Default 3 Questions - Tippet, Leader, Retreive

Okay, I probably seem like a real idiot, but I just bought a used rod off kijiji and can't see to figure out how to switch the reel from right to left hand retrieve - it's an Okuma 7/8... does anybody know how?

Also, what sort of leader and tippet should I buy to use for fishing Steelhead with an 8wt 10ft Scott? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Schlick.

Here's how it's done with my Okuma. Remove the spool. Remove the spool cap. Inside you will have a =ball bearing-one way roller bearing-ball bearing= in a row. Start pushing with your finger until ball bearing comes out the other end. Keep pushing until one way roller bearing comes out. Reverse one way roller bearing (flip over).
