Right,
Iv'e seen and heared about how once you cst into your desired swim you can clip the line on the line clip so that it drops in that place every time. However, when i do this with my reel, 9 cannot wind the line back in! Wahat am i doing wrong, or can on certain reels do this?
Thanks alot

If you want to clip your line up ,do it before you click your bail arm back over.That should cure your problem[;)]

Are you clipping-up with the bale-arm open or closed?

It should be open when you put the line in the clip, other than that I can't imagine what the problem could be.

Here's a clipping-up tip; instead of putting your line directly into the clip - which many anglers believe can damage the line - try putting a rubber baitband in the clip, then, when you've cast to your required spot (and the bail arm's open) pass the 'free' end of the baitband over the line and clip that up too.

So, you've got the line held by a stretchy, 'forgiving' baitband, rather than by the 'solid' clip. Less likely to snap if you put too much into the cast and guaranteed not to damage the line. Try it - it works a treat.

When I'm feeder fishing at distance I use a 2inch piece of an old bike innertube to clip up.

Just cast to where you are fishing and then while your bale arm is open, take the spool off the reel and slip the tube over the spool from the back and cover the line, put the spool back on the reel and close the bail arm. When you cast it out again it will stop where you want it every time and does not damage the line, also if a big fish takes your bait, this method allows line to come from under the rubber band stopping you getting snapped off. One innertube will supply you with plenty of 2inch bands and last you for a long time. [:)][:)][:)]
