Rods and Reels
When selecting a fishing rod, there are several things that you should look for. Firstly, you should be able to hold the fishing rod comfortably in one hand. You can purchase many inexpensive combination packages, and rods and reels can be sold as a unit or separately with a good starter set available in the $30 range. You'll need to know what type of fish you'll be after as the weight of the fish relates to the strength of the line you use.
