Stupid Question about filling a reel
Why are fly lines packaged the way they are, and what is the proper way to get the line from the package to the reel?
Invariably when I do it the line gets terribly tangled. It isn't spooled tightly enough to come of the package spool properly, the spool often comes apart, and if I lay the line loops on the floor to unwind like a spinning reel, it still comes out in tangled loops.
Are those fancy line holder/spooler rigs necessary to do it properly?
