How Do You Make a Fishing Rod Smaller?

Making a fishing rod smaller can be a great way to save space when packing for a fishing trip, or to make a fishing rod more suitable for certain types of fish. Whether you’re an experienced angler or just getting started, understanding the basics of how to make a fishing rod smaller is essential.

The first step in making your rod smaller is to remove the reel from the rod. This can usually be done by unscrewing the reel from the mount on the rod. Once this is done, use scissors or a knife to cut off any excess line that has been used for storing spare line.

The next step is to adjust the length of the rod itself.

This can be done by cutting off sections of the blank section at one end of the rod with a saw or knife. It is important to only cut off small sections at a time and test it until it reaches the desired length. Cutting off too much at once could damage your fishing rod and render it unusable.

If you are looking for an even more precise way of adjusting your rods length, you might consider using telescopic rods. These rods have several sections that can be adjusted to fit within each other, allowing you to adjust both length and weight depending on what kind of fish you are Targeting and where you are fishing.

Making a fishing rod smaller is not difficult but it does require patience and attention to detail in order to ensure that no damage occurs during the process. By removing excess line and adjusting either blank section or telescopic section lengths, anglers can easily customize their rods according to their personal preferences or Target fish species.
