Here is another treasure hunt on the river. No metal detector was used, just swimming around and looking. I find a creepy doll, tons of fishing gear, rings and a perfect camera. I hope you enjoy!

This week we have a very informative video for you on how to choose a fishing rod. Often when you go to the store to buy a fishing rod, you can be overwhelmed with all the different types of rods.
In this video we explain the different types of fishing rods and what they are best suited for.
We cover fast tip fishing rods versus a slow tip; medium action, heavy action, and light action rods; as well as the difference between fiberglass fishing rods and graphite rods.
This guide explains things you need to know before you buy a new fishing rod.
As always, good fishin!
I took my new carbon telescopic fishing pole and all metal reel and walked out to the lake on the property to try my luck at catching some dinner.
I had to put some fishing line on the new reel first so I hooked it up to the pole and ran the line through the eyes of the fishing pole. Then I tied one end of the fishing line onto the spool of the reel. All I had to do was secure the spool of fishing line and reel it all in on the fishing reel until it was full. This is the easiest way to get fishing line on a new reel in my opinion.
After tying on a swivel I got to test out my new gear. I am quite impressed with the feel of the backpackers fishing rod. It is a light and sensitive carbon rod. Fully extended it is about 6 feet long but collapses into a short rod that fits nicely into a backpack. The screw on reel mount is all metal and seems like nice quality.
The fishing reel is also all metal and of a very surprising quality considering that it costs less than retail. I think it is the best feeling reel I ever had in my hands.
Another nice thing is that when I am walking from place to place around the lake all I have to do is collapse the telescoping fishing pole and push a button on the side of the fishing reel handle and the handle folds neatly to the side. Like this the combo takes up less space and is easy to carry around or pack away for a hike.
The combo casts nicely and operates very smoothly. The reel is virtually silent and very smooth.
After a couple casts I got a small bass. The rod and reel handled the fish nicely and I got him in with ease. He was too small to keep so I let him go for another day.
A few more casts got me some nibbles but I did not land anything. It has been raining so much that the fish are not really hungry although I can see them hanging out at the top of the water.
I will do some more fishing with this set later on after we have had a couple days with no rain and see what I can catch.
I love this new set though and would highly recommend it to others. The retail price on the telescopic fishing rod is only .99 and the reel is under .
This fishing rod would be perfect for anyone who is into hiking, backpacking, camping or survival. Because it comes with a nice top protector you can toss it into your backpack or the trunk of your car without fear of breaking off the tip. The folding handle on the reel is also very convenient. The quality of both means that it will last for many years and you can rely on them.
I have put the links to them below for anyone that may be interested.
Thank you very much Banggood for an awesome back packing fishing rod and reel.
