Fishing rods have many advantages when compared with handline fishing - they can cast further, there is less danger for line to get entangled, elasticity of rods prevent strong fish from breaking the lines etc.

There are several things to consider when buying or using fishing rods like specifications (power, action, line weight, lure weight, number of pieces etc.), type of material, types (fly rods, spin and bait casting rods, spinning rods, ultra-light rods, ice rods, sea rods, surf rods, trolling rods, telescopic rods, pen size rods etc).

Fishing tackle combos and kits are often very cheap combinations and excellent stater kits - they often contain everything one needs for most of the fishing occasions.

You want to learn how to fish with a rod? Get yourself a cheap combo and learn how to fish. And don't worry if something breaks - it is not the last one you are going to break :o)

Experienced fishermen shouldn't avoid combos and kits - just read carefully what is in and calculate total price - combo prices are often much cheaper than items found individually.
