Wild waters and rivers are making a comeback. Fishing conventionally for skimmers or trotting on a river for chub and dace is all on the up. This range of Team Daiwa rods serves the purpose beautifully.
The float range offers typical 13’ and 14’ models for waggler and slider or even top and bottom float control. But for proper river work the 15’/17’ model is a joy to handle.
Feeder wise the butt diameters are that bit higher than commercial rods, ensuring that plenty of loading power is on offer for punching feeders into open waters, cutting the cross wind and picking up line at distance. The 11’6” is the ideal skimmer rod whereas the 12’6” will cover most big water and river work.
However for deeper rivers and distance float control two ‘bolo’ rods at 6m and 7m have been developed. Both feature sliding intermediate guides for enhanced line travel.
