Re: My Daiko Burroughs BRSC-64L rod has arrived

Vidar, Many thanks for the advice. :D Now it's getting close to make my mind up time. :? Mostly I'll be throwing small spinners and crank baits with the occasional soft plastic thrown in for good measure. The river that I'm fishing gives up trout, perch and chub in equal numbers. Maybe I should bite...

Re: My Daiko Burroughs BRSC-64L rod has arrived

Vidar, I'm glad you like the Daiko and hope you put it to good use. You managed to whet my appetite for a JDM rod with your much appreciated input on the Pike & Pred's site.

Re: Need suggestions for spinning reel

I've just invested in a Daiwa TD-R 2508. Not the cheapest at £175 G.B.P, but the best that I've used. Not sure what the equivalent model would be on your side of the pond.
