Got A Question About Line.

Recommended Posts

Can I take the line that is on my reel off and then later put it back on?

yes don't do it in ur living room. take ur rod/reel to an open field...walk all the line off...cut it...and carefully spool it back onto a toilet paper roll. by 'carefully' i mean DO NOT twist the line in a hurry. it takes longer but its better to spin the roll clockwise as opposed to spinning ur wrist in circles creating a twist.

I use a nut driver out of my driver set in a drill cordless if you have it, very handy. I find a nut driver bit that fits the center hole of an old empty spool that line came on, to get a tight fit you can take one or two wraps of tape to shim it up so it fits the spool snug, walk your line of like ClackerBuzz said - "if it's a spinning reel" - if its a bait casting reel, just have someone hold the rod and spool it on right off the reel, just spool it on the old line spool the same direction it comes off the reel. Takes all the effort out and works as good as a professional spooler. It wont be a hassle when you want to reuse it either!

This is what I do.

Is the line on your reel worth saving?

I have saved line before and it worked out ok, but for me wasn't worth the time and effort.

I prefer to put on brand new line.

Oh, it's flourocarbon. I was wondering because I fish a lake that doesnt have that much weeds and stuff, but then all of next week I will be fishing this lake with tons of lillypads.

To remove line, I use the drill, and the cardboard toilet paper roll. The cardboard roll fits right on the drill and removes the line in seconds.

I switched all my reels over to braid b/c it's like having double the sets ups/versatility. i just add a 6-20ft flouro leader when needed and have never looked back.
