    Default Pack-rods

    Looking for a good pack rod. I work in the bush a lot and figured I might as well have a rod for my down time. Light-medium weight. Suggestions?

    I have an mini-spin rod that I don't love but that's adequate for my purposes (it catches fish). It packs down really small and the case it comes in has plenty of tackle storage while still fitting easily into a day pack. It might be too light for you, but it's handy.

    These are great and I own about five, some in spinning and a few casting. High quality 4 piece rods and they come with storage tube and sock. Great rods.

    There is some other stuff out now as well like this offering from St Croix.

    I picked this up last year. Don't remember if it was wally world or sportsmans. Works good on grayling, pike, and the occasional sheefish. They make a telescopic one too.

    After shopping for a while I bought two travel rods from Santiam. They are Chinese built but pretty good quality for the price. Easy to order and prompt shipment. I haven't really strained them a lot yet with heavy fish but I like their action. I bought the 8 1/2 foot spinning rods for fishing reds this July on the Kenai. By the way, there was a good thread earlier this year on the subject.
