    Default General Rod for 9 year old

    Looking for recommendations for a general float rod for my boy,i don't want him going straight to carp fishing,want him to do what a lot of us did small coarse fish,but it will also have to be man enough for small carp as they are everywhere now,thanks in advance

    My first suggestion would be a Korum CS float rod. 11" length, nice quality rod's if you prefer coarse fishing. Have a CS feeder 9" feeder rod. This rod amazed me in price / quality compared to my previous owned tri-cast legend 1500.

    But maybe more robust / strength in guides or blank would be some Wychwood Classic avon 11" 1,25lb rod. Light running rigs, float fishing, stalking. Quite all-round.

    these are great for the money take up to 6lb line, I use them for light specimen work where a smaller rod is preferable. have had several flukey carp on them up to 22lb. the length is spot on for a youngster and 2 piece

    Got the 10ft version of this for small stream work, and it perfect - sensitive enough to enjoy silvers, but enough in it to subdue a carp in reasonable time. Cheap as chips too!

    Had one of these John Wilson quivers when I was a kid or an older version. Its a brilliant rod, comes with a normal avon tip (float fishing) and 3 different quiver tips depending what you are going after. One of my mates recently got one for his boy and loves it as well. I used to use it a lot for surface fishing and had carp just short of 30lb on it, as well as being able to enjoy catching small silvers etc.

    Excellent bit of kit and something i think everyone should own!

    Avon rod all day long - it's probably the most generic course fishing rod of them all.

    Two sections little sleeve and can be left set up in a mutidtue of ways.

    The perfect little tool to lean the art of angling.

    Have fun boys
    Maybe its because i'm a londoner
