    Default Stalking/Floater Rod setup

    Hi everyone, been a while since i've posted on here and little while since i've actually made it out on the bank.

    Looking to get a dedicated floater/stalker rod (6ft ish) i can use for both as only able to get short days in at the moment, not something thats going to break the bank.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks

    You can get a 6' or 9' Wychwood extricator for under 40 or a 10' Nash dwarf for under 50 then all you only need is a decent small reel for a tidy little setup.

    2 different things imo. For stalking you want a short fairly powerful rod, for floater fishing you want a long, through action rod.

    Having just finished a session using the Dwarf.............beleive me, the Wychwood are a far better option. The Dwarf was hidious. a really horrible blank with cheap fittings........id never use one again. Much better out there !

    You need at least a 11 ft rod to pick the line up around a 2.25 TC then it can be used for barbel if you fancy it a2600 or a small Baitrunner would be good dwarf and scopes are a gimmick for the price you can't go wrong with wychwood
