If you’re interested in finding the perfect fishing rods for your next fishing trip you’re going to want to take a look at all of the options. With anything from spinning rods to fly rods to baitrunner reels out there (and a whole lot more) it can be difficult to decide which is the best way to go. That’s where we can help.
Spinning rods are actually 5 to 8 ½ feet in total length and are made with graphite or fiberglass. The handles are foam or cork, which can be more comfortable and softer to hold onto. They also have several guides across the rod to make sure you have the proper level of control of your line.
Fly rods or fly reels are designed to be used for (you guessed it) fly fishing. They’re made in different sizes and different shapes and styles to make sure that fly fishing is easier, which happens by creating a flexible rod that can move forward and back. They’re meant to bring n smaller or large fish and have faster and easier casting.
A baitrunner reel is a type of freespool reel hat offers a little bit more drag when you’re fishing. You can manually engage or disengage this drag so that you can not only hook the fish but let it take the bait for a little while. Thus, the name, baitrunner. The fish will be able to ‘run’ with the bait, but only a little bit before you’re going to be able to reel it back in.
There are plenty of other types of fishing rods and reels out there including casting rods, ice fishing rods, trolling rods, telescopic, surf, sea fishing and more. Each of these rods and reels has its own benefits and drawbacks, but the best thing you can do is look at the type of fishing you want to do and match up the characteristics of the rod.
If you’re looking for any of these types of reels or more information about them, you’ve come to the right place. You’re going to see plenty about where you can use them, how you can use them and just when you’re going to want to pick one up for yourself (if at all). Your next fishing trip can be a whole lot more successful if you have the right equipment along for the ride.
