How to Set up a Spinning Reel?


Start by winding the required sized fishing line onto the reel. Open the bail of the reel by pulling it to the side and then use its arbour knot to tie it to the spool. After you have closed the bail turn the handle to wind line onto the spool. Place the roller and bail wire control of the reel to the top of the spool and near the rod. Rotate the roller and bail. Pick the line from the reel with the fore finger holding the rod. Place the line between the finger and handle of the rod to prevent movement. Open the bail of the reel to allow the line to unwind freely off the spool. Holding the line with the fore finger prevents the line from un-spooling. Bring the rod back to the side and then forward again. As the rod approaches the direction in where the lure should go, release the fore finger and let the line to un-spool. When the lure reaches the water, close the spool by turning the handle of the reel. Retrieve the lure by turning the handle in a motion.
