There are four basic types of fishing tackle and reels: Spincasting tackles are closed reels that sit on top of the fishing line with the seat reel depressed. A spinning tackle is an exposed reel of spool that hangs under a fishing rod with a straight seat. Baitcasting tackles use the same fishing rods as spincasting tackles, although they are usually stiffer, with the bobbin opening and spinning. The fly fishing tackle, the most difficult to throw, uses a long rod and a simple bobbin to raise the string after it has been thrown. Throwing each type of tackle requires its own ability.
Method 1 of 4: Throwing a Spincasting Tackle
Step 1. Twist your string until your bait is 15-30 centimeters from the end of the line
The sinker or bobber attached to the string should also be 15 -30 cm from the end of the fishing line.
Step 2. Hold the fishing rod behind the reel with your thumb resting on the button behind the reel
Most spincasting rods have a resting seat and a trigger-like projection to wrap around your index finger.
Many anglers throw spincasting with the same hand to pull the line. If you hold the rod behind the bobbin while pulling the string, you will need to change hands when you throw
Step 3. Point your body towards the side of the water where you want to cast the hook
You need to angle your body slightly, with your side against the hand holding the rod toward your target.
Step 4. Rotate the fishing rod so that the coil is pointing up
Twisting the rod allows you to flick your wrists when you throw, making your pitch more natural and powerful. Throwing with the bobbin held up makes your throw stiffer and reduces your strength.
Step 5. Press and hold the button firmly
The thread may fall off a little, but it will stay in place. If the thread falls too far, you are not holding the button firmly. Pull your thread and try again.
Step 6. Bend your throwing hand
When you do, lift your fishing rod until the end is slightly past the vertical angle.
Step 7. Sweep the fishing line forward until it reaches eye level
Make an angle of about 30 degrees above the horizontal, or a position like 10 o'clock.
Step 8. Release the buttons
The bait should aim for your target area.
- If your throw hits the water in front of you, it means you're too late to release the button.
- If it flies forward, it means you released the button too quickly.
Press the button again when your bait reaches the goal area. This will put the brakes on the speed of your pass and "fly" it to land where you want it.
Method 2 of 4: Throwing a Spinning Tackle
Step 1. Hold the fishing rod by the reel
Place your index and middle fingers on the coil and your ring and little fingers behind them.
- Unlike spincasting bobbins, spinning reels are designed to be rotated with the opposite hand from the one used for throwing. Since most anglers are right handed, most of these spinning reels are located on the left. Of course you can change hands.
- The spinning line is also slightly longer than the average spincasting line, with the handle very close to the reel, slightly larger than the handle of other fishing rods, allowing your yarn to flow more freely when you throw.
Step 2. Twist the string until your bait is 15 – 30 cm from the end of the line
Step 3. Bend your index finger to lift the thread on the bobbin and press it against the hook
Step 4. Open the coil bail
Bail is a loop of yarn on a rim that is spun outside and behind the bobbin. The bait collects the thread when you pull the thread and thread it into the bobbin. When you open it, you will remove the string so you can throw the bait.
Step 5. Swing the rod back over your shoulders
Step 6. Sweep the fishing line forward, releasing the string as you extend your arms
To help your bait reach its target goal, point your index finger where you want your string to fall. This technique will be difficult to do at first.
- If you're throwing with a long fishing rod used for sea fishing, you'll need to use your throwing hand as a support to support the shaft of the rod when you throw.
- With a spincasting tackle, if you let go too quickly, the thread and bait will fly up. If you release too slowly, the bait will land in the water in front of you.
- Some anglers use a closed spinning coil, the coil is closed as well as the coil in spincasting. In this coil, the trigger on top of the coil acts the same as the button on a regular spincast coil. Grasp the thread with your index finger and hold it against the pacemaker as you pull the plunger back. The rest of the throwing technique is the same as using an open spinning coil.
Method 3 of 4: Casting a Baitcasting Tackle
Step 1. Adjust the coil brake
On the baitcasting coil, there is a centrifugal brake system and a pressure switch. Before throwing, you should adjust the brakes and pressure so that the thread comes out of the bobbin smoothly as you throw.
- Set the brake system to zero. If you don't know how to do it, the salesperson at the fishing shop can show you how to do it on a sample reel.
- With the weight training on the string and the hook pointing to 10 or 11 o'clock, press the button on the bobbin but keep your thumb on the bobbin. The weight must stay in place.
