Important Questions to Ask About Fishing Rods

Jul 30, 2008
When you are purchasing new fishing rods, you shouldn't just go into the store and pick the first rod that catches your eye. If you want the best results possible with your purchase, you need to take into consideration some important factors that should guide your fishing rods.

Here are a few questions to ask before you begin buying fishing rods.

When Do You Use Your Fishing Rods?

This is an important factor. You need to take into consideration how often you're going to be using the equipment you buy. For example, many fishers just consider this a hobby they can do on the weekends as a way to unwind and relax. It's not a competition. Other fishers take their fishing very seriously; some even compete in tournaments and strive to break catch records. Obviously if you are the latter then you're going to want to choose your fishing rods more carefully. You might even want to build a custom rod. On the other hand, if you're just a hobbyist then you'll still want to choose carefully but you'll be able to find something in the average online store that will meet your needs.

Where Do You Use Your Fishing Rods?

One of the big decisions you'll want to make when looking at your fishing rods is how far you travel to reach the fishing location and how easy you want your fishing equipment to be to transport. For example, if you can simply walk to your favorite fishing hole then you'll want to look at fishing rods that can be transported very conveniently, possibly one that can collapse into a much smaller, easier to carry piece. On the other hand, if you've got plenty of room you might prefer to choose a single piece fishing rod that can be placed in your trunk or stored in the garage.

What Are You Going to Catch with Your Fishing Rods?

The majority of fishing rods are designed for specific types of fish. They were built to cast a certain distance or were built to withstand the environmental differences of saltwater over freshwater, etc. You may be able to find some fishing rods that can be used for a wide range of fishing applications but you'll probably pay more and you'll find they don't do as well as more specific types. Instead, go in with either a fishing location or a type of fish in mind. Look at what each of the fishing rods claims to be created for. If you do plan on fishing in multiple types of environments, go ahead and invest in multiple fishing rods. You won't regret the decision.

Where Should I Buy Fishing Rods?

When you're looking for fishing equipment, you're best bet is to do some research and get a good idea of what you're wanting. Then go to online stores with larger selections and lower prices to make your purchases. Sea Isle Tackle, for instance, is one possible location to consider.
