Gaz Fareham discusses the benefits of travelling lighlty while carp fishing. He explains the importance of having quality luggage, such as Shimano Tribal Xtreme rod holdalls, and how you can stay light when travelling around swims.
What a month it has been for the carp anglers of the U.K. and abroad. As is normally the case at this time of year the fish have really started to feed well and some massive fish have been caught.
The British record has been rattled by no less than three different 50lbs plus carp which incredibly came out over the same weekend. Forties are throwing themselves onto the banks at most of the big fish venues around the U.K., and some even bigger fish have been caught from faraway lands. So here is my take on Shimano rods and reels.
As continental carping gets more popular, and anglers are casting greater distances in the U.K., there has been a demand for bigger and better reels. The two big players in the reel game are of course Daiwa and Shimano. Both companies offer some stunning equipment but for a long time anglers have been requesting a baitrunner version of the larger reels. These have now been developed by Shimano and this has prompted a price war between the two giants. Daiwa haven’t actually got a baitrunner reel out, but they have now cut the price of their main big pit reels and are also offering a free baitrunner conversion. As a result a lot of shops have lowered the price for their Shimano reels to compete with Daiwa. So there has never been as good an occasion as now to get yourself some new reels. Now, whilst I have not got hold of any of the Shimano reels myself, I have had a good look and play with them and they are something special. The main problem is that they seem to be so popular that rocking horse droppings are easier to get hold of. Upon initial investigation they are quite bulky but they have to be, to accommodate the massive gearing and baitrunner system that is housed in the rear body of the reel. They are however as smooth as silk to reel in, and the baitrunner facility itself is faultless and similar to the smaller Shimano Baitrunners, being located at the rear of the reel. Blue in colour, they look the part and at an average price of £115.99 per reel they won’t damage the bank account too much if you want to upgrade.
