Classic & vintage predator rods

Classic & vintage predator rods

Predatory fishing was already done in Europe when the first splitcane rods were made. Therefore you can see that there are old splitcane rods of different lengths and materials for different species of fish. This has developed further in the glass rods, graphite rods and finally the carbon rods nowadays.

If you are looking for a predatory rod to actively participate in fishing, the choice for the right rod is not easy. Despite the fact that various predatory rods were already available, fishing for predatory fish used to be very different.
First of all, in the past there were often no throwing weights mentioned on the rods, so often the exact throwing weight is not known. You will have to check the length, the type of rod and the finishes to see if the rod is suitable for your fishery. 
Secondly, to make it extra tricky, the action of each Caucasian is different. Most rods used to be very parabolic compared to today. Think of the splitcane and glass rods. So if you are looking for a slightly tight / stiff predatory rod it is best to look between the graphite and carbon rods. In addition, fishing used to be done mainly with a windmill and you will only find rods for fishing with a reel at the rods of the past 30 years. 

Unlike carp rods or sea rods, many brands have developed predatory rods for decades. Nevertheless, there are a few rods that have become very famous over the years. For example, the Pezon & Michel splitcane rods are known for perch fishing or other light predatory fishing. Also the graphite and glass rods Pateke Morton and Hardy have developed beautiful rods. Within the Netherlands you can see the famous names like Fair Play, CJW and Casting Corner. Next came the carbon rods where Shimano made some popular models for zander fishing like the Shimano powerloop, Shimano twinpower and Shimano diaflash.
If you are looking for more cheap vintage predatory rods then Shakespeare and DAM also offer some nice rods.
