locally bought tackle does not seem to be up to the job with at least 4 rods recently snapped in two so today we were testing the ‘ free spirit ‘ rods we have brought over from the UK.. they give a nice feel for the fish whilst at the same time being capable to subdue our largest residents…. together with the Shimano big bait runners we find this the ideal combination for our lake….. rod pod and Fox alarms are also provided…
