Fly fishing reels have been defined as both science and art. Of the three types of reels fly fishing reels are the most expensive. If you have already purchased an expensive fly rod you may be tempted to saving a few dollars when purchasing a fly reel. Technically you can buy a fly fishing reel for $15 - $1000. However if you purchase one for under $50 then your purchase will be basically worthless. Purchasing one between $150-$200 should last for life.
Spinning reels were in use in North America in the 1870s. Developed for the use of flies for trout or salmon fishing. Mitchell Reel Company introduced the first modern commercial spinning reel in 1948. The Mitchell 300 was designed with the face of the spool forward in a fixed position below the rod. A line pickup was used to retrieve line; an anti-reverse lever prevented the crank handle from turning when a fish is pulling line from the spool. Most spinning reels operate best with a limp flexible fishing line.
