What is a pike rod?

What is a predator lure rod?

These rods typically have a fast or extra-fast action, allowing for longer and more accurate casts with artificial lures. They also possess the strength to handle the aggressive takes from predators.

What is a pike deadbaiting rod?

A pike deadbaiting rod is a rod designed specifically for the technique of deadbaiting, where dead fish (like mackerel, smelt or roach) are used as bait to target pike. These rods are generally strong, sensitive and handle the power of a hooked pike.

What is a fixed spool reel?

A fixed spool reel, commonly known as a spinning reel is a type of fishing reel where the spool remains stationary. The line is retrieved by wrapping around the stationary spool as the handle is turned. It is commonly used for lighter line applications and is popular among beginner and intermediate anglers due to its ease of use.

What is a baitcaster reel?

A baitcaster reel, also known as a multiplier reel in the UK, is a type of fishing reel where the spool rotates as the line is retrieved. They are often used for heavier line applications and require a bit more skill to use effectively due to the potential for line tangling, commonly known as a "bird's nest". Baitcaster reels are popular among experienced anglers targeting larger fish, and they offer greater accuracy and control when casting.
