                                    DICK'S Sporting Goods carries industry-leading fishing rods, outfitted with the latest angling technology. Explore popular freshwater rods, saltwater rods and casting rods for your next day at the water.

                                    Keep in mind rod materials when making your selection. The construction of your rod impacts its action and should be designed for your skill level:

                                    • Fiberglass Rods: Fiberglass rods are typically durable and affordable, making them ideal for beginners. When fishing in situations where medium to slow action is needed, fiberglass rods can be effective.
                                    • Graphite Rods: Graphite is often preferred by experienced anglers due to its high sensitivity, which allows the user to detect bites faster.
                                    • Bamboo Rods: This material produces a smooth, fluid backcast and offers excellent flex and feel.

                                    You should consider your level of fishing experience, game fish and environment when choosing your new fishing rod. Learn more about the different models at DICK'S Sporting Goods:

                                    Casting/Conventional Rods: Designed to have the reel and guides on the top, casting rods are most effective for anglers looking to cast several hundred times during a fishing trip.

                                    • Generally match up best with baitcasting reels.
                                    • Most casting rods can handle heavy line and fish in dense cover and water vegetation.

                                    Spinning Rods: Ranging in length from 5 to 8 feet, this model positions the reel and guides on the bottom of the pole to provide smooth, accurate casts.

                                    • Longer spinning rods with elongated grip handles for two-handed casting are frequently used for saltwater or steelhead and salmon fishing.
                                    • Spinning rods are also widely used for trolling and still fishing with live bait.
                                    • The handle length is balanced against the rod's length.

                                    Saltwater Casting/Conventional Rods: The reel and line are located on top of the rod, and the trigger grip lets you securely clutch the rod while releasing the thumb bar.

                                    • Designed with a quick taper at the rod tip for accuracy and a large backbone at the lower portion of the rod for stability.
                                    • Saltwater bait-casting rods can be made from fiberglass or graphite.
                                    • Fiberglass is more durable and has greater lifting power than graphite, which makes it a preference for larger fish such as tuna and yellowtail.
                                    • Graphite rods are more bait sensitive and work well for surf fishing and open water, where bait may be cast over a greater distance.

                                    Power and action are two essential functions of your new fishing rod:

                                    Power: A rod's resistance to flexing is known as its power. This ranges from ultra-light to ultra-heavy or other similar classifications. If you're after larger game fish, you may need a rod with more power.

                                    Action: This impacts your casting distance and accuracy. The smaller the fish, the lighter the action that you'll need, while the heavier the fish, the heavier the action.
