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.
Spinning reels, whether freshwater or saltwater spinning reels, share one thing in common that differs from conventional fishing reels. When casting a spinning fishing reel, the fishing line is cast off the reel spool in a circular unraveling, around a stationary spool. Casting reels on the other hand unravel with a straighter motion, with the spool of the reel in freespool, where the spool of the reel spins as the line comes off. This free-spinning motion of the conventional casting reel spool often leads to messy line tangles if the spool is not controlled with the appropriate thumb pressure. The tangle free casting is what probably makes spinning fishing reels the most popular type of fishing reel.
The first known history of a fishing reel are from about 1195 c.e. in Chinese records and paintings. In England fishing reels first appeared around the mid-1650s. By the 1760s, tackle shops in London were offering a multiplying or gear-retrieved reels. George Snyder, a Kentucky native is credited with inventing the first fishing reel in America around 1820. A bait casting design that quickly became popular with anglers. Bait casting reels or conventional reels from the 1600s, came into wide use by anglers during the 1870s. Early reels were operated by inverting the reel and back winding to retrieve line. The reel handle was positioned on the right side, as had become customary; models with left-hand retrieval are become more popular. A big game reel is a kind of bait cast reel for heavy saltwater fishing. Not designed for casting, but used for trolling on the open ocean.
