An open faced spinning reel takes a bit more skill than an enclosed spinning reel. Yet, they are one of the most popular types of fishing reels. The line is wound around the spool and exposed. Many allow you to unlock the bail and hold the line with your thumb. As you swing your rod out, you can release the line, weight and bait or fly by lifting your thumb at just the right time. Others may have a lever that slides over the line that holds it while you are casting, and releases the line at the right time. Open spinning reels are available for all types of fishing, whether you are fishing on a bank or out in the ocean. Choosing the best fishing reel of this type depends on weight of the fish you desire to catch. You definitely want a spinning reel that can handle heavy weight line if you are trying to catch swordfish! Fishing reels can be very cheap or very expensive. Buying a cheaper fishing reel is not always the best way to go, though. Many cheap models simply do not do their job and can frustrate you while you are trying to relax! A mid-range cost for a fishing reel could be your best bet if you are just starting out as a beginner fisherman or even if you are experienced.
Spare spools are handy if you intend to fish with a range of lines - floating, intermediate and sinking lines are the most popular. For this reason, most manufacturers include at least one spare spool as part of the package. If you buy a reel that is about to be discontinued, play safe and buy a couple of extra spools, as manufacturers may only keep spare spools few years after a reel has been discontinued. The big advantage of large arbor reels is that there are fewer coils in the fly line, and the coils are looser. This means that the loops forming in a fly line with time are fewer, eventually even eliminated by the stretching action of the line. The down side is that you cannot get as much backing on to a large arbour reel. Some manufacturers (such as Cortland) supply both standard and large arbour spools.
Fishing reels are sometimes taken for granted and not many people take time to think about the Intricacies of fishing reel parts. They are the device that brings the fish in, and modern fishing reels are fairly complicated devices. The spinning reel is the most popular version used in fishing today, but it is not always the best choice for many types of fishing. You should never guess as to which reel will be the right choice for you while browsing the aisles are a fishing supply store. Understanding how a fishing reel works can help you determine which are the best options for your needs. Spinning reels and baitcast reels are different, and in either case, it is a good idea to chose the reel with the fewest parts and they have the lower chance of mechanical failure.
Heavier lures allow for fisherman to fish at higher speeds and the heavier lines are great for fighting those big fish such as salmon. Basically, you are able to put more pressure on the line without being afraid of it snapping. One of the reasons that beginners have trouble using a bait casting reel is because the reel actually sits above the rod. Because of this, anglers have to use their thumb to control the spool and lure placement. Beginners also have trouble with backlash. Backlash is what occurs when the line gets tangled in the spool. The steep learning curve of bait casting reels is the biggest disadvantage. It takes a tremendous amount of practice otherwise your line will be tangled in the spool all day long. Although the advantages are clear, the disadvantages far outweigh them. So unless you are a veteran angler, stay away from bait casting reels.
