There’s nothing quite as frustrating as fishing with a broken line. Not only is it inconvenient, but it can also be quite dangerous. If you’re like most fisherman, you keep a supply of spare line on hand in case of emergencies. And if you’re like most fishermen, you don’t know how to splice braided fishing line. In this blog article, we will show you how to splice braided fishing line quickly and easily. We’ll also provide some tips for avoiding common mistakes and pitfalls while fishing with braided line.
What You’ll Need?
What You’ll Need:
- Fishing line
- Braided fishing line (available at most sporting goods stores)
- Threading needle
- Tape measure
- Nylon fiberfill stuffing
- Ruler or measuring tape
- Start by cutting the fishing line to the desired length. Measure the circumference of your wrist using a tape measure, and cut the fishing line to this length. Be sure to keep the ends even so that they will tie easily.
- Taking one end of the braided fishing line, braid it together once or twice, making sure that both ends are evenly covered. Once you have a nice knot, untie it and put it away.
- Take the other end of the braided fishing line and make a small loop with it. This is where you will insert your pin afterwards. Make sure that the loop is big enough so that your fingers can fit inside it comfortably, but not so big that it becomes cumbersome to work with later on.
- Now take your scissors and cut a small hole in one end of the nylon fiberfill stuffing. This hole should be big enough for your threading needle to fit through without sticking out too much on either side (leave about an inch of stuffing at each end).
- Take your threading needle and poke it through one end of the nylon fiberfill loop. Now take the other end of the threading needle and loop it around the first one several times. Make sure that the knot you made at the beginning of the fishing line is still securely in place. Once you have a nice knot, pull on both ends of the threading needle to tighten it up.
- Next, take your ruler or measuring tape and divide the circumference of your wrist by 3.14 (this will give you the approximate number of stitches that you will need). Make sure that your stitches are evenly distributed across your wrist circumference.
- Now position your nylon fiberfill stitch inside the small hole that you created earlier. Once it’s in place, use a pin to hold it in place while you start stitching. Stitch all around your wrist, making sure to go over the knot that you made earlier on several occasions.
- Once you’ve finished stitching, cut off the excess nylon fiberfill stuffing and tie it off in a knot at one end. You now have a comfortable fishing strap!
How to Splice the Fishing Line?
In order to splice braided fishing line, make a loop with one end of the line and tie it off securely. Take the other end of the line and make a similar loop, but this time, insert it into the first loop so that the two circles are now connected. Now, using your fingers, pull both loops tightly together until they’re close to being merged. Finally, use a needle or small piece of wire to make a simple knot in the middle of the two loops.
Tips for a Successful Splice
When it comes to fishing with braided line, there are a few tips you can follow to increase your chances of a successful catch.
The first thing to remember is that braided line works best when it’s taut. One way to keep it taut is to splice the line in close to the reel, rather than letting it drape over the side. This will also help prevent tangling.
Another tip is to use a leader material that is specifically designed for braided line. This type of material will help reduce looping and improve casting performance.
And finally, make sure you have plenty of spare line on hand in case something goes wrong. If a snag occurs, you can quickly re-splice the line without having to start all over from scratch.
How to Make a Splice Tool?
Making a splice tool is not difficult, but it does require some know-how. The steps are:
- Cut the desired length of fishing line.
- Make a small loop at one end of the line.
- Take the unused end of the line and place it over the small loop on one side of the line.
- Bring the unused end up over the small loop on the other side of the line and pull tight to form a knot.
- Now make a second knot about 1 inch from the first knot, and cut both ends off of the fishing line.
- Use your new splice tool to make a secure connection between the two knots by gently pulling on both ends simultaneously (see picture).
How to Make a Braided Fishing Line Net?
A braided fishing line net is an easy way to trap large fish. The basic idea is to use a long piece of braided fishing line and make a loop at one end. Then tie the other end to something heavy, like a rock or tree branch. When a fish swims into the net, it pulls on the line, which causes the loop to tighten and trap the fish. This technique is great for catching small game fish like crappies and perch, but it’s not as effective for larger fish.
If you’ve ever needed to splice braided fishing line, then this guide is for you. We’ll show you the basics of how to do it so that you can fix a broken line or replace a section of your braided string without any trouble at all. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced fisherman, learning how to splice braided fishing line is essential knowledge. Happy fishing!
