Comment Choisir une Canne à Pêche

When you use the right fishing rod, you have the best chance of a successful fishing trip. Check out the tips from our experts below to choose the perfect fishing rod for your experience level. 

MATÉRIAU

Fibre de verre :: Fibreglass rods are heavier but provide a great value and are very durable. They are ideal for beginners but can handle larger fish. 

Composite : Most anglers will use glass fibre or graphite composite rods. They are lighter than fiberglass and more affordable and durable than pure graphite rods.

Graphite: Well-seasoned fishers may prefer a graphite rod for its superior lightness and strength. They give the angler more fighting power and can handle most fishing situations. 

LONGUEUR

5’6” to 6’: Ces cannes courtes sont idéales pour les débutants et les enfants. Elles permettent de faire des lancers plus courts et elles sont faciles à contrôler, ce qui permet d’améliorer sa technique. Elles s’utilisent avec des petits appâts.

6’ to 7’: Medium length rods work well for people fishing at an intermediate level. They allow you to have more control and do longer casts at a time. 

6’6” to 8’: The most experienced angler will prefer a longer rod. These are better for use in open areas. They also have longer casts and can handle bigger bait to attract larger fish. 

FLEXIBILITÉ

Fast Action: Fast Action rods bend mostly near the tip. They detect subtle strikes when jigging and are ideal for surface lures. 

Medium Action: The front half of medium action rods bend, which makes them perfect for live fish baiting. 

Action lente : Slow Action rods are the most flexible, bending over the entire length. They are ideal for absorbing pressure when fighting a big fish.
