The basic mechanism used to draw fish out of water and onto land or into a bought is the fishing reels. They are essentially fancy spools that hold the fishing line and allow you to cast out a length of line quickly and wind the line back in under drag pressure in order to catch the fish.
This explanation of fishing reels is super simplistic and does not give any indication of how advanced and unique the many types can be these days. If you really want to know how fishing reels work, you must consider all the parts of them.

The two main types of reels are spinning and conventional. To put their operation at the most basic, they both have a spool that the fishing line gets wrapped around when you turn a crank. All fishing reels get attached to the fishing pole and the line gets guided up to the tip so you can cast and draw the fish in once you catch it.
Spinning fishing reels and conventional reels different slightly in the way that they wind the line back up again. Spinning reels have a stationary spool and a moving rotor that guides the line onto the spool in a back and forth pattern so everything lays flat and neatly.
Conventional fishing reels have a spool that moves on its own and the even spread of the line depends on a metal bail and the user’s thumb pressure. When casting, the fisher also uses his or her thumb to keep proper tension on the line as it goes out.
