how to use vang?

Hi, I am very new to sailing and I have a few questions that I can't seem to figure out. I have a 10' catboat that is of home built plywood construction. I read several books to teach myself to sail and it went very well the few times I took my boat out in light wind conditions. My question is how do you correctly use the boom vang? I set it by putting some tension on the vang before I set out sailing and I did not adjust it. Is this the correct way of doing it or should the vang be adjusted differently when running or reaching?
