I wind 3 turns around the arbor in the oppisit direction of wich the line is wound on, and use a modifide arbor knot, if all the backing is pulled of the reel, the moment you start to wind the reel the coils closes and grips the arbor. there is no way it will spin around the arbor ! works great with mono on conventional reels as well.
My aim is to flyfish, not to catch fish on flytackle.
