Hi,

My father-in-law is an avid angler.
Was planning to gift him a fishing rod that would be suitable for river fishing.

I have got no clue about this and thought i might get some help from you guys.
Last year I had got him one telescopic rod with a spinning wheel (but missed out on getting the fishing line (yeah... am that ignorant).

I was told (not directly though) that this was not suitable for river fishing.

So, any inputs will be of great help.

Warm regards,
A

I use both a 2 piece rod and a Abu Garsia telescopic rod which works well for river fishing, especially when one want to cast quickly when moving from spot to spot. A tip do not get the telescopic rod wet then it becomes difficult to close it.
