    Tackle and Gear Tips

    With the fishing season quickly coming to an end it will be time to take a look at the tackle boxes and fishing rods & reals before we store them away till the spring.

    Here are a couple of tips that everyone should know;
    1. Save Your Drag - When storing your spinning reels for the off season, be sure to release your drag. Continued pressure on the inner workings of the reel from a tight-set drag can cause the springs to loosen over time, making your reel not work as efficiently the next time you have a big fish on.
    2. Keep Your Hooks Tidy - No one likes to break off and retie, and it's worse when you have to dig around to find a new hook. Stick a large safety pin through the eye of like-sized hooks and you will always have your hooks sorted and in order.

    3. Stop New Line From Tangling - When you've spooled fresh new line on to your reel, it can take awhile for it to form a memory and to stop spilling off your reel at every chance. To get new line to conform to your reel, run a newly spooled reel under hot tap water for a minute. The heat will cause the line to form a memory and will prevent tangles and twists.

    If you have any tips, tricks or fishing hacks that you would like to share we would love to hear them. I will add all tips and tricks to this post.
