Re: Center Pin Gift - how to spool it
I sold my centerpin several years ago and was far from an expert with it, but what I did was use a spool of 20 pound braid I had laying around for backing and then added about 50 or 60 yards of 15 pound high visibility braid for my fishing line. Below that I tied in a couple of feet of 6 to 8 pound flouro with the smallest swivel I could find at the bait end of the flouro. Below that I used a lighter flouro leader to my hook. Keep your float on the heavier flouro.
Main point was to avoid losing floats etc. Much easier to tie fishing leader to a small swivel.
