Casting Reels

Casting reels are mounted perpendicular to the rod. Fly setups and baitcasting reels are two types of casting reels. While spin casting is easier to master than bait casting or fly casting, exact casting techniques vary as casting style weighs heavily on the type of reel, bait and line used, as well as the species of fish being sought.

Bait-casting Reels

Bait-casting reels can be used to cast a little further and may let the angler place the lure or bait a little more accurately, but you have to thumb the spool to stop the line and that takes some practice. A giant birds nest is not uncommon in novice hands with a baitcasting reel.

Fly Reels

Fly rods are considered to be one of the most difficult sport fishing rods to use. Successfully casting a dry fly requires the user to collect a large amount of float line in the air by making large, sweeping arcs with the rod tip. Once enough of the ribbon-like line for the length of the cast is out of the reel spool and into the air, a last forceful thrust is made to propel the line and fly forward onto the water. This process is referred to as "loading".

Unlike spinning and bait-casting reels, a fly reel is not cast, and is mainly a place to store the line and keep it free from tangles. Line is pulled from the reel, then the rod is waved overhead to work the line out. The artificial fly is worked by retrieving the fly line by hand. When fish are hooked they can then be retrieved by turning the reel handle.
