How Do You Fix the Eyes on a Fishing Pole?

Fixing the eyes of a fishing pole is an important task for any angler looking to get the most out of their time spent on the water. Doing so can help ensure that your line is straight and that your rod will have no problem performing as expected.

It is important to take time to properly fix the eyes of a fishing pole, as any discrepancies could lead to problems while fishing.

The first step in fixing the eyes of a fishing pole is to ensure that you have the proper tools for the job. You will need a pair of pliers, as well as some sort of lubricant or adhesive in order to secure the eyes in place. Once you have all of your materials, it’s time to begin.

The next step is to remove any old line that may be attached to the eyes. If there are still pieces of line clinging on, this can make it difficult for new line to be properly secured. To remove all old remnants, use your pliers to gently pull away at any pieces that may remain.

Once you have removed all old pieces, use your lubricant or adhesive and spread it around both eyes evenly. This will help create a secure bond between the eye and the new line. Once you have applied enough adhesive, carefully thread your new line through both eyes and make sure it is securely fastened.

Finally, use your pliers again to make sure that both eyes are firmly secured and that none of the line has slipped out from underneath them. Make sure not to over tighten them though, as this could cause damage or breakage.


Fixing the eyes on a fishing pole requires patience and attention to detail in order for it to be done properly. With proper tools and technique, anyone can easily fix their own fishing pole in no time at all!
