Fly Lines: Spooling, Leader Connections, and Fused Loops

PageLines- SaltWaterFlyRods.jpgWe’ve received several specific questions about fly lines, so I called Bruce Richards at Scientific Anglers to get some expert opinions.

Question: When spooling a new fly line onto a reel using my “made for line winding and removing” fixture, the fly line always underwraps and tangles in the plastic storage spool, causing a halt to any further progress and the need to start untangling a ball of line. Is there a special technique for spooling the line on the reel without tangles?
