A fishing rod is a long, flexible rod used by fishermen to catch fish. At its simplest, a fishing rod is a simple stick or pole attached to a line ending in a hook (formerly known as an angle, hence the term angling). The length of the rod can vary between 2 and 50 feet (0.5 and 15 m).
· Overhead rods are the classic boat fishing rod. They are engineered to work in perfect unison with an overhead reel and are usually slightly shorter and more powerful than casting rods. They’re made for fighting big species of deep-sea fish and sportfish.
· These rods are not built for fishing larger species. If you try to land a northern pike or lake trout with an ice fishing rod, there’s a good chance you are going to end up with a broken pole. They are highly portable and easy to use. It doesn’t take a lot of precision to figure out how to use an ice fishing rod.
· Big game trolling rods or boat rods designed for heavy duty bottom fishing usually have one or more roller guides with bearings to ensure the line comes off the spool smoothly when the big one strikes. Tip-top is the guide at the top that is attached to the rod with a sleeve so it also protects the tip. Grips are what the angler holds in his hand.
