Tell Me About It

A match rod and reel combo that’s ideal for those new to the discipline, and easy for junior anglers to get to grips with, the Daiwa D 11ft Match Rod & 4000 Reel Combo is a strong, reliable piece of match tackle that should be top of every novice’s angling wish list.

With the durability and performance anglers of all disciplines have come to expect from Daiwa being provided by quality, high performance blanks, this match rod combo will get you fishing fast and smooth in no time, even if you’ve never been near a lake before.

The 4000 Reel comes pre-loaded with high quality, durable line that will cast out and retrieve quickly and smoothly time after time, allowing you to build up your skills and confidence with the knowledge that your tackle is never going to get in the way of a potential match placing.

Match fishing wins are built on speed, and spinning reels are designed to provide that, making things a little bit easier for anglers who are still developing their style, and need forgiving tackle that can accommodate the basic errors we all make when we’re trying something new. The Daiwa D Match Reel is one such tackle piece, and makes for an affordable, performance-enhancing addition to any angler’s first match kit when purchased as part of this stylish, high-performance match fishing combo from Daiwa.

What Discipline Is It For?

A quality, high-performance, durable rod and reel combo that will give any angler the best possible start in match fishing, the Daiwa D set is the perfect addition to your match angling arsenal.

Why Should I Buy It?

If you’re looking to get into match angling, it’s always best to start with good quality match tackle that is easy to handle, and which gives a naturally smooth, responsive action, criteria that the Daiwa D Rod and Reel Combo more than delivers on.

Getting your children, grandchildren, nephews, and nieces, as well as those of non-angling friends, into the sport with a present of quality tackle that’s ready to fish straight out of the box, and combines ease of handling with performance that makes bites all but guaranteed, is the gift that keeps on giving. Angling teaches children and young people about the world around them, as they learn what weather and water conditions impact on their fishing, how different fish species behave, and what a lively, healthy fish – and a healthy river – should look like. It gives children an engaging focus, one which puts the energy kids are full of to a targeted, purposeful use, and develops them into adults who are calm, happy with their own company, yet also inherently social, and who don’t struggle with tasks that demand a high level of concentration

Designed to give novice anglers reliable performance in a durable kit, the Daiwa D 11ft Match Rod and 4000 Reel Combo is an affordable gift for anyone – including yourself! More experienced match anglers will find that this makes an excellent practice set up to help you develop your match skills.

What’s The Best Thing About It?

A quality, match-specific rod and reel combo that’s easy to use, whilst offering superb performance at an affordable price is always a pleasure to come across, and the Daiwa D Rod and Reel Combo series will make anglers of all ages and levels of experience happy.

Trouble is that if you post a deal for say a Daiwa - Connoisseur 13' Float Rod at 100£ someone will say they can get a Chinesium one from Go Outdoors for 20£ so all and sundry will vote it cold without knowing a thing about Angling.
Not bad, cod do better.

Rod is OK but the Reel is a bit on the 'heavy side'. It comes pre loaded but they don't say what with. I suspect it will be 8lb .35 'Barbed wire ringing'.

Regardless 'tis a great price and heat added

I’ve tried to post a few this morning from Glasgow angling but because they have “insufficient feedback” (?) they were not allowed. Unbelievable.

A great deal on a 8ft 6 greys #5 fly rod as well.

Slightly strange combo this. Decent enough price for someone just looking to get a cheap starter setup I suppose, but I probably wouldn't pair these.
Any details on how many pieces the rod is?

loads of stuff on youtube will give you a idea. also most anglers are approachable as long as they not in a match. ask advice or just watch them for awhile. basic angling is not rocket science, regardless of what some will tell you, just get out there and enjoy yourself (highfive)managed to sneak a fish name in there on the fly

First of all... start buying ‘sea angler’ magazine. That will give you lots of info on rigs, tactics etc... secondly start looking at the popular websites for your gear... Glasgow angling centre... anglingdirect... fishtec... for your deals on tackle. Finally, you can’t beat local knowledge... so talk to the anglers you see and get their tips and info. Most fishermen are more than happy to help a beginner.

I’ve never been there fishing but basically you will have a choice of coarse or game fisheries... coarse fisheries you will mainly be targeting carp and game fisheries you will be targeting trout... for the novice I would suggest the game fisheries as trout on the whole are easier to catch... a basic float and worm job will be sufficient. That should get you into the swing of catching... I’m no carp fisherman, but I’m sure there will be people on here who could advise on that if that’s what you want to pursue... on the the licence front you will need a rod license wherever you fish (www.gov.uk) in freshwater... and then the cost of the permit/day ticket of the fishery...

I say this to everyone that wants to get into fishing but it is so true - local knowledge is key. Go and talk to anglers that you see and ask questions. You will learn more from a five minute chat with a local angler than you will from hours trawling the internet. Hope that helps.

Planet sea fishing is a good resource for learning to tie rigs (most specific to sea fishing but many multi-purpose) Realistically you only need to learn to tie a few basic knots predominantly one to tie shock leader to the main line (as you need around 20lb line from the weight to the reel to safely cast a 2oz weight due to the forces involved) and learn another knot to tie on swivels or hooks. Just keep in mind that you don't need to spend a fortune and the bait used and angler skill is what will catch the fish.
If you want to keep the budget down, Shakespeare make some great value spin rods which can cover multiple disciplines including lure fishing, float fishing and light (fair weather) legering. From experience, cheap reels will always fail, Shimano make the best (IMO).

Thanks for this. Would a rod and reel like this post be an ideal for game fishing as a beginner or would you recommend something else? Also any recommendation for hooks / worms that would be suitable?

Best thing for kids is a pole if they are young. A lot less tangles to fix!

Best advice for someone new to the sport would be to pop into there local fishing tackle store or get in touch with a local fishing club. Whereabouts in Berkshire do you live? It's where I grew up fishing so can suggest places to try and local clubs to get in touch with.

Note that I'm a noob to coarse fishing but the rod is predominantly determined by the method you intend to fish such as float fishing, using a lure/spinning, or legering (fishing a rig with the weight on the bottom). After this there is typically a weight range for how much the rod can optimally cast and often a description of the rod action (some rods bending most near the end (tippy) and other rods having more 'through' actions where they bend throughout their length).
This Daiwa rod is intended primarily for float fishing and is unlikely to cope well casting much weight. If you are on a strict budget and want to target large predators such as pike this rod is unlikely to be able to cast large dead baits but it should catch trout or salmon on a float fished worm but you would probably want to spend more on the rod as a Salmon and trout fishing licence is going to cost >£80.
Talk to your local fishing shop and they will keep you right. Don't get into the mindset that you need a big heavy rod though, I've landed more fish on a £10 Shakespeare Firebird rod than I have on my expensive rods.
