What kind of different types of fishing are there?

My uncle and i went fishing and he used this rod but it did’nt have a reel. instead, it was held parallel to the water and a floating stick was at the end of the line. when a fish bit, the stick would sink or rise and he would pull the rod up with fish. i was wondering what this kind of fishing is called.

What makes Different fishing rods better for different applications? casting vs spinning. flipping vs jigging?

I have fished for a long time, but always with combos that cost no more than $60. I want some real gear but having a hard time choosing. When your willing to drop $200 + it gets a little more complicated. Thanks for any answers.
