Does anyone know how to properly set up a fishing rod with the methods of tying knots for the bobber and hook?

i need to know how to set up the bobber on the fishing rod stick. i heard there are knots for the bobber, but do i have to tie the knots at both ends of the bobber? also, are there other ways to put on the bobber?

How do you use a spinning reel fishing rod properly?

I recently started using a spinning reel fishing rod. How do I use it? The guy at the store explained it kinda vaguely since he didn’t know exactly how to. I flip over the spinning part and grab hold of the line with my finger. When I cast I let go of the line. But when I cast it, it goes forward, and then comes back or stops letting out line. I haven’t been able to cast it more than 15 feet.
Another thing is I repeatedly get bird nests the line on the reel always gets tangled. What am I doing wrong?
