Aldi tackle time again 18.4.13

Recommended Posts

Yeah your right Alan, I have a couple of the bags and they are great and pretty well made also. I've never seen their glow sticks but have heard they're good, appart from that all their other fishing tackle that i've seen is pretty much just cheap tat...jmo of course.

I too have had their light sticks and expected them to be poor quality and not work well or at all. Like Tigger I've found them excellent.

To big for floats or swingers though ,i have a box somewhere i took one out and put it back i cant find anything to use them in

Is Aldi just lidl with less of a gutteral accent and less incentive to rule the world? Sigh ...nope just german (chinese) tat germans refuse to buy at a third of the price

They are brothers who had a falling out, so one started up as a competitor

The two best times to go fishing are when it's raining and when it's not

Might have to go get the fly rod to give it a go without forking out £££ and deciding I don't like (can't do) it

I would look for a decent second hand at the same price. If you are fishing streams, as opposed to reservoirs, then even a good glass fibre is worth considering. Aldi & Lidl rods are OK to leave in the car but the ones that I have had have been a bit stiff. The travel rod shown (4 sections) is the style of rod that is often in end of season sales etc. I would prefer a 2 piece. Advantage of car boots etc is that you can actually feel how heavy and how it is balanced. On no account pick up a Hardy second hand rod, it will make you weep.

I've seen many of those bags used as camera bags, in fact I'm currently using one myself. They're so cheap that it's worth buying two or three and filling them up as grab bags, for various types of fishing at a moment's notice.

If they're anything like the job lot JV44 bought off e-bay (of dubious origin) you could send them to Heathrow for when conditions are foggy.


It's never a 'six', let's put it back
