Hey there, my name is Sean – MiStinger Fishing is my site. I’m located here in the US but I’ve been fortunate enough to catch bass in the UK, barracuda in Australia, trout here at home and carp on the Danube delta.
If I’m not fishing, or talking about fishing, then….I’m probably asleep or watching fishing competitions on TV.
You just can't match seeing your float bob about on a summers dawn morning, with the mist coming in off the lake as all of the wildlife wakes around you - this is actually what I would call heaven! Whether you're looking for a baitcasting reel as a beginner (or a cheap one under $100) or you're looking to catch a big tough musky (which requires a gear that can handle them) we have all in depth guides on specific reels (including crankbait reels) covered so you can have confidence your reel meets your fishing need.
For a lot of us float fishing was the first way we caught a fish, it certainly was for me anyway. And for those of you who like float fishing (or even for the match fishing enthusiasts), we've pulled together a comprehensive list of the best float fishing reels available on the market today. One of my favourite reels is the Daiwa Spinning Reel.
Don't be fooled into thinking the best reel for you has to cost you the earth. There are some absolute gems in our review articles, especially these spinning reels (and these spinning reels under $50), that really won't cost you a fortune! Here you can take a look at an absolute classic that is still a big favorite among the fishing fraternity.
If you're looking for a new fishing rod you're in the right place. A fishing rod is a long, flexible rod used by us fishermen to catch fish. In the simplest form, a fishing rod is a basic stick or pole attached to a line ending in a hook - previously known as an angle, hence the term angling! Fun fact for you there. The length of a rod can vary between 2 and 20 feet or between 0.5 and 6 m. To attract the fish, bait or lures are impaled on one or more hooks attached to the line. The line is generally stored on a reel which reduces tangles and assists in landing a fish.
Historically rods are manufactured from bamboo, while modern rods are usually made from fibreglass or carbon fibre. The modern material makes rods much lighter in weight. Fishing rods are used in both recreational fishing and competitive casting. Rods can come in many sizes, actions, lengths and configurations, all of which is dictated by what size of fish you are looking to use it to catch - small, medium or large. Or what type of water fresh or salt water environments. But whatever rod you're looking for we have you covered with our in depth posts here at mistinger.com.
