Untangle the Tangle
Submitted by Elaine Cook
You have hooked a big fish who has taken out significant amounts of line. He is slowing down and instead of putting him on the reel, you are stripping line in which is piling up in your lap or stripping basket. Congrats, you successfully land your fish and release him. Now, how do you get that mess of line back on the reel without having a massive knot? Try picking up the pile of line and throw it high in the air allowing the line to land on the water. It will probably reel-up easily.
