Hi - Have a look on E-bay. It won't be the best rod in the world but more than suffice for holiday use. A telescopic spinning rod will go for between £5 and £20 and will catch very sizeable fish! (My record was a 24 lb tuna on a light telescopic rod!)
thanks , ended up buying a shimano beastmaster stc spin 10/11 ft from veals , looks a nice rod can't wait to give it a try. will a abu 5000 (red) be ok or should i get a small fixed spool reel . what size reel ?
