Step 2. Thread the mono through the eyes of the rod.
Step 3. Tie the mono around the spool.
Step 4. Reel until the spool is nearly full.
Step 5. Strip all the mono off and re spool with braid
Step 5 is optional but highly recommended

Mike, thanks for your reply. In Step 1, am I correct to asume that you do not allow the spool to turn? Also, to prevent the twisting should the line come off the spool in a clockwise direction or a counterclockwise direction?

99% of the time. Reel several yards on, then strip off some line and see if it twists. If so flip the spool of line.

I am not sure that this will always apply. I have several spools of Stren monofilament. Also a spool of Berkley Trilene. On the Stren, with the lable
facing up the line is wound on the spool in a ccw direction. Therefore, it would come off the spool in a cw diection. The Berkley Trilene is wound on the spool in the opposite direction. Seems like the folks who make monofilament would get together and all wind their spools in the same direction. Wyatt B.

It does not really matter at first. Reel some line onto the spool, stop and look. If line is starting to twist, flip the spool over. Reel more line and stop, look, if all is good keep reeling. Stop again after 30 secs. or so. If line is twisting flip the spool again, if not keep reeling.
Bottom line; you stop to check for line twist several times while filling the reel.
