How to Prepare My Fishing Rod?

You have your first fishing rod, at the same time approaching the great day of fishing and ask yourself, How should I prepare my fishing rod for East to stop; i.e. list for action, and many fish.

Well, if I told you that it is easy to believe me, Yes?

Well, because Yes, it is super easy to prepare a fishing rod, especially when fishing rod is spinning; you are told so in English teams rotating as the photo below, so for convenience I will use the term “spinning”.

Spinning rods are very easy to prepare, so much that in less than 10 minutes you’ll have your ready cane.

You listaré what are the steps that you must follow and then move on to explain them to you.

I’d like that even if you have to disarm it before the day of fishing, you practice enough as so that during the day don’t waste much time accommodating team.

  1. All piecing
  2. Wrap the thread (the thread also is called line).
  3. Tie the hook and lead
  4. Disassemble

Those are the 4 main steps to prepare your spinning fishing rod.

Now it is time to explain them.

Hold on tight to start the engine!

1 put together all the pieces.

When we refer to in reality fishing rod are talking about just rod, reel, but by issues of communication in this article I will refer to the “cane” as the rod and reel combo.

Do I mean?

Well now that you have this clear, then proceeds to join part of the thicker rod, where has the handle with the reel, just once we have together the reel with the handle of the stick, which attach the thinnest section of the pole with the thicker.

Ready. We already have our armed cane.

Do you think that was easy?

Now that we put together all the pieces we will pass to the next part. Wind the fishing line.

There are some times that when we buy a rod and spinning reel combo these already come with thread rolled fish (mostly the cheapest).

If this is not your case no worry here you explain how you have to wrap fish in the bobbin thread.

Recuedas which we had attached the reel with the two parts of the rod?

Now, let’s remove the thinner part of the rod, Yes, as well as read will remove to put the thread. Maybe it will seem a bit illogical, but I asked you to do it so that you see how easy that is.

Well, once we have removed the thin part we are going to take the free end of the fishing line and are going to go through until you reach the reel Rod rings and pass it underneath the small metal bar (called pick up).

We will then do a curl knot (square knot) leaving a 1.5 to 3 cm.

Now we take a pencil or a pen and place it in the roll of thread, then begin to turn the handle gently.

We must try to keep stressed the line so that it is set correctly to the coil and knots or loops do not form.

We enrollaremos the coil just before touching the roof of the coil.

I don’t know if I am I guess, but I think that you should be asking you if the line that you bought will withstand the onslaught of the fish that you capture.

… I don’t know Ummm!

Yes, I know is the kind of line that you should buy.

For a spinning Rod buy a monofilament (nylon) yarn white.

Make sure that the weight of the line (in lbs or kgs) matches within the range of the cane.

To know what is the range of weight that tolerates your fishing rod, first go to the spinning reel and drum you will see an inscription that says the range of weights and the number of yards or meters that can withstand.

This is the format: X lbs / yds or Kgs X X / X m.

Also make sure that the line you use does not exceed the capacity of the pole, about the handle of the stick you will also find that registration.

We are almost, but almost done, comes the final part.

3. tying the hook and lead

The final part of the preparation of a fishing rod is armed, we know the fishermen also as “rigs” by their names in

An armed is the willingness of hooks, leads, wires and other gear terminals in order to get a fish to bite the bait.

To create your first single assembly you will need the following:

  1. Plumb: question in your local shop to plumb size recommended for the place where you are going to fish. (To start I recommend the of pressure).
  2. Hook: as with the lead question at your local store that they recommend.

There are dozens of armed; However, your as you’re learning you will start by creating a basic Assembly that consists of the following:

  1. Take the free end of the thread shank
  2. You put a lead (weight) 30 – 45 cm from the end of the thread.
  3. You then bind the hook at the end of the thread using an improved clinch knot.


Now you have prepared your rod… missing the action.

4 disassemble

Yes, now disarming all the equipment, it is not necessary to remove the thread from the spool, the majority of these have a type of hook on one side of the drum where you can do a half turn to prevent that the thread unrolls.

Keeps your rod carefully and now comes the hard part: coping with the anxiety of going fishing!
