Holding a spinning rod

Recommended Posts

I am very surprised at how many of you hold the reel seat between index and middle finger.  Most spinning reels are designed to be held between middle and ring finger; the space between the bail and the reel seat is designed so that your index finger can pick up the line easily while holding the reel seat between middle and ring finger.  Unless you have big hands, it would be more difficult to reach the line with your index finger when it's farther behind the bail.  I have average hands for a 5'8" guy, and I would find it pretty difficult to reach the line to pick it up.
