Stripping and re-wrapping a fishing pole is an important maintenance task for anglers, as it helps keep their rods in optimal condition. Properly done, it can also help improve the performance of the rod, and make it easier to use. Knowing how to strip and re-wrap a fishing pole is a valuable skill that all anglers should have in their arsenal.
The first step in stripping and re-wrapping a fishing pole is to gather the necessary supplies. You will need a new spool of fishing line, some hook remover pliers, electrical tape or shrink wrap tubing, scissors and possibly some thread. You may also want to have some cotton swabs on hand.
Once you have all your supplies, you can begin by removing the old line from the spool. To do this, use your hook remover pliers to grip the end of the line and pull it out from the spool. If there is any remaining line on the spool, you should remove it using scissors.
Once all of the old line is removed from the spool, you can begin to rewrap your fishing pole. Start by wrapping several layers of electrical tape or shrink wrap tubing around the end of your reel where the line will be attached. This will help keep everything secure and prevent any slipping during use.
Next, thread your new line through all of the guides on your rod from top to bottom. Make sure that each guide has an even amount of line through it before continuing onto the next one. Once you have threaded each guide with an even amount of line, you can tie off one end of the line onto itself using a simple knot.
Finally, tie off both ends of your new fishing line onto itself using more knots. Make sure that these knots are tight enough that they won’t come undone during use but not so tight that they become difficult to undo later on when needed.
Stripping and re-wrapping a fishing pole isn’t always easy but with proper technique and supplies it can be done quickly and effectively. Doing so regularly will ensure that your rod remains in optimal condition for years to come while also providing improved performance when out on the water!
