                 Spinning Reels
Anglers swear by a spinning reel. The reel consists of a gear compartment, a
bail, an open spool and a handle that can be reversed for a left handed or a
right handed fisherman. It also allows a fisherman to go casting, still fishing
or even trolling. The best line that goes with this particular reel type is a
monofilament line. But in order to make the full use of the reel, one has to be
aware of how to use it. If you want to know what the successful anglers do,
then read on.

The first thing you need to do is open the bail on the reel and pull the line up
through all the guides. Now turn the handle either clockwise or counter
clockwise, this helps to snap the bail back over. Take a hook or a lure and tie
it onto the end of the line. One thing you must always remember about
spinning reels is that you always hold it in a way so that the reel is hanging
down. Now while you are holding it down, notice if the stem that connects
the reel to the base is between the second and third fingers while your hand is
gripped around the rod handle.

Keep turning the spool gently and carefully until the line coming out from the
under the bail is at the top closest to the rod. With the help of your index
finger, hook the line and lift is towards the rod. With your other hand, open
the bail. Now bring the rod back and forward to cast. Right about this time,
straighten the index finger holding the line so that it peels off the reel. Snap
the bail shut after turning the reel handle forward. To retrieve the line, turn
the fishing reel handle counter clockwise, which turns the bail that winds the
line back on the spool.

For still fishing, cast bait out or cast lures and retrieve them by same casting
sequence. A few things must be kept in mind- the line must come out from
under the bail or it won't wound back onto the spool. These spinning reels
come in a wide range of sizes for various fishing styles and conditions. These
reels must always be mounted on a spinning rod that has a large bottom rod
guide and larger guides the length of the rod. At the same time, a spinning
reel must be matched with a proper weight rod. The rod and reel set up will
not function properly if they are not matched.

You might find all this a little complicated but as you start handling the rod,
you will get a hang of it and see hoe easy it is! But no matter what make sure
you get all your fishing tackles from some reputed brand like this. You don't
want to ruin your fishing trip. To ensure that your tackles work well, it is
important to take proper care of them, maintain them. You also need to use
an ultra light reel with ultra light rod, a mid size reel with a light or medium
weight rod and salmon size reel with a large salmon rod. Good Luck and
Tight Lines!
