The drag is set by turning the knob which secures the spool to the reel.

To cast, hold the line against the rod with index finger on right hand. Then flip the bail open which frees the line to come off the spool. The bail, when it gets to a certain point will lock open. When casting, release your finger on the line when the rod gets to 11 o'clock.

Flip the bail back by turning the reel handle -- the bail will pop back over the reel -- then you're ready to reel it in.

The bail is the wire-like device on the top of the reel.

There is probably a button/switch for turning anti-reverse on & off -- when on, this keeps the reel from turning backwards when force is applied to the line.

I think those are the highlights.

    I should add that you cast with the right arm/hand and reel with the left hand. The reel hangs down under the rod at all times. Reel by turning the handle toward the front end of the rod.

    And, this reel (sometimes called "open-faced") uses a rod which has a long straight grip -- not a shorter formed grip such as a closed face reel would use.



    If you've been using closed face reels (cast with right hand, reel with right hand), an open-face reel may feel awkward when reeling with left hand.

How can I set the drag on a shimano R 2000 spinning reel


The letter "R" on a Shimano reel typically indicates it has a rear drag.
you should find a know on the bottom end of your reel that allows you to adjust drag tension. Just Remember to back off or loosen your drag when not using your reel to keep your drag in proper working condition.
