That’s the question we askedt to several international fishing writers and industry types, asking them to keep answers brief.
The author/creator of this spooler, Sami Omari, writes at fishingworld.com.au: “When it comes to spooling up, I often find myself grabbing a screwdriver and poking it through the center of a fresh spool, then roping in family or friends to hold the spool and apply tension. The tension on the spool isn’t the only tension that builds, and after a few boring minutes of telling them to apply more pressure, the relationship with my volunteers can often strain. There had to be a better way" - Doug Olander, TOP SHOT blog
Cut the two planks that will form the frame for the line spooler. Measure and cut lengths of approximately 10 and 16 inches. The longer piece forms the base and the shorter piece forms the upright. Scaling the dimensions up may be required if you’ll be using large, bulky line spools. Pre-drill a hole for the bolt about two thirds of the way up the board you’ll use for the upright; ensure the hole is centered. You will also need to pre-drill screw holes along the base of the upright and the base board to secure the two pieces of wood together.
