Choosing the right fishing rod length is one of the most important factors to consider when you decide to buy a fishing rod. Combined with the other factors like the material used, weight, action, reel, handle, etc., picking a rod from so many might seem daunting at first. But, it is not so different from buying the right pair of training canvass: you need to purchase what you are very comfortable with.
That said, the fishing rod length is also determined by a number of other factors. For instance, the length of the rod would depend on where you want to fish, the size of the boat and to a lesser extent, the type fish you want to catch.
