Fishing Rods

Material The materials used in the manufacture of fishing rods may vary in many ways.

  • Fibreglass is durable, economic and adapts to most types of fishing.
  • Graphite is stronger and more sensitive but are more expensive compared to earlier.
  • Carbon is slightly stronger but more expensive still.
  • Bamboo requires more care and lacks the strength of materials previously spoken. This is still used in fly rods and handmade.

The length of the rod gains importance for where to be used, thus: A Short rod works well in places with little space as in the case of boats and one long cane will be most suitable for releases requiring greater range.

Action tip

The rods are characterized by snap action only bend the tip, the average bending action of the medium forward and finally the double-acting along the entire rod.

Fishing Lures

The wide variety of freshwater fish has caused different types of methods to catch them. Some species are predatory and non-fishing with natural bait or prepared. These baits can be disposed on a hook under a float or a weighted line that connects underwater. predatory species also can be fished with natural baits but also captured with artificial baits or lures. They are designed to imitate the prey of a particular species. Other stimulate the fish’s predatory instincts. So, these are the maximum principles for the development of artificial flies. Trout, salmon and other freshwater species are caught by fly fishing increases considerably and supporters for them is one of the most enjoyable ways of angling.


The objective is to capture fishing lure predators by the method of launch and recovery of baits or lures. This movement is what attracts the fish. If fishing is done with a technique called multiplier reel casting. If, by contrast, uses a fixed drum reel called light casting.

The fishing lure includes some of the shorter rods used in angling. A rod for casting technique can measure 1.4 m. These rods are ideal for use in areas where vegetation is very dense in the river. This makes the haul longer rods difficult.
