Four of 2016’s Best Fishing Rods

As all avid fishermen know, there is no such thing as owning too many fishing rods. Different ones have different uses, and you have to have a few extra that can be passed down to your children and grandchildren as you teach them the trade. And if you are planning a trip to Lawrence Bay Lodge this season, you are probably thinking about purchasing a new rod to celebrate the occasion. There have been plenty of great models introduced this year, and Field & Stream has the lowdown on the top ten.

Four of their top ten selections are great for catching the trout and walleye you will find in Reindeer Lake.

Abu Garcia Venerate

Easy to cast and comfortable to hold, the Abu Garcia Venerate is a lightweight rod perfect for reeling in trout. Titled “Best of the Test” for panfish and trout by Field & Stream, this rod boasts titanium alloy guides, zirconium inserts and a carbon locking hood design.

Bass Pro Shop’s Micro Lite

Titled “Best Value” for panfish and trout, Bass Pro Shops Micro Lite is a well-priced spinning rod great for first-timers and individuals teaching the ins and outs of trout fishing to their children. Its graphite design makes it sturdier than most other rods in its price range and it has a comfortable cork grip that will allow for hours of fun out on the water.

St. Croix Legend Elite

Walleye’s “Best of the Test”, the St. Croix Legend Elite received rave reviews from the team at Field & Stream. Why? From its impressive sensitivity to its beautiful frame, this rod is an all-around incredible piece of craftsmanship.
