Kind of like Swiss Army Knives, but for fishing rods, the Wormy Compact Fishing Rods ($180+) are a portable and multi-functional solution, so you can travel light and still be able to catch some fish. Plus, they’re build to last for decades.
These innovative rods use stainless steel spring poles (instead of the traditional collapsible models), together with CNC machined sea water-resistant 6061 T6 aluminum reel seats, and hardwood handles, which means they should be hard to break. They feature modular designs with removable triggers, allowing you to add any reel types, and, unlike other existing compact rods, the Wormys can be used for both casting or spinning methods. You can also swap the spring poles, depending on the size of fish you’re going for, so you can catch fish up to 22 lbs. Not bad for a fishing rod that can fit in your pocket. Details in the video via
