I just got my trout reel re-spooled at Chilliwack Dart and Tackle... I wanted it for the derby at cultus lake tomorrow, but instead of reeling line in, Im reeling line out, is there any other way of fixing this beside taking off all of the line I just got put on.... any replies asap would be great. Thanks.

HOOK said:
can i just say this one thing :happy: :happy: :happy: :happy: :happy:

what the ?? how does someone at a tackle store spool line on backwards :confused: :confused: :wallbash:
It is simple HOOK. On spinning reels they take the spool off to spool it with line.

Funny for you, you didnt have to spend 30 mins trying to get all your line off while keeping it tight. I had to get my bro to hold one end and walk around the house, wrapping it around various structures. The tricky part was keeping it from tangling and then reeling in was pretty difficult too. I managed to fix it though, hopefully I get double the fish tomorrow since I put in double the effort to put line on ;) I shoulda just spooled it to begin with, woulda saved a lot of time, and maybe a little money lol.

Maybe they thought it was a left handed reel :happy: :happy: :happy:


How much line did they put on your spool 150yds or more
and what size line
was it cheaper than buying the line and putting it on yourself

I can see it being cheaper for a level wind reel with a big line capacity for fish that will take you on a big run

For a spinner reel
I would use backing then good line
If you use good line to fill your spool you never get to use the last 75yds or so as it gets hard to cast without a full spool of line
Just a suggestion
I am sure some of the guys on here have other ideas too

So here is a question for all
How much unused line(never made it past the guides while fishing) do you throw away
Or do you reuse it for leaders etc

i re-use it for leaders when i remember to bring an old spool in for them to put it on :thumbup: otherwise it goes in the trash :-\

i still dont see how they got it wrong. you should have just done it yourself if its a spinning reel its quite simple and you can do it almost as fast as the machine. just remember the spool sits on the floor below the reel so that it uncoils a bit as you reel it in :thumbup:

I forgot to ask them the last time I was there if they participate in a fishing line recycling program. I know they have some in the states... Anyone have any idea?

The tackle shop I used to goto had a bin for used line and would recycle it. I figured most shops would have done that. I read that Canadian Tire recycles line, but I've never seen a bin for it. May be the sale reps at the store have to be asked about that.

Same thing happened to me. Gary at Riverside asked, " Are you righty or a lefty?"... "I'm a righty I reply"... "Alright buddy". He spools my line, i'm happy. I pull out my reel to go fishing, and waste half our respooling it the right way. If it weren't for his great customer service and easy going attitude I would be very disspointed in him.
