As with any other gear and equipment destined for fishing before making a choice you have to look at a set of details pertaining to your needs and preferences. Where will you be fishing? What kind of size and fish species are you going to pursue? Are you a weekend or vacation angler or would you rather do it as often as possible? Just how much are you willing to spend on a new setup?
You will not be very successful if you pick to start fishing when the sun is up in the sky. Of course this does not mean that you will not be able to catch anything. But if you want to maximize your chances go for darker areas where it is more likely for bass to hide.
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.
However if you plan a fishing trip in the Southern hemisphere you should hurry because here the water gets warmer faster. Go there in March or April if you want to catch plenty of bass during the spawning time.
The rod tapers from one end to the other. The degree of taper determines how much the rod will flex when stress is applied to it. Slower rods are easier to cast. A wider loop on the forward cast reduces casting distance.
