Four Reasons to Start Rod Building

Jul 28, 2008
While we all understand the magic of casting your line into the water, feeling that sharp tug, and reeling in an outstanding catch, not everyone who loves fishing completely grasps the good reasons for rod building. Some people wonder why it's worth all of the trouble. They say the time, energy, and money used to create a custom rod could be better spent actually fishing. Of course, they wouldn't say that if they understood some of the good reasons to get started in custom rod building.

Let's look at some of those reasons.

Reason #1: Customization

Today, we are obsessed with personalizing everything from our cars to our laptops to our bodies so it's no wonder that some of us don't want to walk around with the same fishing rod as the person on the other side of the water.

Rod building allows you to have complete creative control over the process. You can choose each specific piece of equipment. You can mix and match manufacturers. You can pick different colors. You can add decals, lettering, colored thread, and more. The sky's the limit when you're doing rod building and that's a huge part of its appeal.

Reason #2: Higher Quality and Rod Building

Because you do have total control over what goes into the finished product, you'll probably end up with a piece of fishing equipment that is superior to nearly anything you could find pre-made and for sale at your local sporting good store.

With that said, you'll probably also end up paying more for that higher quality because pre-made rods keep prices affordable by cutting corners. If you're not interested in saving a few dimes and nickels here and there then you'll be able to produce a first-class piece of fishing equipment that you'll be proud to use for years to come.

Reason #3: Higher Performance

The characteristics of our fishing equipment can determine our performance at the water. For example, if we are using a rod that is bit too heavy for us then that could be just enough to throw off our cast and reduce our ability to catch the fish we want. That's definitely not conducive to good fishing.

With rod building, you can construct a rod that is custom-designed to fit your needs in terms of weight, action, friction, and more. You'll be able to choose exactly what you want for your rod and have complete control over designing a fishing rod that will let you truly show off your fishing skills.

Reason #4: Rod Building as a Team Effort

Fishing for many of us has always been a family affair. It's a time when we bond with our kids or our friends or our parents. Rod building allows for a continuation of that bonding, even off the water. While the actual construction of the rod only takes a couple of hours, you'll have to spend time researching and buying the different components, as well as on deciding what to include in the product. That can give you plenty of time to enjoy being together and bonding over fishing.
