Basically a reel also called a reel is a mechanical device that allows us to use a roll handle, avoiding tangles of the fishing line and facilitating comfort to the fisherman. Many young fishermen and a woman are exposed to fishing at an early age usually using a very low-cost childs rod and reel. Since the quality of fishing gear can be expensive, most parents do not want to invest in it for a child until they are sure they will like the sport. As children grow and stick with fishing, then it becomes necessary to buy the right type of rod and reel for the type of fishing you are going to be doing. Having the correct reel will make all the difference as to whether or not you have a successful and enjoyable fishing adventure. You will find the right fishing reel after knowing and understanding the four basic models. These are the spin casting reel, the real spinning, the bait casting coil and the fishing reel fly. Despite your motivation, passion or appetite can lead you to the fishing hole, all fishermen’s reasoning is the same for catching fish! And although this underlying truth was said, the form and style (the way of playing) is quite different. Depending on the style of fishing is used, we can not use a baitcasting reel for a spinning rod, or a spinning reel for a fly fishing rod because they are completely different styles and each element is designed to mate with the other, so that it guarantees a correct and exact operation. That is why there are different types of reels each has its physical difference with respect to the others and are handled in different ways, they all fulfill the same function but each fisherman chooses the fishing style with which he most identifies himself or simply with the that more comfortable you feel.
Currently there are these types of reels:
Spincast reel: Ideal for beginners in the world of sport fishing, this reel is known as “closed face” and it is because the part where the line is rolled is closed with a lid whose main function is not to allow the line gets tangled. Ideal for kids and newbies, this is the easiest reel to use. It is located on the upper part of the cane seat.
Front reel (spinning): It is the most common of all, it is also very easy to use, sometimes it brings another coil to facilitate the change of the line, ideal for long casts, because this reel is open facilitating the exit of the line freely. The spinning rods for this reel have the largest guides precisely to facilitate the passage of the line through them and thus make a cast that covers greater distance. This reel is located at the bottom of the rod.
Drum or rotary reel (Baitcasting): Its domain requires practice because in the cast, the reel rotates with a horizontal axis releasing the line and can easily entangle the line if the reel is not properly calibrated. It is ideal for fishing with soft or hard lures, it is also known as a semi-open reel. This reel is located on the top of the rod. The reel bait launcher is harder to use and has a lot of practice to learn. If the reel is set according to your specifications with the right weight line, then using the reel bait launcher becomes incredibly easier. Like some spinning reels, you will have to use your thumb to start and stop the reel. Also, like the spinning reel, The reel will hang down and not up to the casting. By applying the pressure of your thumb through the casting, you can slow down the reel fishing line and precision casting in open water. –
Drum or rotary reel (trolling): Very similar to baitcasting, but are generally used for fishing on board and letting drag the bait of the boat, very used for large fish because they are built with high strength materials, another feature of these is that they have a special brake and have large line storage capacity, some have a system that allows counting the laps that are given in the collection and the amount of line released in a cast. This reel is located at the top of the rod.
Fly fishing reel: Like all the previous reels its main function is to store the line, but with a particular difference, it is very frequent to see the fly fisherman does not use the handle to turn the reel and bring the fish if not that uses the hand to recover the line attracting the fish. the line in this style is completely different from the other styles, this reel does not have the mechanical functions that the other styles have because it is a completely different style of fishing and in this style the single cast is an art. The fly fishermen routinely catch trout, salmon, pike, bass, carp and some other marine species. When a fishing reel fly is released, the reel actually has nothing to do with the cast. This is to say that the reel stays on the line while you pull the line of the reel, keeping it loose and close to your feet. You will have a connection to the line you want to launch. Pulling up the lever, The coil spring (reel) pulls the line of the back while your hand, again, the drag controls. With the practice of fly fishing gives more game for the sport of fishing.
RELATIONSHIP OF A REEL: With the exception of the fly fishing reels, the reels handle a relationship. for example some reels in the market have the following description (ratio) 6.5: 1 this means that with 1 turn of the crank 6.5 turns of line are wound in the coil, the relationships vary depending on the number of ball bearings and the design, because the more balineras is softer and more line is collected with less physical effort, that is, it will have a better relationship
