    Default spinning rod

    I've never had a go at spinning, but watched Mr crab tree & I really want to have bash. I don't want spend loads, about 30 I reckon on a good second hand one. I have 9ft 2 3/4lb stalking rod, I'm guessing this will be too heavy ?

    Justin you can buy a brand new rod for around 30 sheets!
    Have a look on the Harris sportsmail website, they do loads of gear for lure fishing and also do cheap lure fishing rod and reel combos from the likes of Abu!

    A 9ft stalking rod with a TC of 2.75 lb will be fine for medium weight lure fishing for lures up to about 50gms in weight. I used a John Wilson stalking rod of the same specification for a few years until I broke it.

    If you want to fish for smaller species such as trout, chub, perch, you need a smaller, lighter rod. Drennan do some good spinning rods, here's a link:

    Try what you've got first. Spend your money on lures rather than a rod and then if you take to spinning you will have some idea of what type of rod you prefer.

    Lure World - Fishing Tackle Shipped Worldwide for lighter lure fishing which is a lot more fun than hurling dirty great lures about on the wrong rod. By using the heavy rod you have and lures to match you will miss out on perch chub even bream which all take lures but with a lighter outfit you still will catch pike, in fact they are a bit of a nuisance on 2 " shads!

    Lure-World is based in St.Albans and run by Artur Brzozowski.An excellent website with a great choice and very good service.AGM can also be highly recommended along with The Pike Shop.

    Deecy, sorry if I sounded a bit blunt, no offence meant I do buy Foreign mate, but being me
    I just don't trust foreign websites! I have used agm in fact I have just had a few Storm Lures from them, wicked prices! I don't know what the HRT lures are like, I have never heard of them and I tend to keep away from brands I don't know. Concerning the Salmo lures, well, I bought a few models from Harris and I just think they look cheap and have never used them as I don't trust the hooks and fittings on them, maybe you could assure me that they are ok?

    My favourite lures by the way are the ones by Savage gear which are Foreign
