I bought a push button kid’s fishing rod. How do I hook up the line?

I got a Batman fishing rod for my 3 year old–push button. There is line in it and a plastic fish came with it so he would always have a ‘fish’ to reel in.

I have no idea how to hook it up. Do I thread it through the eyelets and just tie the fish on? I was practicing casting the line and it won’t cast. Is that because there is no weight on it yet?
