Introdução

Still to this day there has not been a clear, identified method for the untangling of a bait-caster fishing reel line in the outdoors'-man world. Therefore, this guide illustrates and explains a technique to find and remove knots in a tangled line. This technique will show the solution we have learned from past generations that save both time and money.

Hold the reel from the bottom side in order for the spoil to be easily accessible.

  • Make sure the release button is pushed down in order for the spoil to rotate.

Identify the line or lines that are wrapped around the main line that’s running out of the spoil, down the reel.
  • Identify the line or lines that are wrapped around the main line that’s running out of the spoil, down the reel.

  • You can do this by pulling the main line tight. The lines that are knotted will look like a loop going over the main line, pulling in the direction that the spoil is rotating.

Grab a set of needle nose pliers. You need this particular set in order for you to grab the knot surrounded by the other loose line within the spoil.

  • Do not clinch the pliers very hard around the line. You could possibly break the line, then have to replace the whole spoil with new line.

Once you have identified one or more knots and have the pliers lightly clinched upon them (one at a time), begin to provide tension to the knot by pulling it up or towards you. This will allow for the knot to come out of the spoil. The alternative to steps 3 and 4 is shown by the second and third pictures below. If you do not have needle nose pliers with you, it can be done by hand but will be more difficult.

Pull the main line out, so the spoil is moving freely. Do this until the spoil of line is tight with no loose line.

  • Repeat steps 4 and 5 for any remaining knots. Another knot may be present after you untangle the first one and start pulling the line out of the spoil. You will notice this when the spoil stops rotating again, and one or more loops are providing tension around the main line just like the initial knot was previously doing.

Now, you are ready to reel the line back in. Hold onto the primary line lightly in order for it to be reeled in tightly around the spoil, so you can create maximum distance and accuracy when casting.
