Fishing Trout Tips

Trout Tips: Putting the line through the guides

Editor’s note: The following is exerpted from “Trout Tips,” TU’s new book that can be shipped directly to you, overnight.

The problem: When stringing a line on your rod, who hasn’t reached the tip, only to drop the line and then watch it fall all the way down through all of the eyes?

The solution: Double over the end of the line as you push it through the eyes. If you drop it, it will catch and not fall through the eyes. Saves a lot of frustration and some language!
