There is a lot to consider with angling choices, including the option for an overhead rod and overhead reel setup. Overhead rods are the ideal boat fishing rod in unison with an overhead reel, being a little shorter than surf rods and other longer fishing rods. Overhead rods are great game rods for deep sea fishing, and Anaconda partners with premium brands such as Daiwa, Jarvis Walker, Berkley, Penn, Abu Garcia, Okuma and Ugly Stik to ensure you have exactly the right fishing rod and fishing reel combo for a successful outing.

Overhead rods are designed with power and strength in mind to pull those bigger fish up from the depths but still be sensitive enough to feel the lightest of bites. Overhead rods are often used when fishing from boats and are designed with the reel on top of the rod with the guides placed fairly close together so as to not let the line touch the rod blank. There are a range of sizes from five feet right up to eight feet in length and depending on the depth of water and fish species being targeted the taper of the rod will vary either slow, medium or fast.

Overhead fishing rods are specifically designed for getting the better of those serious fish. They are built to virtually indestructible standards and incorporate the most robust components and hardware. The oversize grips and powerful butt sections also provide fish stopping leverage when you need it most. Overhead fishing rods are designed to fight hard and withstand serious battles with species such as marlin, tuna and sailfish. If you are in the hunt for a trophy or record fish then an overhead fishing rod is the right choice for you, and you have an excellent choice of branded overhead fishing rods here at Anaconda.
