to the whip or hooks and what fish you are after

when me and my brother first bought a pair of 5m whips we also had trouble hoking the fish.We simply made the whip shorter to 3m.this helps you to hold the pole and hook fish more easily than you can with it at 5m.Get the hang of the whip before you go on to pole fishing.
