Freshwater reels are for use around inland lakes streams and rivers while saltwater reels are for large bodies of water including oceans and bays. Reels come in three basic styles: casting spinning and fly fishing. Whether you′re after a largemouth bass or a wiley trout you should understand the way your fishing reel works.
Fill Your Reel Just Right. When using a baitcasting reel filling the spool to 90 percent capacity is recommended. This optimizes casting performance. Too much line is likely to increase the chance of backlash while not enough limits casting distance. For spinning reels a good rule of thumb is to fill the spool until there′s at least 1/8 inch of room from the line to the edge of the spool lip. That will let you use the most line capacity without causing line to spring off the spool and form tangles. The 1/8-inch rule applies to spincast reels too but you′ll have to remove the reel′s front cover so you can check the amount of line on the spool.
The drag system of your reel applies friction to the spool. This helps as you cast and while you are attempting to bait a fish particularly larger species. Older models traditionally have a fixed drag that cannot be adjusted spring and pawl drag systems for fly fishing offer some adjustment and have a distinct clicking sound when line is pulled off the reel disc drag systems provide the smoothest type of drag. They are used in many modern fly reels adjustable disc drags allow anglers to make fine adjustments to the level of drag pressure.
