How to Wrap Trimmer Fishing Line Properly Video
We wind the fishing line onto the reel correctly!
Fishing is a really exciting and fascinating affair. Novice spinningists, of course, want to quickly join him and finally get an sensible result. The reservoir where you are going to fish is selected, all the necessary accessories are bought. There are rods, reels with baits and fishing lines – too. However … Even directly on the shore, even a minor, but still tangible nuisance can wait, which sometimes completely disrupts all fishing.
Her name is winding fishing line. Each coil is equipped, it seems, with an instruction with a basic circuit. But the fact is that with such an attitude a lot can not be caught for sure. With improper winding, the loop can be reset, and instead of removing the fish from the hook, you will have to bother with unraveling the lump from the fishing line with your own hands.
The structure of the winding line can also be very different, it depends on the chosen reel
Start using spinning most often with gear that is shorter (both reels and rods). The caliber of the bobbin in them is two to three thousand (that is, a hundred-meter line is not more than a third of a millimeter thick in this case, the limit). The winding structures can also be very different: this is a chaotic winding in a random arrangement of Chinese samples (more or less suitable for monofilament, but completely inappropriate with braided fishing line), and such more professional formats as a straight cylinder, straight and inverted cone. And from the very beginning it is better to accustom yourself to those types of styling that are more serious, because this is not a whim, but higher efficiency. Having saved fleetingly several hundred rubles, then you will begin to curse everything in the world, when instead of casting and biting (well, or just casting and waiting), fishing will turn into a continuous struggle with “beards” and other fishing line overlays. Such fishing has never brought joy to anyone.
How to quickly wind a line onto a spinning reel
How to wind the line onto the reel. First of all, we fasten the bobbin to a motionless rod-shaped object
The basic, fundamental rule – the equipped fishing line must be as flat as a ruler. For a cylindrical winding, a straight line is optimal, and if a cone is chosen, it is inclined. But in any case, remember it firmly, only fishing line without bends.
How to ensure such leveling in practice? First of all, we fasten the bobbin to a motionless rod-shaped object on which it should easily and freely scroll. Pencils and knitting needles, fountain pens and screwdrivers, small metal tubes without sharp edges, and even a straight and well-polished stick can serve as a rod. As a last resort, find someone who agrees to hold.
Knots for attaching fishing line to the reel
Pull the fishing line through every single rod ring. Tie a knot at the elongated end. Now you can start refueling fishing line on the surface of the reel. First, we attach it over the bobbin in a circle, having previously lifted the arc of the logger, and when another node of the Arbor type is tied and tightened, the arc can be omitted.
The braid line is very fond of slipping. This can be avoided if a piece of rubber (for example, cut off from an unusable fingertip or a worn glove) is poked under the attachment point, in extreme cases, support it with a band-aid if there is no rubber.
And here comes the turn of winding fishing line. Turn the knob on the spool gently and evenly. Make sure that the line goes tight all the time. It must be maintained, but only in tight gauntlets.
When winding, avoid, as far as possible, completing it at the level of the sides of the bobbin. If this rule is not observed, then self-resetting of loops or their terrible tangling become very probable. To avoid this outcome, pay attention to the side even though a millimeter or two remain unreelted fishing line. On the other hand, exceeding a gap of five millimeters may make long-range casting impossible. Prevention is backing (in fact – reeling up the bottom of the main fishing line from the auxiliary, not thicker than three tenths of a millimeter, otherwise even laying will be unattainable). Keep in mind that almost all threads work well in backing, except for long-drying cotton and nylon.

To determine how much fishing line to throw on backing is possible only by experiments, there are no ready-made formulas and theoretical provisions on this subject. It will take another bobbin. We wind the main forest onto it, then backing (do not forget about the clearance from the side). Next we attach the main mount, on which we are already introducing fishing lines in the reverse order.

