Eighteen foot four piece hollow cane roach pole

Post by Troydog »

Whilst in France this week a friend gave me the rod described. He only fishes for carp, zander and sturgeon so he has never used his grandfather’s rod.
How do I set it up so I don’t break it please?
Trouble is, the fish just don't read the books......

With light elastic!!

I have seen videos of the French street fishing for cats with c****n poles - very exciting! Esp when they are 60lb +!!

Take it to Woody Tim. When he stops laughing he'll sort you out. I assume it has an eye at the tip so it'll be pretty straight forward :Hat:

If it has an eye at the end, you could tie a length of no 6 elastic to it and attach a stonfo connector to it and then attach your float rig to that...

Tim, I'll teach you how to use a thames roach pole, I just tie 18" of power gum to mine to take out shock, I have used mine well for roach and perch, especially perch with the flat float is great fun.
I took it in to woody, and he loved it👍

Thank you gentlemen! That’s great Paul, I’ve never used a pole before and the tip section is so incredibly thin….still in France looking to fill the car with wine this morning !!
