Spinning reels were in use in America starting around the early 1870s. They were originally developed to provide a way to cast artificial flies for trout or salmon, that were too light in weight to be cast by bait casting reels. The earliest fixed-spool reels turned the spool 90 degrees in the body of the reel for retrieval, and then reversed it back into casting position. Line is released from a spinning reel in spiral coils from the end of the spool.

In 1948, the Mitchell Reel Company of Cluses, France introduced the Mitchell 300.  The design placed the spool in a permanently fixed position below the fishing rod. A mechanical line pickup rotating around the spool was used to retrieve the fishing line.

Spinning reels frquently have more issues with twisting of the fishing line. Line twist in spinning reels can occur from the spin of an attached lure, the action of the wire bail against the line when engaged by the crank handle, or even retrieval of line that is under load.  The angler must be watchful of conditions that cause line twisting when retrieving line on a spinning reel.

Fixed spool reels are cast by opening the bail, grasping the line with the forefinger, and then using a backward movement of the rod tip followed by a forward cast while releasing the line with the forefinger at the same time, then the bail is tripped to engage the line and act as the line pickup, reeling the line back onto the spool.
