    I really like the low profile and the feel of Baitcasting Reels. They take awhile to learn how to use with most lures. I have some <a href="http://www.outdoorsporting.com/Fishing.asp">Curado Baitcasting Reels</a> I really like and use 90% of the time. I use with very small and light lures my spinning reels.

    I got something at Dicks Sporting Goods that was on sale... for about 50, I got an Abu Garcia silver baitcaster matched with a Berkley lightning casting rod. I checked... it usually goes for 120 so not only is it good quality but hopefully it will last him... did not break the wallet which was nice. Thanks to all who answered.

    Any reel will do though one with a thumb bar may better fit a small hand , use a rod that is on the stiff side. Turn the tension on the spool up and use a heavy weight 1 to 1 1/2 ounce until they get comfortable with throwing it.

    I too am a rank amateur and was looking for a good starting rig. A gentleman at Gander Mountain sold me a Daiwa Exceller rod and reel, a nice basic rig, said that yes, a bit more expensive than some other rod/reels in the rack but that once I got onto it, it would serve me well. Still learning and building bird nests, but I'm working on it. Tight lines!

    There are some good combo's out there.
    It'll take practice though, those birdnest's are a bear.
    {Tip for you/him Get a big cheap comb, cut all the teeth out except the two ends. It'll get em' out easier with no cuts to your line.}

    My nephew is gettting into fishing and I want to get him a baitcaster for his birthday. He has the spinning reel down but has no idea how to use a baitcaster. He is turning 15 so a regular size rod should be good. Anybody know a good baitcaster for a beginner... maybe even a rod/reel combo..?
