Collapsible Fishing Rod Review

Collapsible fishing rod kits are an invaluable tool when venturing into the backcountry for a fishing adventure. Backcountry fishing allows you to get away from the casual fishermen and enjoy nature while you fish pristine waters. Remote fishing locations are rarely fished, which means the fish are not as finicky about their feeding habits, which makes it easier to land more fish.

Getting into the backcountry requires some planning and preparation. There are a few ways to get away - float plane, boat, off road vehicle, horseback, or on foot. Backpacking is a great way to explore new terrain and find new fishing holes. If you plan your trip along a river or stream, you will be able to locate fishing holes as you go, so you will not only be able to fish at your destination, but along the way as well.

Backpacking requires that you pack as lightly as possible. Heavy, bulky items, such as your fly fishing combo, waders, and boots will need to stay behind. If you are carrying things on your back that are essential for your survival, then heavy, non-essential items will have to be left behind. That is where collapsible fishing rod kits come in.

With these kits, you will be able to carry along a compact, portable, and lightweight package that will allow you to quickly and easily catch fish. There are many collapsible fishing rods on the market, ranging from under $20 up to over $100. Telescopic rods are collapsible and quickly deploy for fishing and quickly stow for hiking. Break apart fishing rods are another option, but they aren't as quick and portable as the telescopic models. Before you run out and buy a kit, shop around. Check out online fishing outfitters websites for deals. The most important thing to do when shopping is to read a collapsible fishing rod review on the model that interests you. This will help you make an informed decision when buying one.

One of the best collapsible fishing combos out there when it comes to quality and price is the Eagle Claw Pack It Telescopic fishing combo pack. For around $25, you will be getting a telescopic rod that extends to 5 feet 6 inches long and collapses down to a very portable package. It also comes with a small, lightweight spinning reel that features an aluminum disc drag and 1 ball bearing. This isn't the best spinning reel available, but it is sufficient for backcountry fishing.

Bring along a collapsible fishing rod kit with you on your next backpacking trip. You will find that they are easy to set up and fish with, and you won't have to lug around your entire fishing setup. Happy fishing!
