Tackle used

Steve Roberts is generally known for fishing with vintage tackle. Often seen with an old split cane rod and a centrepin reel, this does not reflect his entire outlook. There are times when modern up to date equipment has its place in his, and his client’s, fishing. For instance, although you could fish with him using beautiful classic, even antique, salmon rods, modern lightweight carbon fibre rods and high tech lines on reels to match are often the tools required to get the best out of salmon fishing, for example.

 

Outlined below are rod and reel combinations available for use, the emphasis being on matching rods and reels that were “made for each other”. This particular consideration is an abiding passion with Steve, and clients can enjoy the fruits of much searching that has put such delightful tackle at their disposal.
