A fishing rod is a stick-like piece of fishing equipment used by an angler to manage and control fishing line, which is stored on a fishing reel and mounted to the rod. Fishing rods range in size from 18 inches up to 20 feet and can be built with exact specifications and characteristics for specialized uses. Fishing poles have been around for thousands of years in crude forms, made from any readily available wood, becoming increasingly sophisticated as materials and technology advance. Bamboo became the material of choice for producing lighter and more flexible fishing rods and remains an option for nostalgic fishermen and rod manufacturers today. Modern fishing rods are constructed from fiberglass, graphite, or carbon fiber in the never-ending pursuit of strength, sensitivity, and durability in lightweight configurations.
