Yes that was the one . Was on FB market place for £110 but someone else was a bit quicker, so I missed it. Perhaps just as well ?I suspect that the rod Truly has seen is an Acolyte Carp Waggler ( They do not do a conventional higher test curve rod in the Acolyte range.......yet ! ) in which case it's a very light rod. For what he wants to use it for I would probably be looking at an Avon type rod which will give a little more backbone should old whiskers turn up.
On the middle Nene between Wansford and Aldwincle there are lots of different swims, locks, weirs, wide/deep, backwaters and mills streams, so plenty to go at.
Looking forward to having a go once the river is back to normal levels. I have got my old Daiwa Jaguar 10 foot ledger rod for starters but keeping my eye open for something a bit more suitable.
