The first patent for a Fishing pole

A fishing enthusiast Everett Horton from Bristol, Connecticut, was the inventor of the modern fishing pole. Awarded on Mar. 8′, 1887, the patent number 359,153 with the title Fishing Rod, his invention changed the way of this sport forever. His design improved the fishing rod by introducing a light and flexible material with protection against entanglement for the line. His invention improved the spring-tempered metallic tubular rod by adding metallic sections, a tip, passing the line through sections, and a pair of transversely folded metallic sections.
