    Nets are a must as you can very easily snap the line, pull the hook out the fishes mouth or occassionally break the rod if your really unlucky. Just make sure its got a good reach on it (4-6 feet) and when its on a peir a drop net is the only way to go, especially if you hit into a biggen! Plus using a net means far less damage to the fish. Best to get them from a tackle shop too as you'll be able to ask how to use them and get an answer straight away. Plus maybe take the rod down and ask them directly as they can explain the best casting action, weights of lures and style of retreival of each lure etc..

    Good luck

    this rod is made for small multiplier reels and for one handed casting, more american style than uk, ideal for trying drop shot fishing (google it) or use off a kayak, beware of large fish as it will test the power you have in your wrist

    Light spinning rods can be great fun. For me from a pier is the perfect place. A small drilled bullet with a eddystone eel attached cuts down your costs and pollock love them (black with red tail.) Tobys & dexter wedges also good a bit more expensive though. Floated sand eel or mackeral strip, often down the side of the pier is the best spot for pollock, coalies, wrasse and occasional codling (great sport for mackeral in the summer.) If there is a clean sandy bottom stick on a drilled bullet some beads and mackeral belly and there is a chance of some flatties. Tight lines.
