Good day Everyone, its been a while since i posted in the forum and mind you this is my second post :sec .

I recently got myself 2 cool looking magnum sport centre pin reels which will be dedicated for "snorre". I noticed that the reels have no guides and when i try to put some line on them, i kind of mess up.I have seen different techniques that people use on videos and its confusing me for example, Schalk van Breda does not guide the line on the reel with his finger.

with that being said, i just have two questions;

1. how do you spool the line on the the reel?

2. do you use the same technique as reelining in an empty line when you have a fish on or what?

Basically im just asking for full instructions on how to use the reel.

1. Put the reel on a rod
2. Thread the line through the first (bottom) eye of the rod
3. Tie the line to the reel spool, I use a blood knot for this. If you use braid first tie mono line to the spool, thread that on for about 15 turns and then attach braid to the mono and keep threading on top of the mono. If you don't do this with braid the braid will slip on the spool and be unusable.
4. Start winding the line onto the reel, use your left index finger to guide the line evenly from side to side while you reel in with the right hand (opposite sides apply if left-handed). The idea is to have an even spread of line over the spool of the reel.
5. Continue until you have the required line on the reel. DON'T OVERFILL THE REEL. Stop threading the line on when there's about 5mm left to the edge of the reel spool.

It helps to keep a little tension on the line when applying it to the spool. I usually put the spool of line in a bucket of water to achieve this.

When reeling in/ reeling in a fish use your index finger to evenly guide the line onto the spool again. This takes practice but will become second nature after a bit of time. Or you'll lose one fish and learn the hard way.

Hope this makes sense.

Enjoy the 'pins. They are fun reels to use.

Yes Doc Phil is correct.

Schalk most definitely does guide the line when playing the fish.

Once you get the reel's handling under the belt then you will be able to fill it the way we do for distance casting we over fill the reel making a Bulge (Boepens) in the middle so the line has absolutely no restriction when distance casting.

On a personal note. This is just some old school fishing as new age Grinders are a much better option as they cast better and due to faster retrieval they end up with less rigs snagged on the bottom, especially in river fishing.

@DocPHil, than you for taking your time to explain this. i read somwehere in this forum that you have to switch the spool everytime you cast but other people mention that you have to switch the spool every 5th or 10th cast, which method is correct when casting?

@Enigma, I like the noise the ratchet makes, the baitrunners i own are relatively mute and in order for me to hear a run, i have to either pay attention to the reels or be as close as possible to my rod when i fish.

Redi not sure what you mean by switching the spool, you take the spool off the housing and attach it to the axle to cast, you have to do this for every cast, then take it off the axle and reattach it to the housing to put the rod down.. is this what you mean?

i meant swapping around of the spool, i.e. first cast is done with the handle facing up and the second cast is done with the back now facing up when attached to the axle. apperently this is supposed to prevent line twists.

Yes one should be paying attention to your bite indicator and or rod at all times when fishing g seriously. If you're social fishing for relaxation or having g a cold.one then a load alarm helps and a.carp bite alarm would be the.perfect.solution or one of the clip on electronic bite indicators.

Yes one should alternate which side of the spool faces the tip of the rod when casting. The reason for this is that the line spirals off and rolls on so if you keep casting with the same side of the spool facing forward you will continually spiral (twist) in one direction.

Thank You guys, so i have been wondering on how the current drought and depleting water levels in our dams and rivers affected fishing, is fishong still the same or is it difficult? i havent had the opportunity to go out in a while.
