Rods

     There are different rods for different types of fishing. Rods can have a little or a lot of bend to them. Fast rods only bend at the tip, and are used for distance or bottom fishing. They are not ideal for large fish as too much pressure on the line will snap the tip of the rod. Slow rods bend throughout the length of the rod. These are better for struggling with larger fish.

     Bait-casting fishing rods are approximately 6 feet long, and are used for more precision. They are light enough to use for fast fish (bass, etc.), but are also strong enough for heavier fish. Spinning fishing rods are usually made from graphite. They come in three weights:

1. Ultralight: Used for lighter weight fish
2. Medium spinning rod: Used for heavier fish
3. 9-foot spinning rod: Used for ocean fishing.
