Choose the Right Reel for You

There are three main kinds of fishing rod reels, all of which can be found in this comprehensive collection at Academy. The most common type, the spinning reel, takes a little bit of practice, has decent accuracy and range, and performs well in a range of environments. Spincast reels have all their moving parts concealed in a nose cone. Line is let out by releasing a button during the casting motion. These reels are the easiest to use, and great for kids. Baitcast reels are more difficult to use. They work well with heavy line, and are extremely accurate.

In addition to these three main types, Academy Sports also carries conventional reels that are preferred by offshore anglers hoping to catch tuna or other large fish, and fly reels that are ideal for making a lure dance on the surface of a river or lake. Choose the right reels for fishing rods for your individual style, and haul in a record catch.
