For as long as monofilament line has been available for fishing, anglers have battled line memory. Fishing line memory is what happens when monofilament line sits on a spool. It develops curls, which can reduce casting distance and increase the chances for snarls or tangles.
Why does the line on my reel keeps getting tangled?
Slack fishing line is a big culprit when it comes to line tangles. As you reel in slack line, this creates loose coils on your spool. When you cast, these loose coils will come off the spool quickly compared to the line around it, causing the coils to overlap on themselves as they leave the reel and tangle up.
Will fishing line melt in boiling water?
NO. Fishing line is made of various plastic compounds. These can melt if exposed to heat. Do not use fishing line to tie up your food for cooking!
Do you need to soak fishing line before spooling?
Always prior to spooling up with mono, leave your line submerged in a bucket of warm water. This will allow the water to soak into the line helping not only when you come to wind the line on but also allowing the line to bed down property on your spool.
Does Mono line have memory?
Pros and Cons of Monofilament Fishing Line Mono also has relatively low memory and is easy to pick out if it backlashes or “bird’s nests.” If you do have to cut it out, it’s recyclable, which is always a bonus. Mono has a lot of stretch, meaning high shock strength but much less precision than its rivals.
How do I fix my tangled fishing line?
Start by just pulling the line out till you get to the point where the line is stuck because there is too much tangle. Next, engage the reel, then press down firmly on the spool with your thumb and turn the handle a little bit until it spins the spool. Try pulling the line out again.
