When should I use an overhead rod?

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 oversized grips and powerful butt sections also provide fish stopping leverage when you need it most.
