Fiberglass fishing pole and reel

A fishing rod is a tool used for catching fish. The rod is often used to cast a lure to where the fish are. This is the way people catch fish for fun or sport. Commercial fishing is usually done using fishing nets.

A fishing rod is basically a line with bait on it, fixed on a pole. There is usually some way to make the line longer or shorter, and the pole it is fixed on can bend a little.
