How To Thread A Sabiki Rod (The Quick & Easy Way)
Want to see an easy way to thread your sabiki rod?
Many people have issues with feeding line through the rod because the line can sometimes bunch up inside of the tube or get caught on a lip.
However, there’s an easy way to do this using a few items you already have around the house.
It takes about a minute and since I’ve discovered it, it’s save me tons of time and headaches.
See the easy way to feed line through a sabiki rod in the video below.

To thread line through your sabiki rod, just tie about 10 feet of thin braid to a small nail and then tie the other end of the braid to the mainline with a double uni knot.
If you’re already using braid, then you can usually just tie the nail directly to the braid.
Hold the rod upside down, put the nail through the eye, then the hole, and feed the line through the tube.
When the nail comes out of the bottom of the tube, pull the line out until you have your main line out of the tube, too.
And to make sure that you don’t have to go through this process again, make sure to always keep plenty of line out of the tip and secure it to your reel of the butt of the rod when it’s not tied up to a sabiki.
Hopefully this saves you time and frustration!

I have a question. What about when you’re catching bait in the surf? Can you put a spinning reel on a sabiki rod, and just make short underhand cast’s?
Yep a spinning reel works just fine on a sabiki rod as well!
This was great, I did not know about sabiki rods.
They are an awesome tool for those rigs. Keeps those hooks under control when not in use!
Great video. I usually use a spinning reel for the sabiki. Never thought to use bait caster. Do you find it better than a spinning combo?
Thanks Charles! I used to have a spinning reel on it but it sat for waay too long after a trip and ruined the reel since I forgot to clean it off (was just an old reel I had for bass fishing). I prefer a spinning reel because line will come off faster and you can “cast” the sabiki better and more accurately than a big bulky conventional reel.
