When you find yourself stuck with a wind knot deep in your spool, your first instinct is to open up the bail and start peeling the line off.
This actually can lead to a couple of issues.
A lot of times, the knot will loop up onto itself forcing multiple strands of line to go in every which direction leaving you with even more tangles and knots to deal with.
The other issue is that as you pull the line off of your spool, it begins to ball up by your feet.
If you accidentally kick the line or it gets caught on something near your feet, you could end up with another mess of line to clean up.
So the solution is simple.
First, lighten your drag up to where it’s very loose.
Then, grab the end of your line that is still through the eyes of the fishing rod.
Start pulling on the line with your hands.
The wind knot will eventually untie itself and come undone as you pull the line out.
Now the line you’ve just pulled off is clean and knot-less.
Simply tighten your drag a bit more and reel the line back onto your spool putting just enough tension on the line so it lays evenly.
