Depends on what he's fishing for. A good all purpose rod would be a 7' medium action spinning rod paired with a spinning reel that holds 150-200yds of 12 lb test line. Ugly stick rods are unbreakable and fairly cheap, look into those.

Good luck, hope it helps

I second the Ugly Stick. Good rod, small price.

A "travel rod" (two or three piece) would be good for this as well...
