I have an old 4' 6" ultra light spinning rod that my daughter used when she was a munchkin...actually, she never stopped using it until she "outgrew" fishing at 16 years old. I have all the faith in the world she will find her way back but, until then, that rod is MINE!
I may take the advice on getting the replacement line because it costs as much as buying the other yarn--even if I get a lot more. It just isn't worth it.
I have three more questions:
1. Where do you tie the line onto the spinning rod?
2. This rod seems extremely, well, I don't know how to describe it. I tried casting with nothing on it and the tip kept wiggling for a little while after both the back cast and the forward cast. Is this not a good choice for a practice rod?
3. Finally, I assume you can practice false casting and double hauling with this outfit? I know these probably aren't the "best" thing to be practicing but I figured I would ask. I have a nice 35-40 foot, uh, space to toss line into. (Who cares if it IS over a dining room table, the sofa, several Lenox vases, and a fat cat? If a vase falls, I blame the cat.)
