We can help you find the perfect rod if we know the following:
- Type of reel (spinning or casting)
- Size range (in pounds) of fish you expect to catch
- Lake or flowing river/stream
- Fishing from boat, pier, or bank
- Fishing line test (lb)
- Lure weight range (oz)
- Technique you plan to use
- Rod length desired (approximate)
Let us know as much of this as you can and we can recommend the perfect rod.

spinning cl4 shimano-2# to what ever i am blessed to come my way—lakes–boat— #test 6 to 10#test—lure weights/16to5/16oz—tech.—verticle(drop shot,lite jigs) deeper tubes/flukes-6″to8″worms(lite wt.sinkers)-small to medium cranks/small top waters.—6’6″ to a little over 7′—i want a rod that is sort of a mag.medium(if there is sutch a thing)-with a tip that is sensitive enougth to detect a lite bite yet i need to be able to handle getting a fish in deep water to the boat without sacrificing the lightness and sensitivety that makes a day fishing fun. thank you—chuck marcoe

Hi, I’m looking for a baitcasting rod for perch fishing in the UK. I fish stillwaters from the bank (mostly) and need a rod that will cast small crankbaits in the 3/4oz-1oz range on light lines as a ‘big’ fish will only be 2-3lb! I dont think rod length is critical unless a longer rod means longer casts! Please can you recommend a rod?
Many thanks and all the best
