One of the most frustrating things that can happen when fishing is for the string to wave or curl as it is stretched.
When fishing, fishing lines usually curl or wave because the ring on the rod is not made of smooth ceramic, but this is still standard.
The string ends up spinning and rolling around more easily in the water, making it easy to twist and break.
Most of the time, these problems happen to anglers with long lines.
If it happens a lot, fishermen will have to replace their fishing lines more often.
You can take steps to keep fishing lines from curling or getting wavy, so you don’t have to change them as often.
- Use liquid shampoo and a clean, soft cloth to clean fishing lines. This will help you keep them in good shape.
- Lock the fishing reel and straighten the fishing line until it is the same length as when it was used to fish. If you forget how long the line has been used, guess.
- Use the clean, soft cloth to spread the shampoo evenly over the string.
- Rewind the string up while smearing it with the same cloth you used before; make sure you get it all.
- Check the string for flaws as you use the cloth to apply the shampoo.
- If you find flaws in the string, don’t be afraid to cut it and throw it away immediately.
- Don’t leave strings damaged or have obvious flaws because they may break more easily the next time you fish with them.
- When you’re done reeling in the string, open the spool and put it in a safe place.
- You can also use tea as a cleaner to keep strings from curling. First, bring a water container to a boil (just enough water).
- Put a packet of loose tea into the water already boiling and bring it back to a boil. Stir the water until the color changes.
- Pour the tea water boiled into a large, wide bucket while straining to keep the tea leaves out.
- When it’s all poured, put the fishing line that has already been used right away. The length of the soaked line is only long enough for the last fishing trip.
- Make sure the reel and spool are not underwater. Lift the string and pull it straight when it stops curling.
Anglers can follow a few easy steps to keep their fishing line from curling, which makes this problem with the line easy to fix.
