Freshwater Rods – A fishing rod is the most important piece of equipment in your fishing collection. You'll choose a fishing rod based on where you're going to fish and what fish you would want to catch. Fishing rods vary in their width, length & stiffness.

Features:

Weight - You should be able to withstand the weight of your fishing rod while fishing, so that you don't lose balance or get pulled under the water!

Flexibility - The rod should be flexible enough to be able to withstand and put up with a fighting fish.

Length - A longer fishing rod will give you more casting distance and will also absorb some of fight from the fish and thus, puts less pressure on the line. A shorter rod is well suited for jigging and for all day casting.

Types of Fishing Rods:

Spinning Rods – A spinning rod is a 5 - 8.5 feet long fishing rod made from graphite or fibreglass. Typically they have around five to eight guides that decrease in size from the handle to the tip and help in controlling the line. The spinning reel hangs beneath the rod and is kept in place with a sliding reel seat. Spinning rods are commonly used for catching bass, trout, pike & walleye.

Telescopic Fishing Rods - These are collapsible fishing rods that can expand up to 10-15 feet and be as compact as 2 feet long when collapsed. The are made of the same material as a conventional fishing rod – graphite and fibreglass. They are highly portable and convenient to carry without compromising on any of the features of a traditional fishing rod.

Ultra-Light Fishing Rods – Best suited for catching a smaller fish or to get more fight out of a larger fish. They are usually shorter and more flexible than the conventional rods. These rods are popularly used for catching crappie, trout, bass, bluegill and other types of panfish.

Pole Fishing Rods – These are simple poles with a line and a hook attached at the end of the rod. They are usually used for catching non-predatory fish by using small baits such as chicken pieces or worms.
