Shakespeare Firebird Combo Rod and Reel Fishing Set:

The Firebird combo contains a rod and a reel that can cast out and reel in all the fish you'll need as a beginner or intermediate fishing enthusiast.

The medium action rod, that's 7ft in length, is perfect for casting across the river and comes in 2 pieces for quick assembly if you're in a rush.

The spool reel is fixed on the rod and is spooled with a 5kg line.

The Firebird Combo Rod and Reel Set from Shakespeare is a great rod for kids, beginners and intermediates alike.

* 7ft rod
* Fixed spool reel
* 2 piece rod construction

rrp is 16.99 this is 9.99 + postage

Its by no means top end gear but its excellent value for occasional use and ideal for kids. Its much better quality that some of the real tat combos around - especially when it includes a fairly decent reel.

HELP Please!... My son aged 8 has asked me as a non-fisherman that he wants to go fishing. I saw this reasonable price rod, Q: would it be suitable for a young lad of 8 to fish on a river. Because he's under the age of 12, I believe he doesn't need a rod licence. Being not informed of Angling laws, would it be okay for me as his Dad to sit with him whilst he has a go at fishing (for safety reasons)? Or would I have to purchase a Rod Licence for myselt to be legally covered? Also are there any other licences or permits we would need to fish? We would be looking at the River Nene and other smaller rivers local Lincolnshire/Cambridgeshire area.

yes it would be suitable for an 8 year old - my son uses one and he is 7.
Cant comment on English fishing regualtions....I'm in N Ireland. someone else can probably help with that one.

Don't bother with a rod & reel at 8. Buy a cheap pole, they are a lot less hassle, you spend more time fishing and less time undoing tangles ! You can buy a 2 to 3 metre on for the same price.

5kg line will need replacing honestly as this would be OK in the sea. Start with 2-3 lb probably but line is cheap.
#7
you are fine with the licence issue
but best check here River neneon where to fish for free as most rivers are members only or day ticket !

5kg is perfect for sea fishing (my use) - I guess for freshwater lighter line may be more appropraite.

Hi,
Under 12's don't need a licence.
If he is fishing and you are just helping him I shouldn't think that you would need one youself.
On an email I received when I bought a Rod Licence it said:
'Now that you have got your licence find out about where to go fishing and byelaws that are in place at http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/rodlicence or call 08708 506 506' so maybe you could contact them to check if this is the case.
Also for more information about licences you could go to:
http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/homeandleisure/recreation/fishing/31497.aspx
If you telephone your local fishing equipment shop they are usually quite helpful.
Some sections of river may be free or some may require a permit or day ticket to fish in addition to your rod licence and they will probably be able to give you more info.
Some information about fishing the River Nene can be found at:

Venue Fact File
River Nene, Oundle, Northants
Controlling Club: Oundle AS.
Contact: Roger Lee, 01832 274010, or Fred Prior, 01832 732110.
Membership details: The river can be fished on a day ticket costing £3, which can be bought on the bank. A club book for the winter is only £7 per year.
Matches: Oundle AS run a series of opens throughout the year. There are also plenty of club matches for Oundle AS members. The water can be booked by clubs at £3 per peg. Draws for matches are often held at the derelict Riverside pub car park.
Restrictions: Strictly no litter. You will be walking across farmland, so close all gates behind you and respect the farmer's interests.
How to get there: Oundle is dead easy to find on the A605 west of Peterborough. For the Cheremy Bridge and Ashton footbridge sections there is some parking on the A605, but this is a very busy road so please call the club for instructions. If fishing close to the stone bridge, you can park at the Riverside pub, which you can't miss as you turn off the A605 roundabout into Oundle. Then you just walk over the bridge and through a gate. For fishing the Cotterstock Wood section, go over the stone bridge and take the right-hand turn at the petrol station. Bear right at the bend and this takes you to the rugby club car park - park here. You will need a trolley.

Found on this page:
Fishing is popular on the Nene, especially on the north bank, and there are good chub grounds near Peterborough. The river is brimming with carp and tench; bream and roach are less likely due to little movement of the water. Up past Northampton chub and dace are a more likely proposition and Ringstead Shallows is the place to fish for carp.

Coarse fishing is available at Yarwell Mill, nr Wansford (01780 782247) and at Ringstead Island near Thrapston (01604 820380).

Anyone aged 12 years or over who fishes for salmon, trout, freshwater fish or eels must have a valid rod licence (obtainable from post offices, or directly from the Environment Agency). This is in addition to a permit, available from Peterborough and District Angling Club, required to fish the non-tidal Nene west of Whittlesey.

The River Nene is controlled by The Peterborough and District Angling Association (tel: 01733 571676) and March Working Men's Club (tel: 01354 653223).
