Bait Casting Reels. Contrary to fly fishing reels bait casting reels are extremely complicated. These reels are not designed for beginners or children and will cause you serious headaches.
Spinning Reel: Perhaps the easiest type of reel to use is the spinning reel. The essential idea for the spinning reel is that the spool holding line remains stationary and a bail revolves about the spool winding line. These reels are very versatile in that they come in sizes suitable for everything from ultralight models to heavy duty salt water models. Matching reel pole and line is quite important for these reels. Most are adaptable for left and right hand fishermen. Casting is very simple and is perhaps the easiest reel for a novice fisherman to learn to cast. One final aspect of these reels is that they are available in differing gear ratios. A 4:1 ratio would mean that one turn of the handle would generate 5 turns of the bail. If you will be fishing lures that need to be retrieved more quickly (buzz bait for example) use a higher gear ratio reel.
