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.
Fly fishing reels or centrepin reels are mainly used for fly fishing. They traditionally are simple in mechanical design; little has changed from the patented designed by Charles F. Orvis in 1874. A fly reel is normally used by pulling line off the reel with one hand while casting the rod with the other hand. To slow a fish the angler applies hand pressure to the rim of the spool ("known as palming the rim"). Early fly reels had no drag but a click/pawl mechanism to keep the reel from overrunning when line is pulled from the spool. In recent years improvements have been made for better reels and drag for larger fish. Saltwater fly reels designed for use in an ocean environment are normally larger in diameter for a larger line and backing for long runs of big game ocean fish.
