Specifications: John and steven weaver founded S and j tackle in 1982. One of their first products was the "ultimate" series of fly tying vices. Their reputation for quality work grew quickly and they soon won contracts to produce aluminium, nickel silver and titanium rod fittings that were used by orvis and several other leading rod makers throughout the world. In 1985 sharpes of aberdeen cane building division came up for sale along with all tools and equipment(millingmachines etc) which we purchased. This purchase allowed us to build bamboo rods using only our own components and be entirely independent, hardys being the only other english company with this facility. The business continued to grow and we were soon busy building fly rods for both ourselves and many other leading brands. Over the following years the company built up an enviable reputation for high quality at a fair price. Featherweight - bamboo fly rods - 2 piece Midge 6ft.4 - 5 wt. Frm6 Featherweight 7ft.5 wt.

So you want to get started fishing, but don’t know anything about rods, reels, line or terminal tackle. You don’t know what terminal tackle is, you say? Not to worry. I’m going to break it all down for you. I’m going to explain basic tackle to you: what it’s called and what it does.
Let’s start with the basic fishing rod:
fishing rod diagram
There are different kinds of fishing rods on the market; different sizes, made of different materials for different purposes. But the terms you see above are common to all fishing rods.
*By the way: its called a fishing rod not a fishing pole. Fishing rods have guides and a way to attach a reel to it. An old fashioned fishing pole is made of cane, has no guides and the line is attached to the tip (it has no reel).
The basic parts of a rod:
Butt Cap: This is at the bottom of the handle: sometimes made of rubber, sometimes of cork. This is the end you might press into your stomach if you’re fighting a good fish.
Handle: Referred to as a Grip, as well. This is where you hold the rod; can be made of foam or cork.
Reel Seat: This is where your reel gets attached to the rod. There are different mechanisms available to attach the reel. Some rods will have rings that go over the reel foot (see the reel diagram below to see a reel foot). Most rods have some sort of hood mechanism that screws either up or down on the foot of the reel to keep it in place. See the picture below
Also called a Keeper Ring. This little ring is a big convenience, as it gives you a place to hook your hook so you wont impale yourself when your on the move.
Butt: This is the thick part of your rod that closest to the handle.
Ferrule: If you have a rod that breaks down into 2 pieces or more, the ferrule is the joint where sections of the rod fit together. See below for a close up of what ferrules look like.
This is the guide closest to the handle end of your rod. Its located on the thickest part of the rod (butt), that’s why the call it the butt guide.
Guides: These are the rings you see going all the way down the rod, they "guide" the line down the length of rod to the tip. The number, spacing, and size of the guides depend on the kind of rod you are using. But, generally speaking, the more guides the better. A higher quality rod will have at least one guide for every foot of its length (i.e. 6 foot rod should have at least 6 guides).
Windings: Those windings are how the guides get and stay attached to the rod. It’s basically string that gets wound around the foot of the guide, and is then painted over with a kind of glossy enamel to protect it. See picture below for a close up.
This is the uppermost part of the rod, the thinnest and most flexible, nearest the tip top.
Tip Top: This is the guide at the very tip of your fishing rod, its also the smallest, and probably the most important. This is the guide you are most likely to break off. When you are not watching, it likes to get caught in car doors and the like. See picture below.
Learning new terminology can be a bit of a pain. But, learning this stuff is important: knowing the names and purpose of tackle will help you compare equipment when you’re ready to buy your first fishing outfit, and make it easier to get your questions answered when you need help (because people will know what you’re talking about).
* The rod has a miniaturized reel with a switchable rachet ideal for left and right handers. * The rod has a line brake and line fastener for exceptional stability. * The rod itself is made from aluminium alloy. * The line has a breaking-strain of 2.5kg. * Suitable for ages 14 years+. * Size: 22 x 1.5 x 1.5cm (in ‘pen’ form).
Fishing is a sport that symbolizes patience. So if you have corporate team buildings that requires patience and strength and a little bit of luck, this is the perfect corporate gift. This pen-sized fishing rod extends up to 4ft long. It also includes a triple hook and spinner.
A fishing rod or a fishing pole is a tool used to catch fish, usually in conjunction with the sport of angling, can also be used in competition casting (sport). (Sustenance and commercial fishing usually involves nets). A length of fishing line is attached to a long, flexible rod or pole: one end terminates in a hook for catching the fish. A 'fishing pole' is a simple pole or stick for suspending a line (normally fastened to the tip), with a hooked lure or bait. They are most commonly made of fiberglass, carbon fiber or, classically, bamboo, and are the only fishing levers properly referred to as "poles". In contrast, 'fishing rod' refers to a more sophisticated casting tool fitted with line guides and a reel for line stowage. Fishing rods vary in action as well as length, and can be found in sizes between 24 inches and 20 feet. The longer the rod, the greater the mechanical advantage in casting.
You also need to consider the various characteristics of Fishing Rods. Some of these are the actions of Fishing Rods, the weights, and their lengths. You will be able to determine the appropriate Fishing Rod you need by getting familiar with these basic features. Here are the guidelines:
Fishing Rod Actions A rod's action determines its flexibility. There are four action types in Fishing Rods. These are: extra fast, fast, moderate, and slow. Fast-action and slow-action rods have their own unique characteristics. A fast-action rod is more sensitive compared to a slow-action Fishing Rod. Likewise, the angler will be able to know if his lure is already reaching the bottom because a fast-action rod can send out the lure's vibrations. On the other hand, a soft cast is possible using a slow-action rod, unlike a fast-action rod wherein it may break the bait off. If you are using a very light Fishing Line, it is advisable to use a slow-action rod when casting a considerable amount of bait or lure.
Fishing Rod Weights A rod's weight indicates its strength. There are seven fundamental categories of rod weights: ultralight, light, medium light, medium, medium heavy, heavy, and extra heavy. Choosing the right Fishing Rod weight is not an easy task. But be guided by this rule: the right Fishing Rod's weight depends on how big and/or how heavy the lure you'll be using, and/or how big the fish you wish to catch is. In other words, the bigger the fish and/or the bigger or heavier the lure, the heavier the Fishing Rod you need. However, many Fishing Rod makers categorize rods based on what species they are made for, so buying the rod with the appropriate Fishing Rod weight becomes easier.
Fishing Rod Lengths The length of the Fishing Rod is also an important factor to consider. Basic physics principles will tell you that a longer Fishing Rod allows you to cast at a greater distance. This also affects your ability to fight against a fish. For instance, a shorter, thicker Fishing Rod will be able to provide better leverage for "pumping" a powerful kind of fish from deeper water.
Knowing the basic features and various characteristics of Fishing Rods can help you determine which type of Fishing Rod you can use for your Fishing needs.
Fishing Rods are very important in Fishing. Fishing Rods differ in weight, length, in the materials they are made of, and other features and characteristics. Therefore, it is important to know the essentials of Fishing Rods before heading to the tackle shop. Moreover, it is also crucial to determine the kind of fish you are after and the spot where you will be fishing, as these things also play a big role in choosing the appropriate Fishing Rod. We have a vast selection of Fishing Rods which vary in length, features, and brands here at our Shop.
