    Default beginners spinning rod & reel

    Hi all,
    I have started lure fishing but it has became apparent that the rod I am using is not right for it. Any suggestions for a beginners spinning rod and reel under £100?

    I bought a Daiwa 7 foot sweepfire rod and reel set with braid for about £39.99 on eBay
    That’s what I started with, still use it some days too.

    There are so many good rods to choose from, this is just one that fits the bill imo.

    Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Spin 9ft - PS38.99

    Choice of reel is a bit more straightforward, go for a Daiwa Ninja reel, brilliant value, most probably 2500 size

    Daiwa Ninja Front Drag - 2500A

    I reccomend using braid rather than a mono line, more expensive initially but much longer lasting so better in the long run, a 25lb breaking strain would be ok for starters.

    If you start catching pike you’ll need a wire trace and some appropriate tools, do some googling or find someone with experience.

    Good luck and enjoy.

    Have a look at the Korum Snapper range of rods and reels! Good value and nice to use! The Ninja is a lovely reel for the money and I aim to put mine to good use this year.
