Got one for my youngster to try a bit of light pier fishing next summer... not bad for a tenner. Will buy some weights and a cheap set of feathers.

What's the catch?
If anyone can find a better deal let minnow 🏻
Use JDO-DOFE-PAR to get it for £9
I haven't been fishing in years, but I'm going to pick one of these up just for the halibut.

Surely I must win a prize for thread generating the most puns!
Somethings fishy about this deal

Not if you have an account already....

Equally if you find £5 outside the store it will only cost you £5 of your own money.
These have been £9.99 for ages. Got my boy one last Christmas as a stocking filler. Great rod and reel for the money but the line needs replacing straight away.
If your going to fling a line of feathers out on this for goodness sake use a shock leader...

Being a fishing noob here, but what is wrong with the stock line?

I'm a complete noob too but the line has been on the reel way too long and is so poor it kinks . This means it doesn't wind round the spool properly and doesn't run through the rod eyes when you cast.

It's when the benefit of your local tackle shop comes in and they can give you decent gear.

Ah that makes sense, thanks for the insight
Awesome! Caught my first carp on a Firebird setup... it was only about 4lb but didn't it go

Great fun on light gear, now I'm a bit more serious with my fishing. Have to try and dig my telescopic setup out, I still have it somewhere. Pretty sure my reel had rear drag on it though.

Heat OP, it's good to see fishing deals on here.

Just purchased a rod to accompany my daughter... haven’t got a clue what I’m really doing. All part of the fun I guess
Bless my Sole! Stop being such a cheap skate and just buy it! I don't know how many more times you people will carp on about this offer!
Been at £10 for ages and ages .... it's just £9 if you have a Camping and Caravanning Club card.
Cod & Eel for 9lbs that's a minnow price carp wait better skate down and fish one out.
I bought it as was so cheap and was surprised with how decent the rod felt... Have caught Roach and perch with it on a small river float fishing but ditch the supplied line straight away as it just tangles( bird nests)buy some decent line like Daiwa hyper sensor also from go outdoors for £4.99 or similar.
The Reel isnt of the same quality as the rod but is still ok for a beginner.
Another discount code in case the dofe one didn't work...
SPECIAL10OFF
Thanks Op, ordered, looks ideal for a beginner.
This deal is roaching hot

Many thanks
Good series on BBC just finished probably on iplayer. Mortimer and Whitehouse gone fishing. Worth a watch.

Try fishing in the paddling pool, you'll normally hook a few tiddlers at the weekend
If this is being used off a pier to catch mackerel I would strongly advise to cut the feathers down to a maximum of 2/3. The line just isn’t strong enough to haul any sort of weight on it.
Any bundle offers with some cans and a KFC?
Nice. A reely good deal. Does it come with Chrome-cast

Excellent series, but not an awful lot of fishing on it! Loads of Youtube videos on getting started with fishing.
