How To Tie An Arbor Knot
I use the arbor knot to re-line spinning or baitcasting reels. If your using braided line, make sure to use some kind of a backer, like electrical tape, monofilament or fluorocarbon line to prevent the braid from slipping.
Take the line and go around the spool.
Now, tie an overhand knot at the end of the line.
Take the tag with the overhand knot, cross over your main line and go around, making a loop.
The main line should move freely through the loop.
Now, tie a second overhand knot using the loop you made around the main line, and tighten it down.
Now, it’s time to cinch up the knot.
Pull on the main line, working it back and forth until the knot is nice and tight on the spool, repeat if necessary.
Now trim the tag a little less then a quarter inch.
You just learned, how I tie the Arbor Knot.
