Default I NEED HELP (I'm sorry I didn't know where to post my question :( )

Alright,
I just bought this fly fishing kit:
- Single Action Fly reel
- 9' 4-piece #5/#6 Weight Rod
- IM-6 Graphite construction
- 30 yards of weight foward fly line
- 50 yeards of 20 lb.Backing
- 7 1/2 4x Tapered Leader

And I have NO IDEA how to TIE the lines with each other, (I heard I must use all 3 kind of lines)
And how long each one should be.
Please if someone could explain me how and based in what(for example, if the rode is bigger, use more line) I should tie the lines.

I used to fish a lot with regular fish rodes (http://www.****.ro/img/article/31/articlethumb/231.jpg )
So before start rolling the line in the reel, there is like a little clip to make sure that the line is not going away in case your cast uses all the line.
And now I have this kind of reel and I have no idea. Should I tie around it? or just start rolling?

Thanks in advanced for the answers!

1: Backing to Reel
2: Flyline to backing
3: Another Flyline to backing knot

I like those nifty little nylon loops to attach my flyline to leader, get one of those and attatch it to the end of your flyline. Then tie a perfection loop in the thick end of the leader if there isnt one there already.

Hope this helps

You attatch the tippet to the end of your leader and then to your fly. This way everytime you tie/retie a fly on you arnt cutting off some of your leader.

You want the spool to be filled to capacity just like you would a spinning reel.
