How Do You Put a New Eye on a Fishing Pole?

Putting a new eye on a fishing rod is a relatively easy task. All you need are the right tools and some basic knowledge of the process.

It’s important to note that the eye should be properly aligned with the rod so that the line can run through it smoothly and without obstruction. Also, make sure to use the correct size eye for the rod. This will ensure that your line won’t slip off or get tangled.

To begin, you’ll need to remove the old eye from your rod. You can do this by using a pair of pliers or even just your fingers if you’re careful enough.

Carefully twist and pull until it comes off completely. Once that’s done, you can start putting on your new eye.

Before starting, be sure to measure and cut the correct length of line for your new eye. It’s important to make sure it’s not too long or too short as this can affect how well your line runs through it. Once you have the right length measured out, thread it through the eye.

Next, take a pair of pliers and press down on either side of the eye while slowly pushing it into place in its designated spot on the rod. Make sure to press firmly but gently so as not to damage either parts in any way.

Finally, tie off your line securely at both ends of the new eye and give it one last tug to make sure everything is secure before you go fishing again!
