How Do You Thread a Telescopic Fishing Rod?

Threading a telescopic fishing rod is a straightforward process, but it can require some patience. Whether you’re using a spinning reel or a baitcaster, the steps needed to thread the line through the guides are the same. Properly threading the line ensures that your rod is able to cast accurately and efficiently, so following these steps will help you make the most of your time on the water.

Step 1: Begin by attaching your reel to the rod. This is done by simply screwing it into place. Make sure that the foot on the bottom of the reel fits into place in between two of the guides on your rod.

Step 2: Cut off about 10 feet of fishing line from your spool and tie one end onto your reel. This should be done by looping it through one of the holes in your spool and then tying a simple knot. The knot should be tight enough that it won’t come undone, but not too tight so as to damage your line or spool.

Step 3: Thread one end of the line through each guide on your telescopic fishing rod from top to bottom, starting with the one closest to where you attached your reel. Make sure that each guide has only one strand of line going through it. If there are two strands, remove them and start again with only one strand going through each guide.

Step 4: Now that all of your guides are threaded, tie another knot at one end of your line and attach it to an eyelet on your reel. Again, make sure that this knot is tight enough so it won’t come undone while casting or reeling in fish, but not too tight so as to damage either the line or spool.

Conclusion:Threading a telescopic fishing rod is easy once you know how to do it properly! Just attach your reel to the rod, cut off about 10 feet of fishing line from a spool, then thread it through each guide starting from top to bottom before finally tying a knot at one end and attaching it to an eyelet on your reel. With patience and practice, you’ll be able to thread a telescopic fishing rod like a pro!
