So much tackle and such amaz­ing value

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

MY SON would like a new float rod for Christ­mas so I thought I’d get in early and start look­ing at the lat­est kit to get a good deal.

Our house­hold hasn’t had much new tackle for a while and I couldn’t be­lieve the va­ri­ety on of­fer out there.

When I was younger it used to be one or two man­u­fac­tur­ers that took your eye with the kit they had on sale, but I must have come across rods that I am se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing buy­ing from seven or eight dif­fer­ent com­pa­nies.

Once I was in the tackle shop and sam­pling the rods that were on dis­play my de­ci­sion didn’t get any eas­ier, as all my po­ten­tial pur­chases seemed ex­cel­lent!

The other el­e­ment that im­pressed me was the vari­ances in pric­ing. It doesn’t mat­ter whether you have a few quid to spend or are work­ing on a bud­get, there are plenty of qual­ity items avail­able.

The tackle trade seems to be work­ing ex­tremely hard to im­press an­glers, and that can only be a good thing for those of us in the mar­ket for new kit.
