What kind of fishing rod should I get?

I would like to get my dad a fishing rod for Father’s Day, because you know he LOVES fishing and isn’t able to go fishing like he used to anymore. He’s no expert fisher man, but he does know how to use a fishing rod, so which one should I buy? Any websites selling fishing rods would be fantastic.

Thanks in advance
I know it’s mother’s day I’ve taken care of her gift.

Anything at $100 and below. :)

How far should I be able to cast a line with a baitcast reel.

I have been using spinning reels for over 20 years, but got into using baitcast reels because I am looking into catching bass and stuff. Well, when i cast my line using my baitcast reel it only goes about 20 yrds. Is that usual or should be it be way more? If anyone has any tips or anything please let me know. I have been using a rapala DT04 due to it carrying a little more weight so my cast is a little further.

Which of these spinner reels should I get?

I’m planning on buying my first fishing rod soon. I don’t really have any specific fish I’m going for, but I want to be able to get trout, bass, whatever I can sink a hook into.
Anyway, I’ve decided to get a reel on the shimano ix line. Any thoughts on whether I should get a 1000 or a 2000? I don’t really want to overdo it, but I am leaning towards a medium 6′ ugly Stik rod.
Any help would be appreciated.
