These reels are used frequently by fishermen for larger game-fish. The offerings presented by fishermen that use smaller baits and lures are not conducive easily to a bait-casting reel. Again, matching reel, pole, and line is quite important. These reels are also available in different gear ratios to meet whatever need you might have. At the most basic level of fishing reels is the fly fishing reel. Most, consist simply of a spool that turns one time for each crank of the handle. They do have many options beyond this level of simplicity. For example, where larger fish will be caught, a drag system may be necessary. Also, "large arbor" reels are available that hold more line. Of all the things that are expensive in fly fishing, this is one that does not necessarily need to be. Reels are matched to the fly line weights that will be used.
When it comes to fishing reels, there are really just a few main types to choose from. Spinning, spincasting, baitcasting, and fly reels. There are different styles and variations of each. Choosing good quality, brand name fishing reels are a major key in ensuring a great fishing experience. Spincasting reels are great for beginners and kids alike. They work well and are easy to use. These reels have a covered body and sit on top of the rod. Spincast reels tend to have small line guides and straight handles. These reels perform especially well while fishing for different types of panfish.
Spinning reels were in use in North America in the 1870s. Developed for the use of flies for trout or salmon fishing. Mitchell Reel Company introduced the first modern commercial spinning reel in 1948. The Mitchell 300 was designed with the face of the spool forward in a fixed position below the rod. A line pickup was used to retrieve line; an anti-reverse lever prevented the crank handle from turning when a fish is pulling line from the spool. Most spinning reels operate best with a limp flexible fishing line. Fly fishing reels or centrepin reels are mainly used for fly fishing. They traditionally are simple in mechanical design; little has changed from the patented designed by Charles F. Orvis in 1874. A fly reel is normally used by pulling line off the reel with one hand, while casting the rod with the other hand. To slow a fish, the angler applies hand pressure to the rim of the spool ("known as palming the rim"). Early fly reels had no drag, but a click/pawl mechanism to keep the reel from overrunning when line is pulled from the spool. In recent years improvements have been made for better reels and drag for larger fish. Saltwater fly reels designed for use in an ocean environment are normally larger in diameter for a larger line and backing for long runs of big game ocean fish.
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.
