7. Why Do I Believe In Grandt Custom Made Fishing Rods
This is a question that I am often asked. I am an angler that has improved my ability to catch fish over the years. My fishing buddy, Roger and I have an approach to fishing that puts on fish more often than not. Yet over the first part of my experience, I was outfished on a regular basis. Roger had a knack of feeling the fish that I do not have. Frequently the fishing gear and rigging were the same. I knew I did not have good feel in my hands and it was frustrating when I did not keep up with Roger.
At a sports show I visited an exhibit by Grandt Industries. I was hestitant to believe all the “hype” about how sensitive the custom fishing rods were until a salesman made me performed an experiment. He loosely tied a piece of fishing line (maybe 15 inches) to the top quide of a rod. As I held the custom fishing rod, the salesman flicked his finger against the line. I could not believe it – I actually felt the vibration in my hand. It had traveled down the rod to the handle where I was holding the rod. He did it again and I felt it again. This custom fishing rod was amazingly sensitive compared to the rods I had been using. I decided to buy one and see if it helped me catch fish. This rod turned out to be the best tackle investment I had made.
Since then, my fish catching ability has increased significantly. Through the years I have added more Grandt Industries fishing rods to my collection. Each highly sensitive custom fishing rod was for a specific purpose. In the spring of 2012 I was amazed at the sensitivity of a medium heavy custom made fishing rod purchased. Fishing for tarpon the first time, my wife and I were drift fishing off the coast of Costa Rica using a sardine as bait. I had about 75 yards of line out with a 2 ounce wait. Incredibly I felt a tarpon “bump” the sardine. I had the patience not to set the hook immediately and waited a few seconds until I felt the weight of the fish. After setting the hook and playing the fish for nearly 30 minutes, I landed the tarpon shown on the home page.
I am now competitve with Roger in our contests we have because of the greater sensitivity of each custom made fishing rods I now use. Whether I am drift fishing, using a bottom bounce, jigging or casting, these are the best fishing rods available for anglers that need a sensitive rod to feel the fish.
