Fly fishing reels are a more basic designed reel with few moving parts. They can be found with an open or closed spool design. Having an open spool will allow the line to dry much quicker and as a result will weigh noticeably less. Fly reels come in a standard size and large arbor designs. The larger arbor designed reels tend to pull the line in faster and could come in handy on larger bodies of water. These reels also may have interchangeable spools and have the capability of moving the handle from one side to the other. The drag system is an important factor and can have a cork disk or click design. Enclosed drags normally last longer. You also want to make sure the drag is easily adjusted.
Freshwater fly fishing reels are thin and light so that they are easy to carry and hold. Some are equipped with a double handle for better stability when fishing in strong river currents. Saltwater fly fishing rod and reels are normally divided in section for easy transport. These rods also are made of materials like fiberglass and graphite that provides for more strength and durability.

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.
Closed Face Reel. A closed face reel is a type of spinning reel. There are a couple of major differences between a closed face and an open face spinning reel besides the cover giving a closed face its name. One is the cast is usually done via a push-button release for the line. Second but very much related is the relative ease of a closed face and especially so for children. With the open face reel a bail is flipped and the line must be held by a finger until release. With a closed face the holding of the line is not necessary. The only skill that must be learned is the timing with the push button. Kids can pick this up very quickly. So the choice of a reel is one that should be made keeping in mind the type of fishing you will do the skill required to use the reel and cost of course.
