Another good article addressing some issues with picking up a baitcasting reel. I’m determined to be able to work this damned thing without creating an epic mess of line. The article is sympathetic to that sentiment and is approachable even to those of us who decided to give a baitcasting reel a try because we saw someone at Bass Pro Shops do it a couple of weeks ago and it looked kinda cool.
Informative article on why line twist happens and what to do about it. Specific to spinning reels.
BTW, It’s all your fault:
“Sorry, but line does not twist by itself. The angler always causes line-twist.”
A good start to a kayak camping checklist.
