The length of a fishing rod typically ranges from 6 to 12 feet. The length of your rod largely depends on the type of fishing you plan to do the species you′re after and your fishing environment. Also consider your own angling experience and strength level. A beginner should start with a rod short enough to help with control and the development of technique but long enough to provide a good casting distance (8 to 9 feet long). Small children need a shorter rod because of their height. In wooded areas or those with surrounding brush choose a shorter rod. In wide open spaces where you would be most likely to fly fish choose a longer rod. To catch larger more aggressive fish you will need a stronger shorter rod.
Grip or Handle : The best type is constructed “through the handle” rather than a glued-on grip. Grips are composed of different materials such as cork foam or wood which provide comfort while casting and reeling in a fish. Cork Grips : Comfortable and do not absorb much water Foam Grips : Lightweight durable comfortable and do not break Pistol Grip : Shortest type of grip contoured to the shape of your hand with a hook for your index finger to help cast more accurately.
A rod′s weight and length should be matched to the weight of your line. A rod may also be described by the weight of lure or hook that the rod is designed to support. Lure weight is usually expressed in ounces or grams.
Power: Rods may be classified as ultra-light light medium-light medium medium-heavy heavy ultra-heavy or other similar combinations. Ultra-light rods are suitable for catching small bait fish and also pan fish or situations where rod responsiveness is critical. Ultra-Heavy rods are used in deep sea fishing surf fishing or for heavy fish by weight.
If there is one thing that must be mentioned without being favorable to synthetic worms is that they are mostly used when fishing in clear waters. You are therefore limited in what you can do with them but seeing that bass usually bite when you use them you should never forget to have a few with you.
