Clip up cor­rectly

Anglers Mail - - Anglers -

How do I use a line clip on a reel? bomb that is just heavy enough to reach the dis­tance that you want to fish at, so that your end tackle is slow­ing down as it hits the clip. If you get the bal­ance right, much less strain is placed on your main line or braid.

An­other good tip is to al­ways po­si­tion your line clip so that it’s on top of your spool. This way, if a big fish hits the clip and you want to re­lease your line, to back­wind or bring the reel’s clutch into play, you can usu­ally free it with a fin­ger­nail.

I pre­fer round metal line clips to plas­tic tri­an­gu­lar ones. It’s gen­er­ally eas­ier to re­lease the main line from th­ese, and they are far less likely to snap off with con­stant pun­ish­ment.
