I am thinking about picking up the Salmon Distance.
Can you guys name some rods that are used for this?

Cheers,
Bart

Overhead as in ICSF Event 6 ?
GLoomis, Talon, Zziplex are just a few.

Thanks Dung Fly.
I was actually talking about the "fishing tackle" WC salmon distance.
It is overhead 55grams

I’m looking for one too Bart. It will need to be good to compensate for my lack of skills. I cast further in the trout accuracy than I did in the salmon distance.

Thanks Lee.
To be honest I find the lack of pieces a bit unhandy, although it might be better for the action of the rod.

Cheers, Bart

Gertrude, Felix, bigone etc :p

Joking aside: LTS across, Tellis' grand river tournament, Tellis Mavros (a bit on the soft side) and most other 15 footers work quite ok.
