The Spool knot  is used to attach the mainline to the spool. When attaching braided line it's advisable to make several extra wraps around the line.
Always leave yourself enough working line to leave a decent tail-end to grip. Lubricate knots with saliva or water before pulling tight.
Pull knots as tight as possible. Do not cut the tail too close to the knot.
