    Moonlit Fibreglass Rods

    Overhead casting with a DT is an absolute dream. Distance is not an issue. Roll casting is a bit more of a challenge- very easy to overpower the rod - needs a bit more adaptation, a more relaxed and exaggerated translation phase to load the rod more slowly. Very easy to "puddle" a roll cast if...

    The rod has arrived and I'll be out on the grass as soon as the line has arrived - I could try an old one I have still on a Hardy Sovereign 2000 which used to sit on the Colonel before he retired to his favourite chair in the club bar! I'll let you all know what I think.

    Close to each of us are Broad Lakes (South of Worcester) and Lenches Lakes (North of Evesham). I've fished each of them since the river season closed and both are open through the winter, although Lenches lakes has more restricted opening days as one of the two lakes is also used for Open Water...

    Joking apart - do you ever fish still water ? We could meet up and compare the two on water or grass - not that I'd actually try for a 4lb rainbow with a relative toothpick!

    Thanks for the suggestion - I have a couple of reels one of which will have a 3wt on it and the other a 2 wt so I can try both.

    Moonlit rod on order - tho' I can't take guests on the rivers for which it's ordered but you're welcome to try it on one of the others we might visit together. Should be here mid Jan.

    Thanks for the ideas - but I don't think I'll have a go at self build. I do have some split cane rods one of which needs a rebuild job on the spare tip and which will be quite good as a 9ft 3wt. Too long for the river for which I'm thinking of the glass rods, although it's interesting to see the...

    I should add I do have a Vision 6ft 6" 3wt but the one think I don't like about it is the cork friction reel seat.

    I have, thanks - it's the one review I've seen. I am looking to replace an old split cane which is why I am looking at glass - but most of the UK rods are out of my price bracket.

    I am currently researching rods in the 6ft - 7ft 2 wt category - I found a video on these on line but few reviews. Does anyone have any experience of them. Made in the US. Thanks in anticiptation

    spring creek fly rods

    I was interested to re-visit this thread after 13 or so years because for the first time in all that time I had a need to get a real "cannon" out to deal with the aftermath of Storm Barra at Lenches lakes - the easiest rod to take was the SC 10ft #7/8 (it's a 3 piece so can be shipped in the car...
