Roger Surgay Signature Series Rods
WITH a passion for angling heritage, and inspired by rods such as Richard Walker’s Classic Mk IV Carp rod, leading fishing tackle businessman Roger Surgay has released three retro-style rods.
The Trent Trotter, Old School Carp and Warwickshire Avon have many of the original features found on rods that were around 40 or 50 years ago.
The Trent Trotter is an 11 ft, three-piece waggler rod, the Warwickshire Avon an
11 ft, two-piece Avon-style design, and the Old School Carp rod is a 12 ft, two-piece model.
They’ve all been built on glass blanks, with weighted cork handles, to balance the tip, double leg eyes that have been specially treated, and light, alloy reel rings and white spigots.
