Proper Length for Bait Casting Rods

For practical angling it is now pretty generally conceded that the proper length for the casting rod lies somewhere between 5 1/2 and 6 feet. Personally I have cast with a Henshall rod, 8 1/4 feet, a 7-foot rod, a 5 1/4foot rod, and a 6-foot rod. With each of these I have had a good deal of experience under various conditions, and I have talked and fished much with other anglers who used rods of other lengths. For all round fishing the six-foot rod is, it seems to me, by far the best. The average length of the original "Kalamazoo” casting rods was less than five feet; and for long distance tournament work rods of 5 1/4 to 5 1/2 feet are the most common. But the casting rod for fishing must be adapted to landing a bass as well as to mere casting; and, within reasonable limits, the wise angler will sacrifice casting distance to efficient bass-handling. It has been proven by the experience of a multitude of bait-casters, certainly by my own experience, that the very short rods are mighty poor tools with which to land a bass. The rod, however, must not be too long, for this will make the overhead cast a matter of too much difficulty. In fishing, the side and overhead cast will be used impartially. The six-foot rod is long enough to handle a bass well, and short enough for overhead casting; in fact, it answers all the requirements of the bait-casting rod. The six-foot rod is hereby recommended.
