Attaching to reel



Step 1.

First loop the line around the spool.


Step 2.

Encircle the main line, or standing part, with the line.


Step 3.

And again.



Then a third time, this time passing the tag right over, then back through the previous loops.



By following these steps, we create a noose, which is pulled up tight on the spool of the reel. When the noose is pulled up tight we can wind the line onto the reel.
