How to: Use a Spinning Reel


Hi. Today we are talking about how to use a spinning
rod and reel. Spinning rod and reels are very useful, very
popular and you can use it in all different types of fishing situations. The one we are using today has light tackle
on it because we are doing some inshore fishing. As you can see, we have the long rod here
and then the reel is mounted on the bottom of the rod. Now, to hold the reel for the spinning rod
and reel, you are going to put the reel in between each of your two fingers. Then, to cast, you’ll flip the bail, which
is this metal part right here, to where it is open. Put your finger on the line to hold the line
in place and now you can cast. Before you cast, you always want to check
around you and make sure you are not going to get stuck on anything. You should be able to put the rod back behind
you, flip out the line and let go with your finger at the same time and then close the
bail so that the line does not continue to go out. Reel in a little bit and, hopefully, you’ll
get something on the end of the line.