- Shake the tip of the rod. The weight should go down slowly and subtly. If not, set the pressure to that point.
- Set the brake system to about 75 percent of the maximum. You may have to adjust the knob or remove the brim and adjust it directly.
Step 2. Pull the string until your bait is 15-30 cm from the end of the line
Step 3. Hold the fishing rod behind the reel with your thumb on top of the reel
Baitcasting fishing rods are designed the same as spincasting fishing rods. Just like a spincasting fishing rod, many anglers throw it with the same hand to pull it back, so if you choose to hold the rod behind the reel when you pull, you will need to change hands when you throw.
You need to place your thumb at a small angle above the bobbin instead of pressing it flat against the yarn. This will give you more control over the flow of the yarn when you throw
Step 4. Rotate the fishing rod so that the end of the rod is facing up
Just like spincasting gear, this will allow you to use your wrist when throwing. If you throw with the opposite hand, the tip is facing down.
Step 5. Press the button to release the coil
Baitcasting reels made since the 1970s have a mechanism to release the coil from the handle so it doesn't spin when thrown, allowing for a longer throw. The first model had a button on the side of the coil; most newer models provide a release button behind the coil that can be pressed with a thumb.
Step 6. Bend your throwing arm
When you do, lift your fishing line until the tip is slightly past the vertical line.
Step 7. Sweep the fishing line forward towards 10 o'clock
As you do so, lift your thumb from the bobbin so that the weight of your bait pulls the thread off the bobbin as it points toward your destination.
If you're throwing with a baitcasting fishing rod that has a long handle used in the ocean, you can use your other hand as a support to serve as your pitching shaft
Step 8. Press the bobbin with your thumb to stop the bait when it reaches its destination
This is equivalent to pressing a button on the spincasting bobbin to stop the yarn. However, if you don't press down immediately with your thumb, the bobbin will continue to spin after the bait hits the water, making it past the goal you must straighten before you can pull the bait (the brake system on the reel is designed to avoid this, but you should still use your thumb to stop the coil turning.)
- The way to throw a baitcasting tackle is very similar to a spincasting tackle. However, you can control more precisely with the baitcasting tackle than with the spincasting tackle because your thumb rests directly on the thread when braking. However, baitcasting bobbins are not designed to control yarn as easily as spincasting or spinning bobbins. You will need to use yarn that is heavier than 5 kg with baitcasting tackle, and yarn that is thicker than 7 to 8 kg for better control.
- Likewise, baitcasting tackles are best used for throwing baits weighing 3/8 ounces or more, while spincasting tackles are best suited for baits weighing 1/4 ounces or less. If you want to take several fishing rods with you when you go fishing, take a fishing rod with a spincasting reel for a lighter reel and a fishing rod with a baitcasting reel for a heavier reel.
Method 4 of 4: Throwing a Fly-Fishing Tackle
Step 1. Extend the string about 6 meters from the end of the fishing line and place it in front of you
In other types of pitches, you throw a pass; in fly fishing, you throw the string similar to swinging a whip with a weighted end.
Step 2. Pinch the thread on the bobbin on the fishing rod handle with your index and middle fingers
You should hold the fishing rod straight in front of you as you do this, lower the reel, with your thumb resting on the fishing rod handle.
Step 3. Lift the rod to the 10 o'clock position
Step 4. Quickly lift the end of the fishing line, twisting the string behind you
Keeping your upper arms by your side, raise them at a 30-degree angle. Stop raising the fishing rod when your thumb is pointing up; Your arms should also be straight up at this point.
- You have to do this fast enough for the weight and movement of the string to bend the line.
- To make the thread move faster, pull it down over the bobbin with your other hand as you lift the end of the fishing line.
Step 5. Lift the fishing line up far enough to let the string run straight ahead behind you
At first, you need to look back to check if the thread is straight. but eventually you'll be able to feel a slight tug when the yarn is straight.
Step 6. Sweep the rod forward as you pull your elbows down
The rod will move faster, making your forward throw stronger.
You can make the yarn move faster by pulling it down with your other hand
Step 7. Stop your front stroke by jerking your wrist as the rod returns to the 10 o'clock position
Your thumb nails should be flush with your eyes at this point; The stroke should be loud enough that you can feel the tip of the rod whipping forward.
Step 8. Repeat strokes and strokes as necessary to make the yarn move further
Unlike other types of throwing, you can add distance to how far your string is thrown with repeated strokes back and forth.
