I would suggest a lightish bass rod, 1 to 3 oz should be OK, if you are shore or rock fishing. Which one depends on the budget you re thinking of for the rod but there are several around. There are number of spinning rods as well, I use a Daiwa Wilderness but that is a 6 piece travel rod but does we...
Just fancy some and I am in Hertfordshire, wanted to know if there are any rock outcrops up the Essex/Suffolk/Norfolk coast. I am not aware of any, but equally haven't searched the eastern coast in detail, tried google maps to try identify any, but the scale you have to go down to and the images mea...
I have the Daiwa Wilderness 6 piece travel spinning rod. It can be either 9ft or 11ft. The case it come in is 26 1/2 inchs long but the rod sections are 24 inches so if critical they can be carried in the cloth bag they sit in. I have a couple of bags that are just over 24 inches in their longest di...

Conoflex sell blanks, www.conoflex.co.uk Guides and Blanks are another. http://www.guidesnblanks.com/ Not sure if Century do them or not, haven't seen blanks advertised by Greys, could email and ask. Conoflex are probably the best option if the rod you want is offered as a blank and is in the price....
Depending on the rod, 10 ft is a bit odd in that it could be light as in lure fishing or heavier as in uptide boat. Will assume more like a lure rod. For first time I suggest that you use a spinning type reel. Easier to use, just get a robust one. :-S Buy a few lures, jellies, spinners and plugs. Wo...

Hope I can recall the name, think it is Trevone in N Cornwall. Down a bit from Padstow. As I recall there is a large parking area with a decent sandy bay, but along the path, away from Travone, is a bay that is flat rock at low tide, covered at high tide. Mention it as there are wooden seats along t...
Cannot help with anything in the UK but trolling is a popular way of salmon fishing on the West coast of Canada. :) :) Try a search using inputs like: British Columbia, fishing, salmon, trolling. One site should describe the set up needed. Not sure where you would get some of the bits from in the UK...

Firefly angling sell inexpensive rods, and they have a number of good reports. I know their 13ft bass rod comes with an adjustable reel seat so you can discard that and use coasters. They do a heavier rod, forget it's name, but I don't know if it also has an adjustable reel seat that can be discarde...
Okehampton is probably the single furthest place from the sea in Devon. :D You have Plymouth to the south, down the A386 via Tavistock, or Bideford to the North, again A386. Probably boats out of both places. Not sure of shore fishing points, thought I had a short list of possibilities but cannot lo...
