A Closer Look at Graphene Are These the Fishing Rods of the Future

Graphene is an extremely durable material and in the near future, we may witness modern fishing rods incorporating this amazing and cutting-edge substance.

Traditional fishing rods have been constructed from wood or fibreglass for decades. While there is no doubt that these materials have proven useful, many Australian fishing enthusiasts are constantly looking to employ the latest technologies to enhance their experiences. This dream may soon become a reality thanks to an incredible substance known as graphene. But what is it and how may it benefit the fishing community as a whole?

Graphene Defined

In the simplest of terms, graphene is constructed from a very thin layer of carbon atoms. These atoms are constructed in a honeycomb-like configuration; allowing for incredible tensile strength and durability. Interestingly enough, graphene has already been used extensively on the Space Shuttle.


Selecting the Right Materials for your Camping Tent

Your choice of camping tent is one aspect that will influence how well that trip turns out. The best way to get the right tent is not to think of it as just a shelter from the elements. If you are an avid camper, then a camping tent will be required for most trips, making it a valuable investment.

When looking at camping tents for sale in Western Australia, one buying tip is to know about the different materials. A tent comes with an inside textile which should allow breathing and an outside fabric that has a variety of material options. When you have an idea of what each material offers, it will make the decision less challenging.


Nylon is a common pick because it offers a lightweight tent that is easy to carry around, particularly when backpacking. The disadvantage with nylon though is that it degrades under sun exposure, but manufacturers solve that by adding coatings usually of silicone, polyurethane or acrylic.

Rods, Tackle and the Benefit of Professional Advice

Most people tend to get into angling after a friend’s recommendation of the hobby, and invariably if the friend is a sea angler, they will try beach or boat fishing. Alternatively, a freshwater angler will recommend to try freshwater fishing. But what of those contemplating the hobby with no-one to guide them in one direction or another?

For the complete novice who has no guide, whether they wish to try freshwater or saltwater fishing, they should go for general purpose rods, reels and tackle. Don’t begin species fishing, whether fresh or saltwater, until you have spent time mastering how to use your equipment.
