Fiberglass fishing pole and reel

A fishing rod is a tool used for catching fish. The rod is often used to cast an artificial bait 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 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.
