A reel should be equipped withnylon thread, a monofilament of 0.30 mm in diameter is recommended for beginners because it is easier to manage and above all on a reel it will be possible to wind 200 meters of line, perfect for any type of fishing (even from a boat!).

Not everyone knows, but to use onefishing poleTwo types of nylon monofilaments are required, the first is tied to the reel (the main line) and the other is the so-calledfinal line.

Beginners should also buy a disgorger, that is a tool that will help you detach the fish from the hook once it has been pulled.

For the first attempts, choose a day with little wind and block the reel, so as to simulate only the movement of the launch…. better if you make the first attempts with the reel closed otherwise the risk that the line will knot on itself is high!

After trying the classic casting movement several times (with the reel locked), when you are familiar with your fishing rod and its size, you can try thelaunchreal.

How to cast with the fishing rod?Unlock the reel and carefully stop the line with the index finger of your right hand. With his left hand, he ensures the opening of the bow.

Bring the rod back while holding the reel upwards, when bringing the fishing rod back, your right hand must reach you approximately at the level of your forehead. At the same time, the left hand grasps the lower handle of thefishing pole. Keep in mind that the grip must be firm.

The movement of the throw is not only given by the power of your arms but is also accompanied by the movement of the body.
