Line Change Time

Here’s a thought, when spooling up line, do you spool up two or three spools all the with the same line?  If so, why?  Unless you fish all your baits in the same situation, why would you need all the spools to have the same line?  Unless you fish the same spots with all your rod’s – which I’m sure you don’t.  For example, a distance rod requires a distance line, a margin bait would be better suited by using a fluorocarbon coated line, to enable it to be pinned down to the bottom.

If you look at my photo of my rod’s shots on the bank, you will spot that I don’t always use the same line on both rod’s.

When I spool up my reels and spare spools each time, I try and cover all the fishing situations which I will come across that year (as best as I can).  This year I have gone for.


For distance, this time I am using ASSO Mainline Pro & Mainline Abrasion



And for the margin fishing, I spooled up with Fluorocarbon coated & Sinking Mainline

All done and set for the next few months.

Hope this Helps



About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
