Need a Popeil Pocket fisherman manual

I am trying to put new fishing line (6 # Vanish fluorocarbon) on an old Popeil Pocket Fisherman that I bought that did not come with an instruction booklet/manual. The rod is in excellent condition, but has no line in it at all. I loosened the two screws on the side of the rod and popped out the line spooling mechanism. I have tried without success to attach new line to the area where I believe a ''miniscule'' amount of line belongs, but I'm not having any luck getting any line to wind up. I am not mechanically inclined I guess. Duh. Who has a manual?

For the original pocket fisherman. I believe the design has not changed. Once you do it the first time it is actually quite easy.

Two things to note. Read this whole thing first.

1) the location of the bail spring (Keeps the metal bail cover up so line does not get stuck when casting.

Note: This is important cause the metal bail cover must rise enough so that the line casts smoothly. (A complaint about this product. But when calibrated correctly it is quite good for what it is)

2) The little **** that the crank gear plastic housing will fit into (Must be on top when you put the whole bail back in. The crank shaft lip fits into that ****.You'll get it when you see it.

Remove the panel screws (2) as you did. Pop out the crank shaft (copper). **** is in top when replacing. (remember that). Remove the bail. On the top of the bail there is a screw. ( becareful and remember how the little metal bail spring in situated here. Turn upside down with metal bail cover in your palm as it conects to the bail spring). Pull off metal bail cover. The plastic line holder actually comes apart and holds a lot more line than you think. Replace line. Feed the line back up the rod. Assemble the opposite.

What causes the fishing reel to skip teeth when retrieving line?


I went fishing with a commercial fisherman. I had a freshwater spinning reel and we were fishing for mackerel and Pollack. He told me pulling fish upwards from the bottom would damage the teeth on the retrieve because a spinning reel is designed to pull fish towards you at an angle, whereas in boat fishing you are hauling from below. After bringing up 3 lots of line with 4 to 6 mackerel on feathers, the teeth started to skip. He said "I did tell you". I wasn't too worried as it was a very cheap reel. The next week I bought a Penn 10 which was what he recommended.

Basically you have stripped the ends of the teeth. Depending on the quality of the reel, you may be able to get spares, or otherwise you upgrade.

Its 32 pages long so its too much to put the manual here.. good luck!!!

Labels are not printing correctly


Brother P-Touch tape label maker doesn't print right.

I believe it's a faulty tape. I put in a new tape, reset the machine and it's now printing fine. It wasn't the reseting - I tried that before.
