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.
Fiberglass Rods:Typically geared towards beginners. These rods require little maintenance and are of an average weight and solid rod strength. If you are fishing for larger fish such as muskie walleye or pike where you need a heavy durable rod for retrieving the fighting fish fiberglass rods work best.
Saltwater Guides: Made of plastic metal or ceramic. Circles are positioned to the rod′s shaft to control fishing line. In casting rods line guides are on top of the rod. They are smaller to reduce the play in the line and allow for easier casting and quicker retrieve. Spinning rods place the line guides on the rod′s bottom. These guides get larger toward the base of the rod. The number of line guides is determined by the rod′s length as well as by the quality of the rod.
