When it comes to fishing reels there are really just a few main types to choose from. Spinning spincasting baitcasting and fly reels. There are different styles and variations of each. Choosing good quality brand name fishing reels are a major key in ensuring a great fishing experience.
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.
The steep learning curve of bait casting reels is the biggest disadvantage. It takes a tremendous amount of practice otherwise your line will be tangled in the spool all day long. Although the advantages are clear the disadvantages far outweigh them. So unless you are a veteran angler stay away from bait casting reels.
For beginners your choice is simple: the single action fly reel. The single action fly reel is the most popular of the three types because of its simplicity. Also there are not many parts inside of the reel that can break down. Two other advantages of single-action fly reels is that they have more capacity than other fly reels and changing the spool is relatively easy.
Open Face Spinning Reel. Open face spinning fishing reel is a bit difficult to use than the Spin Cast but it comes in a wider variety of sizes. Users can choose them according to preferences. These are available in ultra-light models to be attached with smaller tackle. This light version can be used to catch panfish. And it is equally useful to catch bigger gamefish such as "Bull Reds" in the surf. It works perfectly when someone needs a longer casting.
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.
