Re: Stupid Question about filling a reel
I have that winder in the picture. GREAT TOOL.
But even when loading reels at the store, at times people would bring in a different brand (Cortland comes to mind) where the spool comes apart real easy and then you are in trouble. I had to lay line out through the store on more than one occasion because of this.
I agree with Curtis if you don't have the winder. But put your reel on a rod (just the handle section) and reel in with that. Easier to hold plus guide the line.
Funny cause I had that very problem this evening. Just bought some 444 Clear Camo.
