How to wind a braid on a reel

How to wind the braid with the backing lining on the reel in order to avoid overflows and breaks in the line?

Nowadays, there are no problems with equipping your spinning rod or feeder with a high-quality fishing line or braided cord. Many young fishermen would probably find it funny how not so long ago many fishermen bought the only wedge fishing line of relatively high quality in those days and began to make some manipulations with it. To give the desired color and even greater strength, it seemed to us, we boiled the fishing line in a solution of tea or St. John's wort (simple ways to color the fishing line). It was assumed that tea has tannins in its composition and therefore the fishing line will be stronger. The same operations were carried out in relation to the old fishing line, which served for ten years or more, and therefore was torn like a rotten thread. After boiling and refreshing in a solution of strong tea, such a fishing line came in a relatively good condition.

They did not even hear about the braided cord, but used the usual nylon cord. It was successfully used for catching giant pike and catfish. They also put such a cord on the mugs, since the fishing line from the side cutout of the mug was often discarded due to its elasticity and got confused. The lack of necessary fishing goods was then compensated by the abundance of fish that they took for everything. But in the current abundance of goods there is one drawback. They cost quite a lot of money, in particular, braided cords ..

You bought a good braided cord and want to wind it onto a spool of an inertialess coil, but how? ..

This seemingly simple question often confuses beginner spinning players, and not only beginners. It happens, and already experienced anglers do it by eye, anyhow, and with the help of a conventional insulation tape, which serves as a primitive lining. And this is not always accurate. Meanwhile, proper winding contributes to the good work of the reel and casting distance, and also does not allow the discharge of fishing line and its tangling.

So, how to wrap the braid on the reel?

To begin with, a reel with a cord is taken and at the end of the braid an ordinary loop is made. Then the reel is mounted on a spinning rod. Only a butt part with the ring closest to the coil is required.

Having previously thrown back the coil of the coil, we pass the braid with a loop into the near ring and, having made a noose-loop from the cord, we throw it on the coil of the coil. First you need to check if the braided cord slips during the first turns of the reel and if there is a reliable winding ">

Now you need to wind the cord on the spool of the coil

Before this, we put a bowl of water on the table and put a reel with a wicker in it. This is necessary in order for the cord to be saturated with water and become exactly what it is in fishing conditions, that is, it has acquired volume and density. In addition, a wet cord fits better on the spool. But it does not need to be removed from the water during winding. So, rotating in containers with water, the wicker is wound on a reel.

After the cord is wound on the spool of the coil, you need to wind the so-called backing, that is, the material that will serve as a lining for the cord. At the moment, the level of the wound braid is too low from the upper edges of the spool and such winding cannot be considered correct. For backing, you can use any fishing line of the same diameter as the cord or a little thicker. The ends of the braid and fishing line are connected by a fishing knot, and the fishing line is now wound on the spool, which will serve as a backing lining.

When the line is almost flush with the edges of the spool or lower by a millimeter, winding should be stopped. It should be noted here that it is allowed to wind the braid flush with the edges of the spool, and the monofilament - only below the edges, otherwise there will be overflows and cliffs of the fishing line. But it is better to wind the braid just below the edges of the spool, somewhere by a millimeter.

After this, the spool with wound braid and fishing line is removed and a new spool is put in . The backing and cord are already wound in reverse order on it. As a result, the braid will be perfectly wound on the spool, having an elastic lining under it - backing. And the level of the wound braid will be exactly the same as it was chosen during the initial winding of the cord and backing, that is, flush with the edges of the spool or slightly lower by half a millimeter or a millimeter.
