This is the easy part,Almost everybody writes disk these days and discards the spindle.Either you or someone you know will have one.Some stationary stores also sell empty spidles

Step 2: Make a Small Hole in the Side of the Cover

now that its done just place your fishing line in the spool and feed the tip of the line through the hole you melted.Place the spindle on the floor or table and you are ready to wind your fishing reel full of line without the spool running al over the floor.

Great instructable, I love the simplicity. This will come in pretty handy, as I've been known to chase a few spools of line in my day

Very good idea. I made something similar, using a plastic flask to wind a cable in their interior that gave me good result when avoiding that the cable got entangled.
