Rod length is measured from the end of your handle to the end of your rod’s tip and can heavily influence your casting abilities. In general, smaller fishing rods cast shorter distances, while longer fishing rods cast longer distances. Each type has a purpose, however. In situations where close combat is needed, anglers can benefit from using a shorter fishing rod. Shorter lengths can also help when fighting fish because they often have less bend than other longer options. Longer fishing rods excel in their ability to cast long distances, making them great for covering more water and fishing deep.

The length of a fishing rod typically ranges from 6-12 feet, so to choose a measurement for your needs, consider the type of fishing you plan to do, the species you are after and your fishing environment. A good length for beginner anglers is usually around 7 feet. This size can allow amateurs to have a balanced amount of casting distance and accuracy as they fine tune their skills through experience.
