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.
Rods come in three basic styles: casting/conventional spinning and surfcasting rods. Casting/Conventional Rods:Designed to have the reel and guides on the top casting rods are effective for anglers looking to cast several hundred times during a fishing trip. Generally match up best with baitcasting and casting rods because they sit on top of the rod designed to fit this way. Most casting rods can handle heavy line and fish in dense cover.
A good idea would be to start with a good kit. Depending on what type of lures you intend to use your choices for rod and reel as well as line will be influenced. A medium size rod with medium action reel and 10-pound monofilament for your choice of the line are quite excellent choices. While these things do not seem to trigger a lot of debate in anglers in regards to what works and what doesn′t when it comes to bass fishing the topic of lures is much more arduous and passionate.
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.
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.
