Spinning reels are the most popular and widely used fishing reels out on the market. They have superior performance and are pretty easy to use. Often times, these types of reels have the capabilities of being able to move the handle to either side of the reel. These reels also hang from the underside of the rod. Spinning fishing reels are normally used with up to a 10 pound test line. Spare spools can also be purchased for accommodating different pound test lines. A person may decide part of the way through a fishing outing, that they want to switch out their line for the purpose of fishing a different species or weight of fish. This is where having an extra spool or two could come into play. Again, the drag is an important factor on these reels. The drag will apply a certain amount of pressure on a hooked fish, and at the same time, it lets out some line during the fight.
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.
There are many different types, brands and sizes of fishing reels to use for fishing for all different types of fish and bodies of water. Choosing the best fishing reel for the type of fish you are hunting is important, yet can be confusing. This article will discuss the best choices of fishing reels to use for a fun and successful day of fishing. Your first step in choosing a fishing reel is knowing where and how you will be fishing. For example, there is a special type of reel you would need if you are going to be fly fishing. Alternatively, if you are going to be casting your fishing line out, then you will want to choose the best spinning reel.
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.