Many, having developed a factory line on a newly acquired trimmer, try to rewind a new one, but they cannot, because they do not know how to wind the line onto the reel spool (bobbin). It seems that there is an instruction, but it still doesn’t work out. Let’s try to deal with this issue in this article.
So, to rewind the fishing line, you need, for starters, to remove the reel from the trimmer – it will be more convenient. The removal method will depend on the type of trimmer.
Remove the coil from the trimmer
On small electric trimmers with the bottom position of the engine (when it is when working near the ground), the coil usually has two keys on its sides. We click on them and disconnect one half of the coil body from the second, which remains on the trimmer. Together with the first half, the inner part is taken out, on which the fishing line is directly wound. When parsing, be careful: there is a spring inside that can fly out and get lost.
On electric and petrol trimmers with a curved bar (it is still not possible to put a knife on such trimmers), you need to grab the coil body with one hand, and with the second hand you need to start turning the lamb on it. It is he who fastens the coil to the trimmer bar. Having unscrewed the lamb, carefully remove the entire coil, being careful not to lose the spring inside.
On electric and petrol trimmers with a straight rod and a gearbox at its end (in addition to fishing line, you can also install a knife on such trimmers) we look for a hole under the coil, insert a screwdriver into it, for example, rotate the coil quietly until the screwdriver penetrates even deeper, and the coil will lock. Now twist the entire coil clockwise (since the thread is left) and remove it from the trimmer. Then we disassemble the coil. It can be assembled using latches or twisted by a lamb. If the coil is on latches, then we press on the sides on the base of the latches so that they bend and release one half of the coil body from the other. We just twist the lamb. There may also be a third type of connection of two halves of such a coil: with it, you need to grab the lower part with one hand, and the upper one with the other, and start turning them in opposite directions. When disassembling such a coil, you must also make sure that the spring inside is not lost.

Now, having removed and disassembled the coil, we proceed, in fact, to winding.
If your coil is designed to work with only one antennae, then everything is simple. You need to rewind 2-4 m of fishing line (depending on the size of the reel), find the hole fixing the line on the inside of the reel, insert one end of the line there and start reeling the line in the direction opposite to the direction of rotation of the reel on the trimmer. On the inside of the reel, they usually indicate an arrow, in which direction to wind the line. After winding up the fishing line, we leave a small piece of it unwound to expose it. We fix this piece in a special groove located on the inside of the reel and designed so that the fishing line does not unwind at the time of collection of the reel. If there is no such groove, then you will have to hold the fishing line with your finger to prevent it from unwinding during the further collection of the reel. Next, we take the outer part of the reel and thread the outer piece of fishing line into the existing hole, collect and put the reel back on the trimmer.
If the coil is designed to work with two antennae, then do the following. On the inside of the reel, we see how many grooves are available for winding fishing line. There may be one or two. If there is one groove, then both antennae are wound along this same groove. If there are two grooves, then each antennae is wound on its own groove. The reel with one groove should have a through hole into which the line is threaded. Unwind 2-4 m of fishing line, thread it through this hole so that on each side of the fishing line sticks out equally. And at the same time we wind both antennae of the fishing line in the same direction, opposite to the direction of rotation of the coil on the trimmer and coinciding with the direction indicated by the arrow on the inside of the coil. We leave a little fishing line unwound, we fix the ends in special grooves, and if they are not there, hold them with our fingers. Pass both ends into the holes on the outer coil body. We assemble the coil and attach it to the trimmer.
If there are two grooves, we fold the piece of fishing line 2-4 m long in half, insert the loop obtained at the bend point into the groove between the two grooves, and simultaneously wind both ends of the fishing line in each groove. Further actions are similar to the previous option.
There are still reels in which the line is threaded through a through hole on the inside. After that, the ends of the fishing line, without winding, are threaded completely through the holes on the outer casing of the reel, the reel is assembled and the button, which is usually pressed, is rotated so that the line can be released during operation as it wears out. Turn the button – the line itself is wound inside. At the same time, turning it in the “wrong” direction will not work, since it can only spin in one direction. If you get used to it, then you can wind the line onto such a reel without even taking it apart – you just need to combine the through hole of the inner drum with the holes on the outer case of the reel, and then thread the line into them.
That’s all for the matter. Good winding!
