This portion is basically the test of your patience. If you lack concentration there is a complete possibility of you failing in the task even the expert fisherman also get into the problem while doing it.
Firstly you need to open the bail that is attached to reel and then wrap the fishing line surrounding the respective reel minimum once.
Tie one end with a standard knot. After it is done have a close look at the reel from the back. There you will see the reel is cranked in the anti-clockwise direction. The fishing line that is coming off must also be in the anti-clockwise direction. Be watchful while checking the spool through the reel; maintain the direction of both of them.
Once you are satisfied with it trim the loose ends of the fishing line in according to the height you are satisfied with.
Then close the reel bail.
