If you use crankbaits your choice for a rod should be a 6.5-foot model. You will find it easy to cast your line from flat areas on the shore if your choice for lures is a crankbait.
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.
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.
