The Reviewer says –
It was back in the early 1990’s that I first heard of a John Wilson Avon Quiver and when I saw one, I thought they were the best idea since sliced bread! I got one and after I’d used it I recommended it to anyone I met who commented on it. I also said that for most anglers, all they ever required was 2 rods, a decent float/match rod and a John Wilson Avon Quiver and that would cover 90% of their angling needs.
It was true then and it is still true today. These rods will handle anything from a 6ozs dace to 15lbs carp in still or flowing water. I have such confidence in them, I recommended them to a close friend of mine who was starting up and he not only bought one for himself, but one for his grandson also. In fact, he uses it most of the time he goes fishing now as at 11ft, it’s shorter than his float rod and he can get it under the trees.
These rods are just so versatile and comfortable to use, you can even use them with a pellet waggler. My early one was just the 11ft with no extensions, but this new one has the extension to 13ft provided. That will be of benefit to anyone wanting long casting of feeders and bombs or greater control of an Avon style stick float in a river. The handle is removed and the dolly butt inserted before the normal butt section, quite neatly too.
The rod is still finished in its familiar green and it is a fully ground (sanded if you prefer) blank to produce a completely smooth surface along all of its length and equipped with good rings that will be OK to use with braid if you wish. The reel seat is a comfortable screw down type that will take a reasonable sized reel and the handle is of suitable length too, making it easily transferable from one hand to the other.
It is still, without doubt, the ubiquitous rod it always was doing almost everything an angler requires of it. Anyone starting up fishing or moving to specialist angling could do no better than to get one of these rods. At the RRP of £79.99, reduced from last year's price, it would be a bargain, but with Angling Direct's amazing offer it becomes something you just cannot afford to miss.
