A spincast or closed face reel is a great choice for beginners because it makes casting really easy, according to pro fisherman Tom Redington.
To use a spincasting reel, simply push in the button and hold it. Once you let go of the button, the line will come out.
You should start your cast with the lure dangling about a foot off the end of the rod tip. To cast, push the button down and hold it down while bringing the rod behind you to a complete stop. Then bring the rod forward to about the 11 o’clock position and let go of the button to cast the lure and line into the water.
