What is the best Fishing Rod? While fishing is fun it is also good for you in ways you probably haven’t even thought about. Fishing keeps you fit, increases your vitamin D intake as you are outdoors in the lovely sunshine (most of the time). It improves your concentration, reduces your stress levels, and most importantly gets you out of the house and meeting friends and family.

Before you can start fishing you need the right kit. We have reviewed some of the best rods on the market to help you decide what is best for you.

Best fishing rods

When you buy a Dobyns rod you know you are getting a quality bit of kit that has been engineered from years of experience, if Gary Dobyns is putting his name on it, you know it must be good.

The first thing you will notice about the Fury 733C is how sturdy it is, the rod with a reel is comfortable to hold. This is a 7’3” medium rod (733), with a Kevlar wrapping and AA grade cork grip.

The fr733c is a medium-heavy fast action casting rod recommended for 10-17 lb line and 1/4-3/4 oz lure weight.

This reel is great for almost all types of Bass fishing, from Rock bass, Black sea bass, and even the Largemouth bass, however, if you are looking to catch the big Striped Bass, you will need to go for something a little bigger, something around the 765 range. However, this little rod will suit 95% of the Bass fishing you will be doing.

Capaci Portable Rod

Best Fishing Rods

If space is an issue, then this rod is for you. This is the latest travel rod from Capaci, when you slot the pieces together you can not tell it is not a one-piece rod, which is amazing. Also, the cost is by far one of the best value of money rods on the market.

Lightweight and portable easily fit in the car trunk, boat, or backpack. LEO spinning rod reel combo allows you to travel to your favorite fishing spot and enjoy fishing whenever and wherever you want.

One thing we do suggest is you take time to make sure each of the 6 pieces is securely fitted together. You do not want to start your first cast and part of your rod flies into the water. While it will not drift away, it will set you back some time to start your setup again.

This rod comes in 2 different sizes 210cm, 240cm, also depending on if you want to do cashing or spinning, so 4 options in total. The action on them all is Fast and the power is ML. Line weight is 6-14lb, with a lure weight of 1/16-1/2 oz.
