As you can see, there are quite a few factors involved in choosing the right fishing rods. The frequency in which you fish, what species you are fishing for and the environment you are fishing in. The type of reel you like using, the material the fishing rods are made of, the handle and the action all come into consideration. You will learn which types are best for you through a little experimenting. In the end, its all going to come down to personal preference, the specific factors that are important to you and the style of fishing you enjoy. I hope this article helps allow you to better understand the factors involved in choosing the right fishing rods. I hope your fishing experiences are as great as mine and Happy Fishing to All.
Recently, this new fishing lure has stormed not only the fishing scene, ranging from the avid recreational angler to bass fishing tournament pro circuits, but the fishing industry as well. So what is this "magic" fishing lure and how has it changed the way we think about fishing? The now infamous "Alabama Rig"- a simple spinner-bait-like fishing rig that provides multiple lures simultaneously to would-be game-fish. Some will argue that the Alabama Rig is just a modification of an old, very well know saltwater tool, the Umbrella Rig. Though,for the most part, true, however, the application is new to most fresh water anglers.
Quality is by far the biggest difference between a custom and OTS fishing rod. A company that mass-produces needs to create the largest profit margin and unfortunately, some (not all) manufacturers also cut corners on components. Blanks and guides are not tested to determine the optimum positioning (nor can they mate a particular reel and line combination to them); instead, an average spacing is determined despite the fact that no two fishing rods (even within a production run) are exactly the same. A professional, custom builder ensures that both static (for stress distribution) and dynamic (for best casting performance) testing occurs.
The good news, smaller manufacturing companies, called custom rod builders exist. While many of these custom builders have the skill and talent to custom tailor to an anglers requirements, large manufacturers often lack the "attention to detail" to truly design and fabricate a fishing rod that is balanced, tuned, and ultimately the very best sport-fishing tool for the angler, leveraging the very best components, and at the "right" price. This simple fact in and of itself is the defining difference between a custom and a production fishing rod; the difference is ultimately the performance characteristics of the final product. Lets come back to this after weve identified exactly what a custom builder "is" and "does."
