Need to Buy a New Fishing Pole!

Looking to buy my dad a new fishing pole for Father's day. I know nothing about fishing poles!!! Can you guys advise me of what to get, look for, where to go, etc??? He has fishing poles but I can almost bet they are very basic and not so expensive. We want to get him a "nice" one.

Find out what he likes to fish for and where (pond, lake reservoir, river or ocean).

Armed with this, go to a good fishing tackle store to find out what type of tackle you should buy. You can then buy it there or go shopping. - Keep the receipt.

Nothing is worse than getting tackle as gift that you cannot use or are not comfortable, with.

Thanks Dick. I KNEW there was more to it than just a stick and some string!

It's just too confusing and too much info to gather that I threw on the gift getting to my older bro. Like, what's a tackle? I've never heard of a fishing tackle store! I don't know where my dad fishes or even likes to fish. I hate fishing...

I know it's probably not that difficult but I think it may be for a beginner like me.
