The reel size is important as well. Lighter lines call for smaller reels, and vise versa. In most cases ten pound test line is as tough as you need, so your reel should not exceed the diameter needed by ten pound test line. However, if you are into serious saltwater fishing you may need a bigger reel and line. One of the most important fishing reel parts are the gears as these are what connect the crank to the spool. The ratio of the gears determines how many revolutions the spool makes when one revolution of the crank is made. And example would be a ratio or 4:1. This means that turning the crank once makes the spool turn four times. Having a lower ratio, such as 3:1 is advantageous for reeling in bigger fish as it provides more torque. The downside is that the process will be slower. For smaller fish a higher ratio can be used since less torque is needed. The upside is that you can reel the fish in faster.
Open face spinning fishing reel is a bit difficult to use than the Spin Cast, but it comes in a wider variety of sizes. Users can choose them according to preferences. These are available in ultra-light models to be attached with smaller tackle. This light version can be used to catch panfish. And it is equally useful to catch bigger gamefish such as "Bull Reds" in the surf. It works perfectly when someone needs a longer casting. Anglers prefer the open face spinning reels more, as the line capacity of them is much higher than that of spin cast. They have got a much smoother drag too. This capability is required for finesse of fishing and for long running fish.
Because of these advantages, virtually all serious veteran fisherman use single action fly reels. If you are serious about fishing and want a fly reel that will save you from serious headaches and last a long time, then consider purchasing a single action fly reel. Contrary to fly fishing reels, bait casting reels are extremely complicated. These reels are not designed for beginners or children and will cause you serious headaches. Bait casting reels are used by experienced veteran fisherman who catch big fish such as salmon, bass and pike. Even though these reels are great for catching large fish, it does take significant time to perfect the casting technique. But bait casting reels do have the advantage of farther casting, better leverage and more precise lure placement. Basically, bait casting reels are made for catching bigger fish because they are made for heavier lures and heavier lines.
A closed face reel is a type of spinning reel. There are a couple of major differences between a closed face and an open face spinning reel besides the cover giving a closed face its name. One, is the cast is usually done via a push-button release for the line. Second, but very much related, is the relative ease of a closed face and especially so for children. With the open face reel, a bail is flipped and the line must be held by a finger until release. With a closed face, the holding of the line is not necessary. The only skill that must be learned is the timing with the push button. Kids can pick this up very quickly.
