Quicker option, no mess no fuss to thread the nylon into the dacron is to use a hollow splicing needle, straight and true and when you get the hang of it it never wants to punch through the wall of the dacron.

I also found that 2 blunt Darning needles on either end of the dacron/spectra makes extremely short work of the Tanaka splice

Great pic tutorial Brett, you're going to love the 200lbs Spectra and the options it gives with the windon and it's not much more expensive than the Dacron (for what it offers vs what it costs you can't go wrong)
