Transcript of Generation of the Fishing Reel

The First Actual Reel
The British had claimed to invent the first multiplying fishing reel. But in 1820, a Kentuckian named George Snyder invented the first fishing reel in America. His reels were much more popular in America than the reels that the British claimed to make.
Back before reels were used to cast line, they were used to hold line. But in 1651, English literature first reported a “wind” installed within two feet of the lower end of the rod. Even though this isn't exactly a reel, it was the first reference known to man as one.

In this presentation, i will be going through the evolution of the fishing reel. I have decided to do the fishing reel because i like to fish and i thought it would be a cool thing to learn about.
Spin Cast Reels
Spin cast reels were developed by the Johnson Reel Company in the early 1950's. The line on spin cast reels is thrown from a spool, and can therefore be used for throwing light lures and bait. The spin cast reel is fitted with a nose cone that encloses and protects the fishing line and spool. Pressing a button on the rear of the fishing reel releases the line pickup and allowing the line to fly off of the spool. Then when turning the handle, the pickup pin immediately re-engages the line and re-spools it onto the reel.

Evolution of Reels
You can see that the fishing reel has come a long way. From using a piece of string on a spool, to having a reel that can basically reel in the fish for you. Thanks to all of those great inventors, we are able to go have fun and catch some really big fish.
