- Fishing line
- Baitcast reel
- Clippers Assuming you have a baitcast reel and fishing line, you will need clippers to cut the line. Cut the line at a 45 degree angle so it will easily fit into the baitcast reel. Take the end of the line and put it through one of the holes on the side of the baitcast reel. Put the end of the line through the other hole and then tie it in a loop. This will keep the fishing line from coming out of the baitcast reel.
Step One: Open the Bail
Before you can tie your fishing line to your baitcast reel, you need to open the bail. The bail is the wire arm that holds the line in place on the spool. To open it, simply lift it up so that it’s in the “open” position.
Step Two: Thread the Line through the Reel
Once the bail is open, take your fishing line and thread it through the eyelet on the side of the reel. Then, continue to wrap the line around the spool until you’ve reached the desired length.
Step Three: Close the Bail
Once you’ve reached the desired length, close the bail by lowering it back into place. Be sure to hold onto the end of the line so that it doesn’t come undone.
Step Four: Tie a Knot
Now that the line is secure, it’s time to tie a knot. This will ensure that your line doesn’t come undone while you’re fishing. There are a few different knots you can use, but we recommend a simple overhand knot.
To tie an overhand knot, take the end of the line and make a loop. Then, bring the end of the line through the loop and pull
Step Two: Thread the Line through the Guide
Now that you have your fishing line and baitcast reel, it’s time to thread the line through the guide. This can seem daunting, but it’s actually quite simple. Just follow these steps and you’ll be fishing in no time:
- Begin by holding the tip of the line in your left hand and the reel in your right hand.
- Insert the line through the hole in the side of the reel and pull it through until there is about 6 inches of line extending from the reel.
- Next, take the line and thread it through the first guide on the rod. The guide is the small metal ring that the line goes through.
- Once the line is through the first guide, hold on to it with your right hand and then use your left hand to wind the line around the spool of the reel a few times. This will ensure that the line doesn’t slip while you’re casting.
- Now, take the line and thread it through the second guide on the rod. Again, hold on to the line with your right hand while you wind it around the spool a few times with your left hand.
Step Three: Tie an Overhand Knot
Now that you have your fishing line and baitcast reel, it’s time to tie them together! This can be done with a simple overhand knot.
First, thread the end of the fishing line through the eyelet of the baitcast reel. Then, make a loop with the end of the line, holding it between your thumb and forefinger.
Next, take the end of the line and pass it over the top of the loop. Then, pull it through the loop until it’s snug against the eyelet on the reel.
Finally, pull on both ends of the line to tighten the knot. You’re now ready to start fishing!
Step Four: Pull Line Through the Bail until snug
Now that the fishing line is threaded through the bail, it’s time to pull it through until it’s snug. This can be done by hand, or with a pair of pliers. Once the line is tight, clip off any excess line with a pair of scissors. And that’s it! Your baitcast reel is now ready to use.
Test the knot by wetting it and giving it a tug
Fishing line needs to be securely fastened to the baitcast reel in order to avoid costly tangles and lost lures. There are a few different ways to do this, but one of the most common and effective methods is to tie a simple knot. This can be done with just a few quick and easy steps:
- Start by threading the fishing line through the eyelet on the baitcast reel.
- Then, tie a basic knot around the line, making sure it’s tight and secure.
- Finally, test the knot by wetting it and giving it a tug. If everything holds together, you’re all set!
There are many different ways to tie fishing line to baitcast reels, but the most common and effective method is the Palomar knot. This knot is easy to learn and tie, and it provides a strong connection between the fishing line and the reel. With a little practice, you’ll be able to tie this knot like a pro in no time.
