Henshall Casting Rods
The Henshall casting rod, mentioned in the discussion of the bait-casting rod, or a rod of similar dimensions, should be used for casting the live minnow. This rod is 8 1/4 feet length and should be mounted as in the same way as the short casting rod. The short rod is not adapted to casting the natural minnow since the quick start of the overhead cast is too apt to snap off the bait. The line and reel are the same as for the shorter rod. The Henshall is a good rod, also, to use for casting light spoons and spinners. This style of casting rod is adapted only to the side cast.
