Switzerland (Liestal (BL))
The longest fishing rod measures 22 m 45 cm (73 ft 7 in) and was created by Schweizerischer Fischereiverband (Switzerland) and was presented and measured in Liestal, Switzerland, on 19 June 2011. The fishing rod was made from the same materials than a regular fishing rod would be made from. The blanks of the different sections are made out of different layers of carbon fibres, the handle was made out of a combination of carbon fibres and bamboo, silk was used for the wrapping, rings and varnish were standard components used in today’s rod building.
