For most of my life I have lived near a large body of water. I count myself as extremely fortunate that this was the case because it added to what I loved doing every single day: fishing. Fishing has always had a huge importance within my family.
It brought generations together, starting with my great grandfather who was a fisherman on the East Coast. He loved fishing and he would take my grandfather and my great uncle out on the boat to teach them all he knew.
This inspired my grandfather to also become a fisherman, and then the journey continued with my own father. The tradition was also passed on to my older brother, who to this day is an avid fisherman.
Unfortunately, for my father, I did not take up the torch that was laid out before me. This was nothing to do with him, but my choice and mine alone. I was just drawn to the city, and always wanted to become a lawyer. Eventually that is exactly what I did, although I never forgot what he told me.
Last year was a fascinating year in my life. At work, I had never been so stressed before. Each and every day, work was piling up on my desk and I was working incredibly late hours. On top of that, my wife and I had our first baby and there were many sleepless nights because of him.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved being a father, but it did not help my stress one bit. I needed a way to calm my brain and help me sleep. That is when my wife suggested I go out to a river near by and take a small boat out.
I thought it was silly at first, but I took her advice and it changed my life. Being out on the calm water, I realized this was just what I needed. There is something about the fresh air and being with nature that truly calms a person.
If you work at a desk all day or are always in the city, I strongly encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and go out to the country, or just on an open area of water somewhere. You will be shocked at how great you feel.
I have taken it upon myself to share my thoughts on fishing rods that you should buy. Since I have taken up fishing again I feel that I know what is good and what is not.
One of the fishing rods on the market today is the Pflueger President Spinning Reel and Rod Combo. It has been made to offer you the best experience while you are out on your boat fishing.
The Pflueger President Spinning Reel and Rod Combo is made to give you the most features possible. The features include:
- 9 Stainless Steel Ball Bearings (6920 has 6 ball bearings)
- On/Off instant anti-reverse bearing
- Lightweight graphite body and rotor
- Machined ported and double anodized Braid ready aluminum spool
- Smooth multi-disc drag system with stainless steel and oiled felt washer
- Extremely highend
- Very smooth and sensitive fishing rod
- Best light tackle rod
- Incredibly priced deal
- Worked amazing
- Unbelievable combo
- There are no cons here!
That being said, I think the Pflueger President Spinning Reel and Rod Combo is a fantastic buy. It truly is a great combo and for the price, it is so worth every penny. I have used a lot of various brands over my time fishing and any product that comes from Pflueger has always been an elite product that is well made and well built.
What is so great about the President model is how smooth and sensitive the fishing rod is. It is so light and easy to manoeuvre and I generally use this rod in shallow salt water. I have caught a lot of fish with it and I couldn’t be happier.
I strongly recommend you take the plunge and buy a fishing rod. You will be surprised how common this “sport” can be and how it will expand your appreciation for what fishermen do!
