I'VE GOT X TO SPEND ON A ROD AND REEL
I get a lot of emails and messages asking me for advice on what lure rods and spinning reels to buy to suit various budgets, so here are my suggestions. Please accept as ever that these are merely my opinions, and the rods and reels I really like may well not suit you. All the rods and reels below are available to buy in the UK.
I’m after a 9’ lure rod for no more than £200
I’ve put aside up to £300 for a very special 9’6’’ lure rod
I’ve put aside up to £300 for a very special, more powerful lure rod

I need a really good lure rod for wrasse fishing
The Major Craft Crostage Hard Rock CRX-802MH/S 5-30g. This is one hell of a rod for bumping soft plastic lures along the bottom. Review to come.
Available here in the UK.
