Each of our series of articles on Freshwater Fishing Tackle carries on even as attempt to remove the fright of having sportfishing gear from the amateur angler. Daiwa Freshwater Reels

I personally do it the difficult way, I bought tackle that seemed good but was completely incorrect for the chore available. With the many reels and fishing rods on the market, not forgetting the billions of lures, hooks, sinkers, line types and other fishing accessories; how do a beginner not make a few unacceptable and expensive wrong decisions?

We started our series on freshwater fishing take on with the reel; including the spincast and mixing reels. Now we will cover the Ferrari of the fishing domain the Baitcast Reel; often known as Baitcaster, baitcasting, casting reel, and a conventional reel. 

Baitcast reels can handle greater lines and permits much longer casts than spinning fishing reels in the comparable size range. Fishermen frequently use line in the 14- to 17-pound-test range.

Some are built partially from composite, but most are still stainless steel, often with brass pieces in most areas. The baitcast reel links on top of the fly fishing rod.

Because of it can above the rod hanging the baitcast reel is more troublesome to shed and has a much greater learning curve than either the spincast or spinning reels. For this reason it is not a powerful entry level fly fishing reel for kids or perhaps the starting angler.

A good example of baitcast reel is the “Shimano Calais Baitcaster, inches priced at under $400. Finesse anglers will relish the solid feel and smooth handling of the small low-profile baitcaster. It is created using ten stainless material anti-rust bearings, flex-free light weight aluminum frame and side-plates, and aluminum spool.
