In this Outdoor Recreation video tutorial you will learn how to put a fly fishing rod and reel together. Steve shows you how to do this. Every reel has a reel seat and most fly rods have a slot under the grip into which one end of the reel seat slides in. At the lower end of the rod, push the ring over the reel seat and tighten he screw on the rod. This should be nice and tight. Before your fishing, make sure it is tight. To put the rod together, take the next segment of the rod and push it in firmly into the furrow of the previous segment. Make sure that the guides on the rod are in one line. That's it.
