      Comments about Shakespeare Travel Mate 66" Telescopic Medium Rod Kit:

      I love this rod. I live in Chicago and ride my bike to go fishing. This rod is perfect for throwing in my backpack or on my rack and heading out to wherever destination I pick. I've had a bit of trouble with the line tangling, but I may just need to figure out a trick for it.

            I carry the unit in my work vehicle so that I can stop and fish when I need a break during the work day. I have several lures that I use stored in the kit and that makes it easier to use
