A warm welcome to the forums mate. To make your money spread out I would go for shakespeare or fladden gear. Although not the top of the range it will do the job for what it is designed for and it looked after will last.
Cheers
keith :D :D

3 How useful in protecting old bones is one of these neat tent plus rod rest devices ? .........

on the cobble beaches of Minehead and Porlock, the harbour and wall marks of Minehead, Blue Anchor or Watchet.....or the mudflats further up channel.......

....no good at all.

A good floatation suit will give you protection from the elements.

A carp or bass rod will do if it can handle a 3 or 4 oz grip lead, that will do in many locations.

The fish haven't changed since you last tried to catch them.... and they certainly won't know if you are using secondhand or new tackle.


details of marks local to you might help....click on www button below,
