Tip of the day for July 19, 2007

Teeside piker Darron Nixon has some tips for loading multiplier reels with braid.

"When loading a multiplier reel with braid make sure it goes on really tight," he says. "That way the loaded braid won't bed in to the spool. It makes casting much easier and helps prevent tangles and overruns.

"Before loading the spool attach it by tying on then adding a small piece of tape. Now the non stretch braid won't spin on the spool making you think the clutch is wrongly set.

"This does not happen with nylon monofilament as the line stetches and clings to the spool, making slips less likely."
