4 Piece Travel Fishing Rods

If you are an avid angler, you probably like to get away every now and then from the over crowded, popular fishing locations. Even though they are convenient, popular fishing waters get a lot of fishing pressure and can be more difficult to fish as a result. Getting away to more remote waters is a great way to find pristine fishing waters full of native species - not to mention getting away from the cares of the world.

If you like to travel while you fish, there are special fishing rods that will allow you to take along lightweight, compact gear without adding a ton of bulk and weight to your baggage. This is especially important to backpackers who like to hike to remote fishing locations, as they will be limited to how much weight they can carry. Utilizing 3 or 4 piece travel fishing rods helps you travel light and compact, being able to take your fishing rod on a plane, in a boat, or in your pack.

Using break-down fishing rods really cuts down on bulk. Most fly fishing rods are long, sometimes more than 9 feet. Having a fly rod that breaks down into 4 or more pieces really makes it a portable fishing option suitable for travel. Add a lightweight reel and a small amount of tackle, and you are ready to go on a fishing trip to a remote fishing location.

Another travel fishing option is by utilizing a telescoping fishing rod. These fishing rods collapse down to 10-14 inches from 6 feet long or more. A lot of times these telescoping rods come with a lightweight reel, which makes the entire package very portable. These kits are perfect for backpacking getaways to remote fishing locations. There currently isn't a reliable telescoping fly fishing rod on the market. If you are an avid fly fisherman and want to fly fish, you will have to go with the break down models.

The quality of break apart models is getting better and better as rod manufacturers are finding new ways to build them. Fly fishing rods that have 4 or 5 pieces used to lack feel, and the taper seemed lost at each junction. Now-a-days, 4 or 5 piece fly rods are as good as single piece rods when it comes to the ability to cast a tight loop.

Whether you fly fish and you utilize a 3 or 4 piece rod, or you are a backpacker using a telescoping fishing rod, getting away from popular fishing locations is a great way to explore new fishing waters. Invest in good telescoping or 4 piece travel fishing rods for your next fishing trip. Happy fishing!
