Re-Seating Line

Recommended Posts

So maybe I'm a bit obsessive, but lately (this season), one of my compulsions is to re-seat the line of what ever rig(s) I used on a particular fishing outing. I'm mostly a bank fisherman, so I can't run the line out behind a boat, so I tie the end of my line to a tree branch, walk until it's down to the spool, then wind it back up as tight as I can.

 

I figure this is a good way to ensure my line is staying wound properly on the spool, it also allows me to check the line for knicks/cuts/frays.

 

Anyone else do this or am I just OCD about it?

I will pull out a good bit every now and again when it starts getting sloppy but I don't really ever go all the way to the spool and then put it back on...

I do that after every outing too. I also take the opportunity to clean the line using KVD conditioner. It's amazing how much junk accumulates on the line.
