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.
Make sure that you go on any fishing trip well prepared. Equip yourself and your tackle box with all the necessary items for a successful adventure. Bass may not be very stubborn or particularly challenging fish to catch but still they can present certain quirks that it is best for you to know about.
Action determines how much control you have over the fish. The faster the action the more pressure you can put on the fish. The power is your rod weight so deciding the type of fish you want to catch will determine the power you need for your 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.
Fishing rods can be crafted from a variety of materials such as bamboo graphite fiberglass or composite. These affect the rod′s action and should be appropriate for your skill level and fishing mode.
