A New Rod

Have just taken delivery of a new (old) fishing rod, the first fibreglass rod I've owned since childhood...Not sure if it'll be any good for the Grayling trotting I bought it for but I think it was a bargain for a Hardy Rod(Conquest 13ft) and seems quite useable so I  will give it a go.


  1. That looks a corker to me. I would be proud to own a Hardy 'glass float rod. My current rod for trotting is a fibreglass Shakespeare Alpha match circa 1978 and is still a joy to use.

  2. I thought you might appreciate this one mate, I will of course let you know how it fishes.

  3. For the record, I believe this rod to be from the late 60's
