"Travel fishing rods are better for backpackers as they take up far less space than your standard rods – without compromising on quality. Fitting a rod into your bag or strapping it to the outside of your pack makes for a more realistic approach to fishing on the road.
Travelling the world with a fishing rod opens so many doors. You can catch your dinner in the smallest of streams by the roadside, or hop on a local’s boat and explore the ocean. Different fishing rods are good for different things, so here’s a list of my favourite travel rods, and what I think they’re useful for."
The article also features travel rods from other brands like Abu Garcia, Diawa, Shakespear and Kastking, so the author has definitely taken an unbiased approach! If you have time to read the article (we highly recommend it), click here!
