Fifine Renaud Fishing Reels April 04, 2018 21:23:15
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.
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.
