rod-fox barbel floodwater
reel- any 5000 or over baitrunner
bait- same as carp but they like halibut pellet
hook-size to suit bait hair rig 10

if you fancy a day when rivers open jeff i will have a go and bring spare rods for you but catch more than me and i will take my ball home (that is rods lol)

Very Happy

hey guys,

i use 2 fox floodwater barbel 2.75 rods and 2 shimano 8000 bait runner reels, does perfectly for me!!! i fish on a fast flowing river so a 2.75 rod really does the job.
