Avoiding Line Twist! Posted 2/8/2004

It is the nature of an open-faced spinning reel that when the handle is turned against the weight of a stationary or moving fish a twist is put into the line. The correct way to recover line is to "pump" the fish in. Make sure the fish is stationary or moving towards you to recover line. If the fish is running, wait until the fish stops before attempting to recover line. Draw the rod tip gently but firmly upward as long as the fish tends to give ground. Then, lower the rod tip and reel in the slack line.
