Great Shape and firmness Define Spinning Rods as Well



Almost all fishing rods used at present for professional angling are mostly manufactured in Japan or with Japanese technology with the highest precision and design quality. Japanese were pioneer of angling for more than a couple of centuries and the equipment used by them were also of good design and provided anglers the accuracy that was needed to catch fishes. Tenkara fishing was one of their most revered styles of fishing. Ergonomic and steady are also words that can be used to define such rods. Spinning rods provide the sturdiness as well as the string sensitivity to catch both big and small fishes. Types of fishing rods vary depending upon the use of the rod. 



A leisure boat ride into the sea with a couple of fishing rods on each side of the boat can make for catching fishes while on a rejuvenating boat ride under the sun, into the sea. For this, Spinning Rods are thebest choice to catch fishes while not having to hold on continuously to the rod. These can be fixed onto the boat and have a well shaped telescopic design, capable of handling even the biggest and fishes that fight against getting held onto the bait. In all, this is a great rod to have as a part of the angling kit.

Power and Might like None Other – Hera Rods



Fishing by itself is a great experience. Having an extra passion to catch big fishes gives a thrill like no other.  Japanese were pioneer in fishing and most of the techniques and support equipment used for fishing are designed and innovated by Japanese through the ages. Traditional rods were made using bamboo and were effective in catching small fishes. The bigger fishes needed a different design and technique to catch. Traditionally, Hera Rods were also made of bamboo but with a design different from the normal ones. This type of rod is used till date by anglers for catching fishes.


Hera Rods consist only of a single pole without reels and a string attached on one end. They are made of strong wood which is compressed at high temperatures to withstand the weight of heavy fishes. These rods came into existence only when the normal ones proved futile to catch heavy and ferocious fishes. These rods are very precise and accurate. It is easy to use and the experience while angling with this rod is fun and is an experience of a lifetime especially when big, non-cooperative and ferocious fishes hold on to the bait.

Traditional Fish Catching Using Fly Rods


The thrill of catching fish either for the joy of catching it or for making a meal out of it on weekend vacations is an experience by itself. Fly fishing is the most revered style of fishing.  This kind of fishing is usually seen on charter fishing as well as a recreational activity. Flies were traditionally used by early fishermen to catch fishes. Dead flies were attached on one end to attract fishes to the surface of the water and get hold of the flies. This technique was copied by fishermen from nature and was effectively implemented by them to mimic the naturally occurring phenomenon. These Fly Rods were initially made of bamboo of high quality and the recent ones made of bamboo are a classic piece which an avid collector would not miss out on.

Japanese technology, engineering and manufacturing techniques have a high precision and the quality of the rod is impeccable. The rods that come out these days are mostly of graphite carbon fiber that is known for supreme standard of quality, lightweight and sturdy. These Fly Rods have a reelon the handle and are not very long. Usually, these rods are not telescopic, i.e. their poles do not extend as when required. They are of fixed length to whole string end, an artificial fly is attached and fishes are caught.
