    Drennan Specialist 2 Rod Hardcase SOLD

    Hi all, great rod bag offering super protection, all the right external pockets - two to cover landing net/handle, storm poles and banksticks, plus a brolly attachment on the other side. Inside there are feeder/lead pockets and a sleeve for quiver tips. This rod bag has never seen the river...

    Hi Richard, they are just standard build, so I don't actually know!

    2 rod sleeve offering full rod protection?

    Watched a YouTube video review, looked quite big and bulky to me Stuart? I may buy it yet. The Shimano one was only £30 and my mate has it so I know it's not big and bulky, plus it has all the external pockets I need. These hard case ones are all a great idea, but useless if you're using 6000...

    2 rod sleeve offering full rod protection?

    Well the saga continues 😂 Having received my new rods and just set them up with the new 6000D's, I can safely say the Drennan 2 rod hardcase is a bloody snug fit, as in ridiculously snug - I struggled to do the zip up! So it's take 3... I've ordered a Shimano Tribal 2 rod sleeve from Bobco for...

    Korum barbel rods, one end of the scale to the other lol. Couldn't fault the Korums though, great first rods ;)

    Okuma Carbonite CBF 155a reels x 2 SOLD

    Hi guys, not sure if any interest in these lower end reels. I bought them for a couple of cheaper 11 foot rods I've bought, but have decided to put my existing Shimano 6000's on them (I initially thought they would be too big and heavy but they are fine). These are new boxed reels, pre loaded...

    Great stuff! But where is this river that is fishable in the UK at the moment??! 😅

    Back into Barbel fishing - few Tackle Q's

    Chris, build seems nice for the dosh, only thing that jumped out as 'different' is that the handle seemed quite short, however, being 11 foot rods for the purpose of fishing smaller rivers, tighter swims or just having a smaller rod to chuck in the car, that is of no concern to me. Ash has...

    Back into Barbel fishing - few Tackle Q's

    Hi Tim, might be worth checking out the Tackle Box range of specialist rods. They have a range called Darent Valley and they produce a number of specialist rods in 11 foot length and various t/c's. I have bought a pair of the 11" 1.75lb TC to use on the smaller rivers (they do them in 0.75lb TC...
