Another factor that you should give some thought to is that purchasing a rod and reel requires quite a bit of research beforehand. You need to decide on the power and action of the pole the right length for the species you are trying to catch and you have to make sure that you match the rod with the reel in terms of these details and the gear ratio of the latter.
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.
Action: Affects your casting distance and accuracy also relating to the lure or bait you need and the strength of the reel that should be used. The smaller the fish the lighter the action needed while the heavier the fish the heavier the action. An action may be slow medium fast or a combination (e.g. medium-fast.). An extra fast action rod bends just at the tip. A fast action bends in the last quarter of the rod. A moderate-fast action rod bends over the last third. A moderate action rod bends over the last half. A slow action rod bends all the way into the handle.
