Monofilament Lines: Loops Reduce Performance

You have not even thrown the rod when the line is already entangled in the body of the reel, and one of the reasons why this could happen to you is because the thread has already memorized the loops.
Certainly, the loops that have formed in the fishing line can reduce not only the performance of your launch, but that of your lure and therefore, make fishing work more difficult, especially when fishing using lures in which the action is performed exclusively by the fisherman, as the superficial ones.

There are several reasons why this happens:
We use a thread of poor quality.
We place a line of greater or lesser power than the one suggested by the reel manufacturer.
We do not change the thread frequently.
We do not execute the releases correctly
The diameter and friction of the cane guides count
We use a Bad Quality Thread - boat power pole

The difference in the prices of a thread of the same characteristics; For example, the same power and manufacturing material, in this case nylon, is a key factor that will determine the frequency with which we must change the bobbin thread. And although in principle we should change the thread with some frequency to achieve the best performance in the throws, many times it is not possible.

On the other hand, a poor quality thread will probably form loops as soon as it is on the reel, regardless of whether or not it is suitable for the rod and fishing reel. If our budget allows it, we should not skimp on buying a thread of good quality, low memory and elastic enough (without exaggeration).

We put an Improper Line on the Reel

Every time I have gone fishing with people who go fishing for the first time, I notice the following, they use a line of 20 pounds or more for light reels (4-10 lb). It is expected that the diameter of the bobbin, being smaller than it should for the placed line produces loops and at the same time the thread guide does not do its job.

It is understandable the innocent choice of those newbies in the sport fishing needs of contemplating the chance that they are hooked with an animal of good weight and great strength; nevertheless, it is well known by those sport fishers that records are broken using equipment with power characteristics inversely proportional to the weight and size of the catch.

Don't Change the Thread Frequently

Ideally we should change the thread of the reel every time we go fishing, especially if our throwing sessions are extensive and we subject them to sudden changes in temperature.
A monofilament line wound on the spinning or baitcasting reel eventually forms loops, because it memorizes the shape of the coil.

In theory we should, to get the best performance, change our monofilament line with some frequency (an experienced competitor will come out with a new line); however, the vast majority of fishermen do it a few times a year, or they cut the line segments as they wear out.

This is a very sensible solution, as long as the thread is of good quality.

We Do Not Execute Releases Properly

I know inveterate fishermen who do not lose the opportunity to go fishing whenever they can, but have not learned to make the throws correctly. Yes, they may capture good specimens, but they don't get the best performance from their equipment.

Throwing with a spinning rod is not complicated, if it is practiced in the correct way, but sometimes we underestimate the power of the launch and the repercussions that this can cause in the rigs we use. One of the main reasons why our line becomes entangled is because we do not take into account the weather conditions, in this case, the wind.

The bat-type "baseball" throw of a cane is the most common, but not always the right one. Wind conditions can cause us to force the line too much, and not get the distance we want. A flush launch could give us better results.

The Diameter and Friction of the Guides in the CaƱa Account

In my experience I have noticed the following, a rod and a reel can have a power range reeling fish; However, that does not mean that good results are obtained within that range.

What am I going with this? A fishing rod can have a range of 4-10 lb, but its guides can be very small for a 10 lb line or very large for a 4lb line, or simply, they exert a lot of friction.

Both conditions can lead to your line forming loops and getting tangled up.

Everything is in the taste of the Fisherman

The above is my personal experience, each teacher with his book, and each fisherman with his rod.
Certainly, the variables are many, but knowing your equipment well may not be worth a world record, but it will have an effect on making your fishing day more pleasant, without worrying about unraveling the thread, rather than fishing.
