Guide to Fishing Poles

Fishing Pole : What is it?

Fishing Poles

A fishing pole is a long, cylindrical rod that can be made of wood, plastic, fiberglass, metal, or other composite materials. Its main function is to cast the fishing line into the water. It is made up of a reel, a line, and guides that can be located on top or underneath it. 

It is important for fishing poles to be made of strong and durable materials. Aside from carrying the line's weight, fishing poles also carry the weight of the caught fish.

Choosing Fishing Poles (Buying tips)

Skill level: If you are a beginner, choose a graphite fishing pole because it is lightweight and easy to control. You can also get one made of a combination of graphite and fiberglass called a composite. It is affordable, durable, lightweight, and powerful.

Action:  Look for a slow action fishing pole if you want to be more accurate.  A fast action pole is ideal for breezy weather conditions because it can perform a lengthy cast. If you are a beginner, choose medium action pole because it is the easiest to use.
