How to attach the fishing line to the Spool Center using Arbor Knot
? I am demonstrating here the details of the tying a fishing line to the Arbor or to the Spool Center. Fist you will see how I am forming the knot using a colored rope and then I am doing the actual fishing line. In order to make it easier for you to learn forming the Arbor know I have placed the part of the video in slow motion. Just take a rope and try following me
Use the simple Arbor Knot to tie your fishing line to the spool of any type of fishing reel – fly reel, spinning reel or bait casting reel. The goal here really isn’t in thinking that a knot is going to hold if a fish has taken all the line down to the end your reel spool, but to have something strong enough to hold in the event you lose a rod and reel overboard and have to pull it up by the line.



Arbor Knot Tying:


  • Wrap your line around the arbor of the spool with the tag end of the line.

  • Then tie a simple overhand knot around the standing part with the tag end.
    Tie a second overhand knot in the tag end just an inch or two from the first overhand knot.

  • Pull the standing part of the line to slide the first overhand knot down to the spool and the second knot to jam against the first.

  • Trim tag end close.

Instead of presenting here some kind of animation knot, pictures or videos inconvenient for reproducing the knot (as some websites do) we provide demonstration of tying knots using YouTube videos directly by hands. Videos are taking with such angle that viewer is experiencing a full presence in tying process and can actually repeat the creation of the knot by his/her own hands. In many cases we are forming the Knot using colored ropes for better understanding and memorizing of the way how fancy rope work was done. In videos (such as "Fishing Knots Under 30 seconds) we are also demonstrating tying knots in slow motion inviting viewer tying knot together with us.

You can certainly visit our "Popular Knots" directly on YouTube where we created for you convenient playlists presenting knots depending on their use.
