Level Winding Reels
Another invention that is a great help to the beginner is the even spooler, a device to attach to a reel to make it wind the line evenly from end to end of the spool without attention from the angler. This consists of a pulley with an arch over it as a line guide, traveling back and forth on a spindle, which is threaded right and left. The pulley travels to one end of the spool, automatically slips into the other thread and travels back again, laying the line evenly on the spool.
There are several reels made by the Shakespeare people that have a level winding arrangement built into the reel itself, but the independent even-spoolers can be attached to almost any reel.
