    A 7-6 to 8’ medium power, fast action spinning rod will likely meet your needs.

    Which brand and model to buy will depend on rods available locally to see/touch (unless you buy online), opinion of those brands and your budget.

    Thanks. Maybe I worded my question wrong?
    I simply was looking for long casting multi conditions / species rod ideas. Not just for those ponds. Distance anywhere . the film gave me some thought fodder.

    Re: Long casting rod?

    The distance you can cast has a lot to do with the weight you are casting. And yes the longer the rod the more distance. In any event it sounds like you don’t have to cast
    “that” far. I think you’d be fine with most any decent spinning rod 7.5’ to 8’. You can cast a darn long way with an 8’ rod.
    My biggest concern I’d have would be getting the lure or bait back through the weeds. I assume you’re using weed less lures or hooks.

    All are variable. Worm on bobber to top water frogs some weeds are smaller other patches are quite large. these are no watercraft or wading. I am looking for the most distance. I can cast shorter.

    Long casting rod?

    I have a couple of ponds with weeded edges.
    I am thinking a long spinning rod let me cast farther out to the open water.
    Any opinions or suggestions as to length /rod brand /model or other ideas?
    Just mental floss as the weather is starting to get wet around here.
    Thanks.
