When learning how to line a fishing rod, there are a few things that can be useful.

The first is to try to get the line in the handle. Most rods will have a “thumb rest” that goes around the rod. When using a thumb rest make sure you don’t lean on it too far down as it will give you a hard time getting the line in.

When putting the line, make sure that you are not going all the way through the handle. If you do you will need to work harder at getting the line through.

Make sure to take all the slack out of the line before putting it on the handle. Some fishing rods will have a slot for the line left loose.

You will need to put the line in before taking the line off the rod. If you don’t do this you could snag the line and have to undo the knot. You will have to pull the knot up towards the reel spool while turning the handle all the way out to pull it down.

Once you have a large amount of the line, you can use a reel to let the line travel through.


Learning how to put a line on a fishing rod can be a little tricky. It requires a bit more skill than most people think it does. But once you know how to line a rod, you will be able to tie knots anywhere on the line and tie the lines together.

When you are putting the line on a fishing rod, make sure you get all the way through the head. Most rods have a thumb rest that goes around the entire rod. This is where you need to get the line past.

There is really no limit to the types of fish that you can catch using a fishing rod. If you know how to put line on a fishing rod, it will allow you to create some very powerful casts. You will be able to enjoy many years of fishing with your rod.
