lightweight fishing gear for backpacking Directions for use:  Hold the handline in your reel hand and point the edge in the direction you are going to cast.  Using your other hand, hold the fishing line about 2 feet from the tackle (eg, weight, lure, practice ball).  Swing the tackle around your head and release as you would a lasso.  Retrieve the line by wrapping the line around the handline. Retrieving the line is similar to reeling in a kite.

Concentrate when fishing.  A solid strike requires that you quickly give out line to avoid breaking the line.  You do not have the drag of the reel or flex of the pole to protect you.  As with a rod and reel, give the fish line when it runs and take in slack when the fish moves toward you.
