The pros’ favourite tackle to net one of these.

TF Gear Centre pin, smooth, fast and the ideal trotting reel for my grayling fishing.”
Nathan Walter

“DL Carp rods, produced with the intent of making one of the best, mid range carp rods on the market. I’ve helped make it too, so it has proper use and testing. Great rod.”
Dane Lane

“A decent mud anchor – this is essential when I’m targeting specimen pike on the UK’s large reservoirs. Keeping the boat stable in high winds means a better presentation, and ultimately more pike!”
