When it comes to putting some new line onto your reel, you need a secure way of attaching it. So, what is the proper way of tying line to a reel? I use the Arbor Knot. The Arbor Knot is a great and super simple knot that “loops” your line tightly around any reel (spinning, casting, or fly). This allows your line to be securely tied to the reel and prevents the line from slipping around the spool.
Once you have your Arbor Knot in place, you can spool on your fishing line. Hope this helps.
