    Yes to both.

    You won't be able to shoot line until you can make a cast in which the line bounces back towards you at the end of the cast. Hold on the line with your on rod hand at the end of the cast. That bounce back is caused by excess energy and momentum.

    Then you can release the line by forming an "O ring" with your line hand as described below.
