This rod is just great. The feel of it immediately lets you know it is of top quality construction that will outlast many others.
I rate the emmrod as great. I used it for the first or second time and caught a nice 4 pound channel cat. The area I fished had low level trees, and only the emmrod was able to fish the spot without getting tangled. It is the most unique fishing rod and reel combo I have ever owned. And I have been fishing over 40 years. There is only one major problem I have and it's all on me, what do I do with all my other fishing rods.
When backpacking or planning for emergency situations, food will always be at the forefront and fishing is much more viable than hunting.
It takes a little getting used to, but is a riot once you get you pitch down. I have found that heavier weight lures work best....the take up is a little too long with live bait, resulting in a higher percentage of swallows/gut hooks. Best yet....it fits in my golf bag, so when my partner is taking forever to line up a putt, I can sight cast pond largemouth and catfish!
First time out, I was the only one in my group to catch a fish !!!! I love it and so did everyone else, some were even a little jealous !!!!
Although I haven't fished with this yet I'm really impressed with the quality. I did go out in the yard one day and cast a 1/4 oz jig around and it was great. Can't wait to get out in the boat and kayak when it warms up.
This is an awesome rod to have in your arsenal. For canoeing, you don't have 6 feet of rod to mess with while trying to paddle about. It has a different cast from a standard rod and reel and takes a little bit of practice. I still haven't figured out the slingshot method, perhaps I'm too nervous about sticking a hook in my hand while trying to do it. Standing shoreside with little kids running around, I can cast with fewer worries of hooking a nice 2-3 foot child. The hook is kept close to the tip and with a flick of the wrist I can send it out a good 50-60 feet. And I don't have to worry about the kids as much. It takes a little muscling to break it down, but I'm okay with that. I will get some good mileage out of it.
I have been using this pole for a few weeks doing community fishing on Arizona. At first it was a little hard to cast. I have gotten used to casting this pole with good accuracy. To date I have caught two trout, three bluegill, and six catfish. Looking forward to buying extra rods for other fishing situations.
Strong and very compact fishing tool,it can be easily packed to my backpack, this tool is the first choice for my long term outdoor fishing activities.Excellent design!
