Abstract: A fishing spinning reel that includes a rotor having a pair of opposing arms on both sides of a rotor body, wherein one of the pair of arms is provided with, at a forefront end thereof, a supporting member including a fishing line guide; a spool configured to wind up a fishing line through the fishing line guide; and a stiffening member extending from each of fore portions of the pair of the arms towards a rear portion of the rotor body. In one embodiment, the stiffening member is formed to be more spaced apart from the pair of the arms as approaching butt ends of the pair of the arms. In one embodiment, a portion of the stiffening member apart from the pair of arms may be connected to the rotor body.
