A spin cast reel is a spinning reel with a shell that covers the spool. This type of reel is primarily meant for children and beginners. The first commercial spin cast reels were made by the Denison Johnson Reel Company and Zebco in 1949. Mounted above the rod and fitted with a cone shaped nose that encloses the fixed spool. Spin cast reels operate by pressing the button on the rear of the reel and then the button is released during the forward cast to allow the line to fly off the spool. Pressing the button again will stop the lure at the desired position. Cranking the handle re-engages the line back into the reel.
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.
