How To Cast

Casting is possibly the most important part once you have set up your rod. With being able to cast you would never get a rig into the water and get your bait to be taken by the fish. Once mastered casting becomes second nature, just like tying your shoelaces! Follow this simple guide to casting, get down to an empty lake or field near your house and practice; the more you practice the better you will become.
To cast accurately you will need to stand facing the water that you are going to be casting to and hold the reel seat with two fingers above the reel and two below. Next, trap the line with the tip of your index finger and open the bail arm to allow the line to leave the spool when cast. Hold the butt of the rod with your spare hand, check the area behind you is clear and point the rod behind you. In one swift, smooth motion pull down on the rod butt and push forward with the hand holding the reel. This will give you the power to get your float or feeder into the lake.  Remember you must release the line when the rod is at a 45 degree angle. A helpful tip is to stop the line coming off the spool with your finger just before the rig hits the water. This will straighten out the rig, cutting down tangles. Lastly, close the bail arm, put your rod on the rest and you're fishing!
