Whether fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, striped-bass, wipers, or other game-fish, the resemblance of shad or a school of bait-fish has placed the A-Rig in a class of lures that stands all by themselves. Before this innovation, species such as bass, have always received lure presentations of single lures: top water tackle, spinner-baits, crank-baits, swim baits, etc. For the first time in the freshwater angling world, multiple lure presentations are now available due to the simple, yet effective design of the American ingenuity provided in the Alabama Rig.
Another great reason for choosing a custom-built rod is that you have so many choices of premium components! Perhaps you have found the an action that is suited for you, but youre not satisfied with the type of guides, the quality of cork, the thread wraps or perhaps you want to move up to a better quality reel seat. You dont have this type of choice unless you decide an opt for the custom choice. The overall properties of the "Off-The-Shelf (OTS)" fishing rod is extremely dependent on the components attached to the blank, and more importantly the process by which those components are attached to the blank. Thus, the number, type, and placement of guides; the wrapping; and the choice and placement of handle material/components totally affect the end use. When it comes to the overall quality and performance, we all know that not all fishing rods are created equal.
For example, are you planning to catch freshwater or saltwater fish? Freshwater fishing is done in the interior of the country, at locations such as lakes, rivers, ponds and streams, whereas saltwater fishing is done along the coast or out on the ocean. Different rods suit difference conditions. If youre starting out, buy something at a reasonable price, and only spend the bigger dollars when you have some experience and you know you want to keep fishing. It might be worth asking a friend whos an experienced angler to go rod shopping with you, to make sure you find a rod thats comfortable and appropriate for your fishing needs. Otherwise, spend some time chatting with the staff at your local fishing store. They have a lot of experience in rod selection, and are sure to be able to help you find a fishing thats perfect for your needs.
Fishing rods are made of different types of materials including graphite, fiberglass, steel, wood and bamboo. Fiberglass rods are great for kids and beginners. They hold up well and require little to no maintenance. Fiberglass rods are more flexible and can withstand more abuse that is generally brought on due to improper care and handling. They are also better to use when the rod is going to be under constant pressure and sensitivity is not as much of a concern, such as when you are trolling. Graphite fishing rods are a preferred choice for the more experienced fisherman. These fishing rods are lighter in weight and very strong. They just dont hold up very well to the abuse incurred from mishandling. If you are going to be saltwater fishing, you dont want to use any tackle that is made of corrosive metals.
