Match Gear (UK)
- Buy the best I could afford
My main aim is to get back into Match Fishing. The fishing scene has changed a lot, many commercial fisheries have dominated the more natural waters that I was used to fishing.
After a large investment in the pole, to protect it on the bank I decided to purchase a V Roller and 2 x Flat Rollers, which should help with any bankside situations
The Tricast Trilogy came with a deluxe pole holdall, which after a couple of months showed signs of wear. Tricast kindly replaced it free of charge. However I decided to review my luggage choice and selected the following:
- Guru Fusion Pole Holdall
- Guru Fusion Rod Holdall
- Mosella Compact Carryall - enough room for all the bait and other terminal tackle in the Drennan Visa-Case's
With the advent of commercial fisheries and their varying keepnet limit rules one or two keepnets is not the norm. So I opted for the Cresta Rectangle and Guru Landing Nets
Landing nets I got a couple of the Guru ones and for venues that hold larger carp I purchased a MAP 24" Carp Landing Net head.
It's worthwhile setting up both landing nets just in case of a larger fish, so the landing net poles I opted for the Tri-cast XRS Easy Reach (12'), although in hindsight I should have bought two 12' handles... this landing net pole has lasted me for coming up 10 years!
