CHOOSE THE COR­RECT ROD AND REEL

Angling Times (UK) - - TIP & TACTICS -

Rods are like golf clubs – you should use dif­fer­ent ones to cast dif­fer­ent dis­tances. You wouldn’t use a sand wedge to drive 200 yards and like­wise you wouldn’t use a 10ft rod to cast 70 yards! If I want to cast 70 yards I’ll go for a 12ft 8ins Preston Dutch Mas­ter Method and if I want to cast even fur­ther than this, up to 100 yards, I’ll pick up the 13ft 8ins Dutch Mas­ter.

With these long rods go for a larger reel too, be­cause big­ger spools mean more line comes off at a time.

Re­place your 3000 and 4000 sized reels with, say, a 5000 ver­sion.
