Fly fishing reels are a more basic designed reel with few moving parts. They can be found with an open or closed spool design. Having an open spool will allow the line to dry much quicker and as a result will weigh noticeably less. Fly reels come in a standard size and large arbor designs. The larger arbor designed reels tend to pull the line in faster and could come in handy on larger bodies of water. These reels also may have interchangeable spools and have the capability of moving the handle from one side to the other. The drag system is an important factor and can have a cork disk or click design. Enclosed drags normally last longer. You also want to make sure the drag is easily adjusted.

The essential idea for the spinning reel is that the spool holding line remains stationary and a bail revolves about the spool winding line.

Spinning reels are the most popular and widely used fishing reels out on the market. They have superior performance and are pretty easy to use. Often times these types of reels have the capabilities of being able to move the handle to either side of the reel. These reels also hang from the underside of the rod. Spinning fishing reels are normally used with up to a 10 pound test line. Spare spools can also be purchased for accommodating different pound test lines. A person may decide part of the way through a fishing outing that they want to switch out their line for the purpose of fishing a different species or weight of fish. This is where having an extra spool or two could come into play. Again the drag is an important factor on these reels. The drag will apply a certain amount of pressure on a hooked fish and at the same time it lets out some line during the fight.
The basic purpose of a fishing reel is to hold line and then to wind it back in when either a fish has been hooked or you are needing to bring in your line for another cast or to quit fishing. Different kinds and sizes of line are used. Casts are different for different kinds of fishing. Also the necessary cranking power varies by type of fishing. For these reasons and for other reasons different mechanical set-ups for reels have developed over time.
