How Do You Make a Fishing Pole Reel?

Making a fishing pole reel is a relatively easy task. It involves attaching the reel to the rod and ensuring it is secure. In order to make a fishing pole reel, you will need to have some basic tools and knowledge of how to use them.

The first step in making a fishing pole reel is to attach the reel to the rod. When attaching the reel, it is important that you make sure that it is firmly attached and secure.

This can be accomplished by using screws or clips depending on the type of reel you are using. Once you have attached the reel, you will want to make sure that all of the components are securely fastened and tightened.

The next step in making a fishing pole reel is to attach the line or string onto the spool. This can be done by threading one end of the line through one of the eyes located on either side of the spool. You then need to tie a knot at both ends so that it will stay in place.

The last step in making a fishing pole reel is to add any additional features such as drag systems or bait casting systems if desired. You can also add any type of lures or baits if desired. Once all of these components are securely attached and installed, your fishing pole should be ready for use.


Making a fishing pole reel requires some basic tools and knowledge, but with these things in hand, anyone can successfully assemble their own custom fishing rod. Attaching the reel securely, adding line or string onto the spool, and adding any additional features all contribute towards creating an effective and enjoyable experience for anglers trying out their hand at fishing.
