Fixing Line Twist: Video

8 comments / Posted on / by


A day floating the river can turn into frustration when your running line starts to tangle.

There are lots of reasons fly lines get twisted. The most common is being rolled under foot in the bottom of the boat. However it happens, it’s a mess of tangles and knots that make fishing frustrating. There’s nothing worse than landing your fly just short of the strike zone because your running line is tangled.

Fortunately there is a simple trick to fix line twist. I learned this trick from my buddy Zack Dalton of ROI Products and it changed my life. I promise you will love it.

P.S. Watch closely and you’ll see a fish eat my fly behind my back.

Watch the video and never suffer with a twisted line again.

  1. Love the tip! This happens with any repetitive casting (not just a drift boat) if you have running line off the reel that is not getting cast. It is due to rotation in the rod and not having perfect tracking forward and back. I can get it standing on the lawn practicing distance casting. To get rid of the twists you can also “burp” the reel…just cast all the line you have off the reel a couple of times.

  2. Like Todd said above: “Duh” I was just dealing with this in a much more inefficient manner, I wish I’d tried this. Thanks.

  3. YES! Was dealing with this the other night, causing extreme frustration! Remembered the post on Facebook and blam…problem solved. Thanks guys!
