Again, I know most all of you guys do this, but some beginers dont. I always carry an extra reel in my tackle bag full of line. On many occasions I have snagged up after making along cast, and while trying to break free my line has broke close to the reel. This will leave you with a reel without much line left on it, all you have to to is put on a new reel full of line. I even go to the extreme, I carry an extra reel full of line, plus extra line, incase this mishap happens twice, and it has. Nothing worse than fishing with one rod, when you should have 2 in the water.
