Conclusion. After examining the information above the best choice of fishing reel for beginners is the fly fishing reel. Fly fishing reels are the most popular because of their simplicity. They will save you headaches that are provided by the other two types. Spinning reels would be my second choice of reel because they are easy to use as well without a steep learning curve. And finally please try to avoid purchasing a bait casting reel until you become a veteran angler.
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.
Spincasting reels are great for beginners and kids alike. They work well and are easy to use. These reels have a covered body and sit on top of the rod. Spincast reels tend to have small line guides and straight handles. These reels perform especially well while fishing for different types of panfish.
Bait-Casting Reel. A bait casting reel works by allowing the weight of the lure or bait to pull line off of a revolving spool. Although the skill necessary to use such a reel was at one time quite challenging for anglers willing to spend the money there are now systems on reels that prevent the backlash that plagued novice anglers attempting to master their use. These reels are used frequently by fishermen for larger game-fish. The offerings presented by fishermen that use smaller baits and lures are not conducive easily to a bait-casting reel. Again matching reel pole and line is quite important. These reels are also available in different gear ratios to meet whatever need you might have.
Spin Cast Reel. Spin cast reel is also known as "Closed Face" reel. This type of reel is typically an inexpensive type of reel and by far the easiest one to use. This type of fishing reel is best for beginners. The set is a trouble free unit and it will help you to hold whatever you catch. Spin cast fishing reels come with a pushbutton line release for casting and an enclosed "nosecone" where the line comes out of the reel. This type of fishing reel generally mounts on top of the rod. This reel is a preferable choice for casual anglers and is perfect for small to medium sized fish.
Spin casting fishing reels are arguable the easiest to use and you can easily learn but they have some failings. But as these types of reels dont have much line capacity thus its unsuitable to render them for fishing that requires a lot of line. Another problem with spin cast fishing reel is that they dont have a very good drag system and the gears in these reels are usually cast plastic or white metal. Typically if accuracy is needed then this type of reels is not desirable.
