Here at The Fishing Buddy we aim to help give you the best possible fishing experience. This not only starts with your shopping experience, but the products you buy. We too are fanatical fishermen and know exactly what it's like to buy or receive tackle that doesn't hit the mark !
That is why we only sell products that we are happy to use ourselves, yes that means our product range is less than most, but we only want you to buy what you need and what's right for you.
Our Brand selection is very important to us. Quality and value for money are at the top of our priorities, but also how the brand reacts within the sport.
THE RIGHT FISHING RODS
The most frequent question I have been asked over the years is " Is there a good all rounder " and to be honest the answer is NO.
The way that rods are now being manufactured, becoming thinner and lighter really makes picking the right rod harder. Yes years ago I used to use a standard 2 section 13ft rod for everything, it had a good tip and a bit of backbone. Now I have at least 8 rods I use regularly, for a variety of situations.
We currently stock Trabucco, Cinnetic, Vega, Grauvell and Akios rods. Whilst we are always testing and on the look out for other brands, we feel these are fantastic brands covering all bases. We are dedicated to finding the rod best suited to your style of fishing, area fished and spieces targeted, and we are happy for you to pop down and feel the rods.
For us this is just as important as picking the right rod. It needs to be balance with the rod and able to handle the desired conditions. Whilst most of the rods we sell are suited for fixed spool, we can supply a fully range of Akios Multipliers.
The sharp end so to speak, not only do we supply a full range of ready tied rigs and can produce them to any specification, as previously stated we only supply products that we are happy to use ourselves and that means terminal tackle to. We have a full range of hooks, swivels, clips, lines, flourocarbons and weights.
Trabucco, Gemini, Turkana, Kamasan, Teklon, Sakuma and Power Swivels.
All of our rigs are tied using these products and are used by amateur anglers and match winning anglers alike.
