Hi ALL,
ToroTamer.....went out today BlackFish, broke off a few and now trying to get ready for tomorrow. Since I rinse my reels after every outing, I found wet line is almost impossible to splice through. Tried the finest needle but still having a hard time. Any tricks someone can share?

Don't think it's due to the line being wet, it does not absorb moisture. Some folks find it easier to work with the line a little bit wet! I'm thinking far more likely that you have introduced some twists. I've been in that situation plenty of times, too. Before running a needle thru the line take 5-6 feet of line, let it hang down from rod tip to reel seat height, then run a couple fingers down from tip to end of line, eliminate the twists. May put a little pressure on the line as you run your fingers down, I'll often squeeze my index fingernail to line to my thumb as I run the line between those fingers. Twists go away, line becomes easier to work with.


Great Stuff!
Mark
