Choose a length. The length of a rod is measured from the tip all the way to the end of the butt. Fishing rods range in length from about four feet all the way up to fourteen feet. Larger rods often dissemble into several pieces for easier transportation.
What are good fishing poles?
For a strong, light pole, try a graphite rod. Make sure you get good quality graphite. A high-modulus graphite pole will be stiff and thus cast most accurately. The length of a good fishing pole for freshwater and light saltwater fishing should range from 5.5 to 6.5 feet.

Once you know the types of fish available, you can easily look up the types of bait they are attracted to.
