A bit of a handful. The fish that is.

No external floating devices needed. The fish are pretty good swimmers.

Nice timing. I'm off to visit my parents on the North Norfolk coast on a fortnight and this will do me just right. I've fancied trying a bit of sea fishing for ages.
#28
I took the telescopic beach rod & reel to the Isles of Scilly when on me hols.The gear is of a very good quality .
#29
I'm up for taking up fishing - mostly on greek islands. Have missed out on 4 potential goes, cos I don't know what I'm doing, or what to buy. Hints dropped on these various angles have failed with friends etc, so I throw myself at your mercy.

What's the difference between the beach rod, match rod and competition pole?

Does/could the beach rod collapse down to a size that I could fit into a small-ish suitcase?

Any other tips/info gladly welcomed.

I haven't looked at this equipment but only the beach rod is for sea fishing. The match rod and pole will be for small river or lake fish.

I'd stay away from these rods and reels unless you know the quality of what you're looking at.

You can get a Shakespeare beach rod (to cast 4-7oz) and reel outfit with bag, and 20lb line on the reel for under £30 where I am, they may have recentley gone up to £35 though. Thats if you want to start of with a basic solid outfit.

You get what you pay for though, so if you want a bit of fun, these Aldi deals might be for you

@NickLP - Unless the beach rod is telescopic, then now it wont fit in a case, even then it probably won't fit. They normally come as a 2 piece or 3 piece rod, you'd have to put it throgh check in as an extra, like beach umbrellas and push chairs and things when you go on holiday. As for the other two, I'm not too sure, I only know the basics about sea fishing (even though I work part time in a shop that sells fishing stuff). I think a match rod must be more of a lighter rod, thinner rod compared with the beach one, similar to a spin rod, but I may be mistaken. As for competiton pole, I have no idea.

A beach rod is at says, it's used on a beach and is much stronger than a match rod or a competition pole, you wouldn't use either of these at sea. I don't do much sea fishing myself but the 'beach' rod sounds pretty universal, and you could probably use it off the rocks or off a boat. There is also a 'beach caster' which may be slightly longer and stronger, since it is used to cast out up to 100 yards. They are stronger, as they will use larger weights to cope with the stronger currents that the sea has.

A match rod is primarily used on freshwater for course fishing. It will be lighter and generally used to fish with a fload on lakes, ponds, rivers and canals. You may also hear it referred to as a course rod. It wouldn't cope with sea fishing unless you were catching small stuff.

A competition pole is a different thing all together. It is mainly used by match anglers on fresh water fisheries as above but is not used with a reel, nor does it have 'eyes' to thread your line through. Basically you attach a line to the end of it, and don't cast, just ship it out over the water and place it with accuracy where you want to fish. There is elastic in the end of the pole attached to your line which acts as a shock absorber when you hook anything. They can be in excess of 16m long and if you go down on the canal or a lake on a Sunday you will probably see them in action.

If you are wanting a collapsable rod to go in a suit case I'd suggest visiting your local tackle dealer and asking for a telescopic rod. The ones in argos, etc are generally cheap and nasty. You might have to spend a bit more but it will last you for a lot longer. I'm not sure on the quality of these in Lidl to be honest.

just picked up some fishing gear from aldi, £1.99 a packet and not the £2.99 advertised on their site. had a fair few there but was selling fast, also picked up the 8m pole, fishing bag and rod bag just because they were cheap.
