Place the fishing reel that needs to be changedona table or in your lap with the reel facing up. Loosenthescrew that is on the opposite side of the handle. The screwshouldcome off by hand, but some models may need a screwdriver tohelploosen the screw. Unscrew the screw on the reel, andremoveit from its hole.

That means a right-handed casterwillmake a cast and then switch the rod to the lefthand so thereel can be cranked with the right hand. Thatsoundscumbersome, but long-time baitcasters know that it'squickand simple once you get used to it.
