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.
We′ve tackled the benefits of rod and reel combos in other articles we′ve published over time. However since we have never addressed the issue individually we thought we might put together a short list of the advantages that such setups seem to offer and tell you how they′ve become to be rather popular over the years.
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.
The waters you′ll be fishing have something to say when it comes to the fishing technique you will employ. The size of the fish its feeding habits as well as whether or not it puts up a fight have a lot to do with the actual specifications of the rod and reel. As for the frequency of use it goes without saying that utilizing a combo quite often means that it has to be durable above all. Don′t forget to look at the bait or lure you will be using as its weight has a lot to do with selecting the proper setup.
Competitiveness and patience are the keys to a successful fishing outing. But a good rod goes a long way too. Learn about the components and materials for your fishing rod and find one that′s right for your next trip.
