desired tension.
