Tight Lines / Fishing Tip of the Week

Most everyone these days fishes with spinning tackle and everyone who uses it has line twist now and then. There are two ways to avoid this annoying feature of a spinning reel. The first is to put the line on your reel the same way it comes off the filler spool. Lay the filler spool flat on the floor and crank away. The second is to never reel against the drag. When you hear your drag going off, simply stop reeling and no more line twist.
