Get your kiddo fishing today with these top 3 setups!

This picture is the goal:

A young fisherwomen enthralled with a tackle box of treasure in front of her! Teaching the magic of fishing and instilling it into our children’s minds takes time, and proper planning to be successful. It is discouraging when nothing is caught, or you show up to a fishing spot only to discover that your new children’s rod didn’t come with its own line. We all have those horror stories! My first time fishing we were trailing the line off of our sailboat. Well… the line wasn’t attached to the spool and in no time disappeared behind us. That was the quick ending of my first fishing experience!

Thankfully, I gave it another chance after that disappointment!

Oh… and might I mention, that before we even got on the boat my mother shut the car window on my new fishing pole and snapped a foot of the rod right off! Therefore, I can speak from first hand experience that these telescopic rods are the way to go!

Check out our list of favorites and get your kid hooked on fishing ASAP!

Check out this compact rod for beginners!

Some outdoor activities require gear that costs more money than you would like to spend to find out if you even like the activity or not. You know the feeling? The cool thing about fishing is that there are very cost effective ways to get your feet wet (pun intended). Meet the EBIYO Fishing Pole: This super compact combo is one of those fabulous options!

We love how compact this rod is, making it not only convenient for the tiny members of the family, but also an awesome accessory to have while camping, backpacking, or in the emergency entertainment bucket in the car!

Measuring four feet, six inches in length, the rod features six adjustable sections that collapse to just 13.7 inches. The rod’s fiberglass, ABS and silicone construction keep it lightweight, coming in at 4.7 ounces. When not in use, your child can keep their rod in the included sleek black carry case. Made from quality fabric, it features convenient handles and a side pocket perfect for storing tackle, line and other fishing gear. The package also includes an easy-to-use spincast reel, fishing line and a plastic cap that fits over the rod to protect the guide rings in transit. 

You’ll be sure to feel fly while casting with this sleek rod!
