Why use a pole rather than a rod and reel? Well, the right pole will enable you to fish with greater accuracy. You can place your bait exactly where you want it and there is little chance of any tangling. Your pole lets you seek out the subtle features you are looking for such as underwater ledges and depth changes.

You can hold your bait easily against the current and your hookbait behaves naturally. If you miss a bite then simply lift your rig from the water and then replace it in your chosen hotspot.

Types of Fishing Pole

There are three types of pole for you to consider. Margin poles are the shortest style and are generally up to 10m in length. These are strong poles which are designed for catching the large specimens which inhabit the margins.

Carp poles are extremely strong and are designed to take the strain out of catching large and powerful fish. Carp poles will not break under the stress of successive catches. These poles are available in lengths of 10m to 17m.

Match poles are the stiffest and lightest option and are designed to catch large volumes of small to medium sized fish. They lend themselves to precision and are generally 14m to 16m in length. Match poles are fashioned from the highest grade carbon and so are the most costly choice.

How to Choose the Perfect Pole

It is best to select the longest pole that your budget allows as this will give you the most flexibility. The longer the pole then the more areas and features you will be able to exploit. You don't need to fully extend the pole every time you use it and if you are a beginner you can practice your technique with the pole only partly extended.

The best poles are light and offer exceptional balance making it easier to hold the pole for an extended period of time. It is worth investing in the best pole that you can afford. Stiffer poles are easier to control in windy conditions and fish won't be bumped off when they strike due to excessive flex in the pole.
