Spincasting reels differ from normal spinning reels in that the spool of the fishing reel is usually encased. This type of reel is normally cast with a push of a button, which disengages the line. To engage the line, all the angler does is turn the handle a little to re-engage the spool. The limited line capacity, size and overall utility of this type of fishing reel should be restricted to freshwater fishing applications as well as teaching novices the fine art of casting and fishing. Another important note is that a spin casting reel should sit atop the fishing rod and the handle of the reel on the right side of the reel for right-handed anglers.
Whether you are left or right handed, the handle on the modern spinning reel is reversible. Because of this, anglers have greatly increased control to the rod itself. Spinning rods are popular for catching pike, trout, walleye, perch, eel and zander. After examining the information above, the best choice of fishing reel for beginners is the fly fishing reel. Fly fishing reels are the most popular because of their simplicity. They will save you headaches that are provided by the other two types. Spinning reels would be my second choice of reel because they are easy to use as well without a steep learning curve. And finally, please try to avoid purchasing a bait casting reel until you become a veteran angler.
Casting Reels: When fished in freshwater, this type of fishing reel is commonly known as a baitcast, baitcaster or baitcasting reel. Some people tend to break up the two words into bait-cast, caster and casting. Whichever your preference is, you are still referring to the same reel. When these types of reels are fished in saltwater, they are typically characterized by function and features. For deep sea fishing, casting reels are known as conventional fishing reels and anglers have created descriptive labels for these such as star-drag, lever-drags, high-speed, jigging, big-game, two-speed & trolling reels. Spinning Reels: There are two types of spinning reels that make up this category of reels, which happens to be the most popular category of reels. There is the enclosed-spool spincast, spincaster or spincasting reel, which should be used for freshwater fishing and teaching kids or novice anglers how to fish.
But before you are out there shopping for the reels, isnt it better to know what types of reels go together with what particular style of fishing! If you are a pro and just browsing through, you are well aware of it but the ones who are starting off might require some assistance in this regard and hence we would elaborate a little. Spinning fishing reels are ideal for long distance casting, works well for light lures, a wide range of range of baits and do not backlash. These are open faced reels with fixed spools that do not revolve while you are casting or retrieve. In order to retrieve the line, you have to turn the reel handle. The bail will revolve round the spool and the line is placed evenly onto the spool. For small pan fish with the lightest pound test lines to heavy duty lines for surf casting and trolling- these reels are most recommended.
