Every self-respecting fisherman knows that one of the main secrets of successful fishing is a rod. Now the fishing "tool" has ceased to be just a stick with a fishing line and hook, and is a functional and easy to use device.
Fishing Rod: Transformation in Time
Speaking of fishing rods, probably experienced fishermen will immediately flash somewhere in the memory of a bamboo rod, because 15 years ago, it was the most popular material for the manufacture of fishing rods. Fishermen also successfully made fishing rods with their own hands from hazel, this can be said to be the second most popular material, as it is more or less even. They mostly caught float gear, but they didn’t leave the spinningists offended; they produced spinning rods made of metal and glued bamboo.
But everything literally changed when industrial fiber glass was manufactured. The material forced out rods from wood in just a couple of years. Bamboo was replaced by the first telescopic fishing rods. Of course, with their weight they were much inferior to bamboo, but they were compact and easy to transport. Take with a couple of fishing rods on the road, no problems.
Thanks to manufacturing techniques and modern materials, fishing rods have gone through a complicated process of modernization. And now fishermen get great pleasure from fishing and love to brag to each other with the wide capabilities of their “gadgets”.
Types of fishing rods
Float - designed to catch float gear, on open water, from the shore or from a boat. Used in sports competitions where the angler is allowed to use only one rod. Single-part, multi-part, telescopic are produced. Also they include several subspecies: flywheel, Bologna, plug and match.
Spinning - designed to catch predatory fish, artificial bait and trolling. There is for coastal fishing, fishing from a boat, and for trolling. There are one-part, two-part, telescopic. More popular "dvuchastniki" with a plug connection.
Carp - have pronounced differences from the usual spinning. This is primarily the length, ranging from 3 m to 4.5 m, a long two-handed handle, large diameter flow rings, a large weight test. All this speaks of ultra-long casts, and the ability to deal with the strongest fish.
Feeder - designed specifically for bottom fishing. Came to our market from Albion (UK). They look like spinning, the design uses a lot of small diameter flow rings, has interchangeable tips (quivertip - quivertip), which serves as a bite indicator. Rods are multi-part plug-type, starting from a length of 2.7 m to 4.8 m.
Kastingovye - These rods can be attributed to the spinning as they are caught on the artificial bait of predators. Their feature is the mount under the multiplexer coil. Among the anglers they are called kurkovymi, due to the presence of a peculiar protrusion resembling a trigger. The form is equipped with reinforced throughput two petal rings.
Fly fishing - these rods, which are distinguished by their high quality material (mainly carbon is used). Allows you to make accurate casts and is suitable for permanent movement. The material of the form should be light and durable. Knitted flies are used as baits.
All fishing rods have different characteristics both in terms of the material of manufacture, and test, class, order, length. To choose a rod, the angler first of all should consider the method of fishing and the type of fish.
