Kid’s Fishing Gear for All Ages

Fishing is fun for adults, teens, and kids. Fishing gear today that is sold is age-appropriate to maximize safety while enjoying this family sport.

Fishing Pole Recommendations

It is best to start with a light rod and reel. These are easier to handle and make it easier for a person at any age to know when a fish is biting. Adults can usually use a fishing pole that is about 6 feet long, and child can use a rod about 4 to 5 feet long.

Therefore, the first step might be to borrow a pole and accessories from a friend if the teen or child (or even adult) is going to try fishing for the first time ever.

Kids fishing gear is often very individualized upon request as well. There are even specialty poles created in the theme popular characters such as Scooby Doo, Barbie, Batman, or Pirates of the Caribbean.

These themes appeal to the imaginations of younger children especially if they are just started fishing. Other more sophisticated models are available for adults and teens.
