Keep it Simple: 

Beginner anglers need easy to-use-gear — spinning rods, easy and effective tackle, and line that is easy to tie — the Trilene XL offers superior knot strength and monofilament is one of the easiest lines to tie and fish with. For beginner anglers with spinning gear, look for 6- or 8-pound test to start, and increase the size as needed. Smaller diameter line will cast better with less twists and kinks and works well for a variety of different baits.
