All depends on what sort of fishing you want to do and where you are going to fish

I prefer float on a reel, you get more of a feel for a fish. You can play a fish better with a rod. Poles are better for hitting an exact spot on a lake and do work well! A lot of bother putting bits together though! Rod and reel all the way !

If your fishing rivers a rod and reel are going to be better and as minty said the scrap is better

If you want to fish in matches or generally improve your catch rate you can't ignore pole fishing for the majority of float based fishing. If you start using a pole it can add another dimension. Your shallow fishing will be dramatically improved (if you persevere, can be tricky to do well) and can also allow you to use ultra soft baits such as paste

Can't beat the pole more exact better presentation and easy to use if you stick to it and get plenty practice , I have used the pole for trotting on a river found it better than a rod , you can keep it following a nice straight trot down the swim . Give it a go you will enjoy it :-)

The pole is a good woe pon if used properly, but takes the casting away and the accuracy, can't beat a simple rod n reel personally

I think it can be a question of "horses for courses" depending on the venue you fish. A local club water I fish is predominately done with a pole because it will out fish any other method on this lake, but on another club water I wouldn't dream of using a pole only a feeder. Pole fishing is a brilliant way of fishing but so is a rod and reel. I fish matches and most of the time I'll bait up an area, then go on the feeder for an hour or so, then fish the pole over these baited areas so it pays to be open minded. Hope this helps.
