How To Choose The Right Fishing Rod (Beginner To Advanced)

This is the information no one is talking about! From the basics (how to interpret rod models) to advanced details on rod action and power, Matt is laying down everything you need to know to make educated decisions about fishing rods.

Fishing gear is expensive and the truth is, most anglers are guessing when they make a purchase. They have no idea if the rod they’re buying will do what they need. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Understanding ratings will take out all the guess work so you can begin making easy decisions.

Below you’ll find links to many of our favorite rods, separated by technique. We’ve also included a few budget-minded rods as well. All the links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item. In many cases the rods are available, in a few they’re available for pre-order and expected to arrive in early Spring.
