River boat rod?


Recommended Posts

I am looking for recommendations for a good river boat rod. It will mainly be used for chub and roach and bream this winter. I have been using my Avon 1 3/4 TC which is a bit OTT for what I want.

 

Anyone recommend a good coarse boat rod?

Dave i recently bought a DAM 10' float rod for use from the yak, think its a Carp wager one but tbh it seems to work for all styles of float fishing and although a tad heavy for little stuff has worked as a back up live bait snatching rod

Shorter is better for boat work so maybe the Darrent Valley 1.25 avon or even there 0.75 light version or the do a 8' twin top ,seen one in the flesh awesome for the money

I have a feeder rod from this range and it's lovely.

Haven't tried the float rod but that's a half decent price.

I have what I reckon is the mutt's nutts for float fishing from a boat, a Preston Carbonactive Mini 11' pellet rod. It's happy with gudgeon on a size 22 or with large bream on a size 6 and everything in between. I never cease to be amazed at just how good a boat rod it is.

I would think any 11 ft pellet waggler rod would work well from a boat.

11 ft is not to short to feel you can't control your float and not to long allowing a bit more control of a decent fish. Pellet waggler rods also have a shorter handle allowing the rod to be moved across your body.

I have a Preston carbonactive method rod and it's good but would recommend a Shakespeare Mach 3 pellet waggler - I own one and it's a very very nice rod, my other five waggler rods are all MAP branded but even their parabolic model didn't impress me like the Mach 3 did:
