Hi, I'm Mark the Shark with On this clip I'm going to show you how to spool a line on a spinning reel. First we get the end of the line and we run it all the way through the guides here, be careful not to miss any guides, okay. We go through all the guides, there's a lot of spinning guides on a spinning rod because it's light tackle normally. And we're going to go all the way through it here, all the way through it, all the way through the last couple of guides, there we go, and our last guides right here. Open the bale and make sure you have the bale open, go around the spool twice, just like this, and then we'll tie a nice little knot around here, one, two, three, four, five six. Some across here we'll make this nice and tight, okay. Here we go, make it nice tight around the spool. We cut the excess off a little bit right here we'll close the bale. Okay, now we're ready to go. Now we just gotta add line. The line is coming from the spool in a bucket. We have ice in the bucket. And then we'll just take it off there nice and easy and it comes off the spool just like it goes on. And the line doesn't get spun up, a very very convenient way and the ice keep it nice and moist less friction on the line, and we've got a nice nice even flow of the new line going on, nice spinning reel. And this is how we do with the spinning reel, we add to it. You can put as much line as you want. Make sure that you don't have too much line on the spinning reel because it'll backlash on you. Just go right to the end of the spool right there, you'll be able to see it right hear on both ends. This is pretty much packed nice and tight. You want to make sure that's on nice and tight so it won't be loose. Loose line means tangles. And this is it, you're ready to rock and roll. I'm Mark the shark, thank you for watching.
