Luke Ban­nis­ter

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Split-cane Rods -

Luke Ban­nis­ter’s rods are in­flu­enced by the type of fish­ing he en­joys, from small West­coun­try trout streams to Welsh rivers, from wild brown trout to bass in the surf. With enough care and at­ten­tion to de­tail cane rods can be made that cope with these dif­fer­ent chal­lenges. Tra­di­tional Gar­ri­son and Leonard ta­pers are avail­able along with the sig­na­ture Su­per­fast, which is de­signed to have a quick ac­tion for cane and there­fore feel more fa­mil­iar to the an­gler who is used to fish­ing with a car­bon rod (all rods are priced at £925). The del­i­cate tip will present dry-flies with great ac­cu­racy and fi­nesse while the pow­er­ful butt will lift and cast heav­ier nymphs and cast larger dry-flies, even into a breeze. All rods are hol­low built and hand planed in Luke’s Cor­nish work­shop us­ing tra­di­tional tools and the finest-qual­ity com­po­nents. Luke will even build twohanded 12 ft split-cane salmon rods for 8 wt to 9 wt lines (£2,250).
