|Excellent Fishing Rods for that Perfect Fishing Experience
Today's fishing rods have incorporated modern features that are
not typical of the more primitive cane pole. Modern fishing rods
contain reels, which aid in the retrieval of fish caught in its
A much-sophisticated feature is the spinning rod where the
entire shaft of the rod except the handle can move around on its
axis to allow flexibility when fish caught on snare bait
struggles through the water.
Like the classic cane fishing rods, the fishing gadget is thick
at the handle (bottom) and is tapered and thinner at the tip.
This very basic design allows handling stability and flexible
movement of the entire length of the shaft.
Types of Fishing Rods and Specifications
A typical fishing rod measures 6 and 16 feet (2 and 5 m) and
vary in capability to tolerate strain in fishing activity. The
length has a lot to do with withstanding force exerted by the
fish to the pole and determines for the most part the
performance of rods used for angling.
Cane poles are one of the smallest and less sophisticated
gadgets in fishing. It is usually made of bamboo or other
flexible wood material with the most basic fly line attached to
Unlike other more sophisticated fishing rods, cane poles do not
usually contain reels or its equivalent to be used for reeling
in or retrieving fish caught on bait. This very same action is
known as angling.
These types of rods are the most popular today. They can be used
either for heavyweight or lightweight fish although they were
proven best for trout, walleye and bass fish. They vary in
measurements from 5 and 7 feet (1.5 and 2.5 m).
Spinning poles are commonly used in bass fishing competition
accounting for their flexibility and tolerance to stress. They
accommodate bigger and tougher fly lines and stabilize them to
avoid line tangles during uncoiling of float lines.
These rods are best for heavy lures and baits especially when
reaching around 180 to 200 feet under the ocean's surface. They
are made of fine, solid materials which accounts to their
heaviness. The use of jigging rods is specifically due to
alternating currents during the fishing activity.
Some oceans have erratic undersea current. That is why the bait
and fly lines should be kept in place. Lures are also disturbed
and cause confusion among fish if the lines are not long and
heavy enough to withstand and tolerate water currents under the
These rods are best for target fishes usually found dwelling at
the bottom of the sea such as halibut and cods.
