Swivels for Trolling
Be generous in your use of swivels, for of all methods trolling is most apt to throw a kink in the line; and for this reason it is best not to use a line upon which you depend for bait-casting. Also, do not use a light split-bamboo casting-rod for trolling, since the steady deep-water strain is liable to give it a set. If your favorite fishing is fly- and bait-casting your reel outfit will probably consist of single-actions and quadruple-multipliers. In this case get a double-multiplier, 80 yard size. A very good one can be had in rubber and nickel for $4.50. Use 50 or 75 yards of F or G oiled silk line. Be sure that the reel has a strong click so that, when trolling, the line will not run out when the thumb is removed from the spool.
