This is a real darling of a tench/bream rod worthy of any sporting angler who enjoys the thrill of the fight, rather than just being concerned with landing fish quickly.
The two-piece 11ft 6in blank has a pleasing semi-through action that will happily fish a float or 28g feeder at shorter ranges. It’s especially effective when you’re targeting the marginal shelf.
Using reel lines to 8lb you can sit the rod on an electronic alarm with a legered bait/feeder set-up, fish a float or freeline a lobworm down the edge or up against a lily bed. It also makes a smashing little stalker rod for the mobile angler. I fish one of these with a centrepin and absolutely love it!
It will cover you for a wide range of specialist jobs like fishing a maggot feeder for big roach or even fishing a floating dog biscuit for surface carp.
