Savage gear travel rod

Post  LewisJ on Thu Feb 23, 2012 7:07 pm

Just wondering if anyone has any expierence with Savage gear rods?

This summer Im hoping to utilise my motorbike to get around to different waters and as deadbaiting is not only (in my experience) slow and sometimes very lame in summer, it also requires a large rod and a fair bit of kit. So this summer I want to get a small ish rod that I strap to the back of the bike and go explore!!!

The rod im looking at is the Savage Gear 5pc Roadrunner rod (Link below)

Any Ideas of different rods or experience with this one?

Cheers
Lewis

PS before anyone says 'use a car' I only have my bike !! haha

Ive got a Telescopic rod that folds up nice and small that i purcahsed in France when me and the wife lived there for a while. Nice to cast and play fish on. Couldnt tell you the make though, but for what you want to do ( on the m/bike ), ideal i reckon.

It arrived today, for what I needed I decided it was the right rod.

And oh my what a beautiful piece of kit, I mess not, it weighs less than a tube of tooth paste, really well made. Top quality, just waiting for the rivers to reopen and ill be riding the 20 miles to river wye on the bike for days walking along the river trying to get my first river pike Haha

Now for a suitable landing net, would chin the pike but the stretches I intend on fishing (ross, hereford) require anglers to carry nets ...

That's for an different thread
