A lot of people in the western countries have fishing as their hobby and it is now catching on to the rest of the world. Casting is one of the basic techniques of fishing. This technique uses Casting Rods for the purpose.
Reels are not a necessity in some rods, as they do not require long strings for fishing deep inside the sea or lakes. Casting Rodsare the basic rods which have a pole attached on top of the handle with a constant string length. The length of the pole decides the superiority of the rod. More the length better is the mechanical advantage for the angler. Casting technique depends mostly on the angle at which the pole is being cast and the centre of gravity of the rod. It also depends on the sturdiness of the material and the weight of the rod.
