Many anglers spend much of our fishing lives casting baits and lures in estuaries and at the beach. Wilson has covered this very broad application with a series of Estuary and light surf fishing rods that offer excellent performance at an accessible price. In fact, they are ideal for those not wanting to sacrifice on quality but still need to keep a careful eye on the dollar.
The several rods detailed below offer a power house of options for land based river fishing or light beach fishing with lures or flesh bait and whether fishing with braid or traditional monofilament line, you are covered. They’re ideal for fishing rivers, harbours and the beach.
The biggest feature is in the high tech composite blank. It is constructed of Semi-unidirectional fibreglass Aerospace-grade carbon fibre which provides the right blend of power, sensitivity and durability while keeping things very light for fishing light. All hardware is excellent quality, well beyond that which the affordable price tag suggests.
You will be hunting a wide variety of fish with your Wilson Live Fibre. They’re great for Bream, Flathead, Whiting, Dart, Tailor and all your favourites, with the RLF 41/2 allowing you to hunt Aussie Salmon and the like as well. The model RLF41/2 is also ideal for rock dwellers like the powerful Drummer otherwise known as the rock blackfish.
The Live Fibre Estuary Rods are well constructed rods of reliable performance. You will love the feel of each rod, and you will also love the money you save getting it here, at fishingtackleshop.com.au.
