just found my old mans spinning rod and reel, never used one before, whats the beat way to use it and what do i put on the line??
The best way to use it would probably be to buy a few poppers and some wire trace, put the rod in a bazuka case, go to Gatwick and get on a plane to Cuba, go to the Melia pier and start fishing.
A bit of a 'how long is a piece of string' type question, but here is some basic advice. As has been said, you can use lures or plugs, spinners, artificial eels, feathers and a whole lot of different techniques depending on what you are trying to target and where you are.
