I seem to be going through a lot of line (& lures)lately. I have a couple lightish action spinning reels (one of which the spring loaded bail just broke- a slightly older (15 years?) red Silstar EX 30-can anyone here fix this?-its just the spring that went out I think). The other is a pflueger gold medalist pro - next up from the smallest size. Anyways when I go to respool (I pretty much respool when I cast and it goes to the end of the line) I end up throwing away like 80-100 feet of "older" line (though that still hasn't been used much). Is there some kind of knot I can tie bw new line and the old line that could solve this problem (and still cast smoothly when it gets to the knot). Or is it just a bad idea (breakage/strength issues)I feel like I'm wasting a lot of line. Plus its expensive. Thanks.
