I find it real hard to fish without the proper equipment. How about you? The right fishing reel is one of the most essential components of a person’s fishing gear. The problem of which fishing reel to use comes because there are so many manufacturers and so many different types of fishing reels. Not including the fly-fishing reel there are three main kinds of reels – spin cast, baitcasting, and spinning reels and they all have their pros and cons.

Using a fishing reel for the first time can be frustrating, especially if the style of reel is new to you. Beginners often start with a closed-face, spin cast reel which helps keep the line from tangling and is basically push the button and throw the line out. This is the type of reel I started my son using and once he mastered the art of casting, and it is an art, I moved him up to a spinning reel

The spinning reel is probably the most popular style. With these the reel hangs under the rod and the line is held on an open spool. The line is controlled by a bail for casting and drag gears for controlling the fight. Casting takes a little practice, but keeping your forefinger pressing the line against the handle before casting will prevent the line from coming off the spool. It is a little bit harder to master than the spin cast reel but once conquered very few go back to the spin cast reel

Then there is the baitcasting reel that many weekend fishermen stay clear of. The baitcast reel takes a little more effort to learn to use. Therefore, a bit of practice is in order to become accurate and avoid backlashes in your line. Whatever you do, do not expect to buy a baitcasting reel and head out fishing without first learning how to handle it. If you do bring a back up rod and reel. This kind of fishing reel has become the favorite for most pro-bass fishermen because of both the distance and the accuracy you can achieve from them once you learn how to effectively cast your baitcasting reel.
