How Do You Put a Fishing Rod Together?

Putting a fishing rod together can be a daunting task, especially if you are unfamiliar with the pieces and components of a fishing rod. But, with the right knowledge and practice, it is easy to put together a fishing rod in no time. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you get started:

Step 1: Start by gathering all the necessary components of the fishing rod. This will include the rod itself, line guides, reel seat, handle, reel, line and lures. Make sure that all the pieces fit together properly before starting.

Step 2: Now it’s time to assemble the rod. Start by attaching the reel seat to the end of the rod and make sure it’s securely fastened. Then attach each of the line guides to the top of the blank in order from smallest to largest.

Step 3: Once you have attached all of your line guides, it’s time to attach your handle. There are two main types of handles; cork or EVA foam handles.

Cork handles are typically more comfortable and provide more grip than EVA foam handles do. Make sure that your handle is firmly attached to your blank before moving on.

Step 4: Now it’s time to attach your reel and spool up your line. Attach your reel onto the bottom of your handle and make sure that it is secure before threading your line through each guide starting from smallest to largest until you reach your reel spool which will be located at the bottom most part of your rod blank.

Step 5: Now that you have attached all necessary components onto your blank its time to add some lures! Choose whichever type of lure fits best for what type fish you are looking for and attach them onto a jig head or hook depending on what type lure you choose.

That’s it! You now have an assembled fishing rod ready for use!

Putting together a fishing rod may seem intimidating at first but with patience and practice anyone can learn how to assemble a fishing rod in no time! Just remember these simple steps and soon you’ll be reaping all sorts of rewards from successful catches.
