A wind knot is created by an overrun of slack line that’s slipped off your spinning-reel arbor. The slack line then forms a loop within the spinning reel when the bail is closed. Once it’s time to cast, you might be able to cast away that looseness, but chances are a snarl, tangle or knot is inevitable.

Should you soak braided line before spooling?
Braid does not need soaking like you do with mono prior to spooling up. Thread your braid through the eye on the but section of the rod. Double check that your spool is as far forward as possible. Tie a slip loop knot in your braid.
How do you stop fishing line from twisting?
Why does my line keep getting tangled in my reel?
The second thing you can do when to keep the fishing line from tangling on your reel is to make sure that there is no slack line when you reel in the line before casting. Slackline or loose coils occur between the reel and the bottom eye. If the line is loose, it will loop and knot when you reel it in.

Why is my fishing line so twisted?
If the line seems to tangle up, twist, or form loops, you're spooling the line at 180 degrees from its natural bend and must turn the spool over (maybe wait on the nail until this step). If it doesn't seem to form any loops more noticeable than its natural bend, you're all set and keep spooling.

Why does my reel keep getting stuck?

How do you fix a stuck drag on a spinning reel?
Items you will need Loosen the drag tension knob at the top of the spool and turn the spool to free the drag discs. A common problem with spinning reels is a frozen drag, which is often caused by dirt, debris, or the drag being left tightened. Always loosen your drag completely after using your spinning reel.
Why is my fishing line so curly?
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. It is nearly impossible to eliminate line memory completely.
