Your doing well as you have only just started !! well done :clap2::clap2:
Slightly of topic but just trying to help,
The rod rest you have is a good one, I have one just the same, best I have ever owned.
Make sure you wipe the front legs down before you push them back in as when you wash it down they can be forgotten and you will end up with corroded legs !!.
All the best Rob
