Avoid the dreaded back lash and lost fishing time untangling a mind boggling mass of braid with our simple baitcaster birds nest tips for beginners.
We cover how to set your cast control and spool adjustment to get that perfect amount of tension, plus using your thumb as a brake and learning to cast overhead for by-stander safety.
Of course the most important in avoiding the dreaded bait caster birds nest is the right tension on your reel’s casting controls.
Setting up your reel correctly using either the cast tension control and/or spool adjustment control will dramatically reduce your overruns and keep you fishing instead of picking at a massive tangle.
