The only problem with a fishing-rod is that it is very long and quite cumbersome to carry around. But a fishing-trip just can't be complete without a fishing-rod, so here comes the concept of a telescopic fishing-rod. Here is a rod that is 20-30 feet long, but which can be accommodated in a foot-length of space.
Telescopic fishing-rods do just what harpoons did for primitive hunters. They helped hunters reach out long distances without going all the way themselves. Telescopic fishing-rods do the job of a telescope for you: they make it easier to shoot the target. Manufacturers of telescopic fishing-rods are confronted with the problem of designing a rod that is strong and sturdy and yet long and flexible.
This is where rods of carbon or graphite come into mind. They are light and easy to handle. Rods made of fiberglass are also going to serve the same purpose. Only a bit of research on the fishing-rods available for sale in online markets is going to give you a fair idea of the kind of fishing-rods you are looking for and the corresponding price.
Professional fishermen have a working knowledge of fishing-rods, so if you happen to know anyone engaged in the trade, be sure to consult him before you head out to buy a telescopic fishing-rod for yourself.
They are the ideal when it comes to the organization of hiking trips or a cross-country hike. Your telescopic fishing-rod can give you some tasty fishes to eat while your friends munch on the tinned food they have brought with them.
