    Total length when extended: 52cm (21”)
    Length of ‘pen’ when retracted:18cm (7”)

    I like the looks of the 8" Long Pen Spinning Rod. Catching bream or crappie would be a blast!

    Laugh at me freely
    Besides fishing do you have some interesting use for this?

    EDC Fishing Kit

    I know quite a few of you EDC fishing gear, even if it is only hook and line in a SpyCap.

    Anyhoo, I have stumble across a little something. Done a search and couldn't find it on here so I thought I'd post it. Nearly ended up in the Pen Section mind.


    Please note I have no idea on its quality...

    Fishing Rod - In a PEN!!!

    Those pen poles are garbage. Think of it as one time use only. If you want a small fishing pole to throw in your BOB then check this link out: Emmrod Action

    I am a fisherman that has taken EDC concepts and started to apply them to my tackle. Micro rods with crap reels don't seem worth the expense or carry space. If any of us ever get "cast away'd", I think the best chance is a jungle boy coke bottle + 50 lb test mono with a spoon setup. In that case just be sure to carry some high test braided line and a few lures.

    I invested in a nice St. Croix 4 piece rod last summer with a meat and potatoes Shimano spinning reel and it has served me very well. On normal outings, not just as a backup. I have caught bass and pike that snapped my line they were too big for it haha. Four or six pound test, came with it's own tube, very sturdy. I use a carabiner to clip the tube to a loop in my pants/shorts while I fish, or leave it on the shore.

    This type of setup is great for EDC conscious fisherman who may also be pressed on gear space on family trips or other outings where fishing isn't the primary reason for going out. The last thing I want to be is somewhere that looks full of fish without a rod and reel. A quality travel rod and "worth it" reel (I'd say the combo is about $200) can actually be enjoyed as real fishing equipment, and it's compact also. I carried this in the trunk of my car this summer and stopped on the way home some days at a nearby pond. Walking to the spot it would be impossible to make me out for a fisherman.

    I am getting interested in getting a fishing kayak at some point. The process of equipping yourself to be mobile, safe and geared while solo in a mobile watercraft (with fishfinder!) is definitely gonna be a grand EDC adventure.

    These aren't my pics, but from a review.
