How Do You Set Up a Closed Fishing Rod?

Setting up a closed fishing rod is relatively simple, and much easier than assembling an open faced one. Knowing the basics of how to set up a closed fishing rod will help you enjoy your fishing experience more and make sure that you are able to land the biggest and best fish. Here are the steps to follow when setting up a closed fishing rod:

Step 1: Attach your reel to the rod by sliding the foot into the guides on the rod. Make sure that the reel is firmly attached to the other end of the rod.

Step 2: Tie a basic knot at one end of your line and then thread it through each guide beginning from the top, making sure that it is taut as you go. Tie another knot at the other end of your line, leaving enough slack so it can be pulled back through each guide easily.

Step 3: Securely attach a hook or lure at one end of your line and then thread it back through all of the guides, pulling it tight as you go. Make sure that everything is securely attached before casting out into deeper waters.

Step 4: Once everything is securely attached and threaded properly, cast out into deeper waters and start fishing!

Conclusion: With these four easy steps, anyone can set up a closed fishing rod in no time. Once everything is in place, all that’s left to do is go out and start enjoying your day on the lake or river!
