Commercial King² Carp Tickler

A revolutionary new rod design that takes "short" commercial rods to the next level. The Tickler rods effectively a one piece 7' rod which is "folded" for carrying by just pulling out the quivertip, placing the hook in a special keeper tube and winding the line tight. Everything is held in place without the need for any rod bands or sleeves. The rods can be set up and "ready to fish" in less than 10 seconds - and put away just as quickly - without the irritating tangles and damaged quivertips always suffered with transporting a made-up conventional 2 piece rod. As the main rod is in one piece and has no joints the action is absolutely perfect. The 7' length further improves casting accuracy compared to even 8's rods, and brings even big fish to you feet and ready to net very quickly. Even if you are already a "short rod convert", just try one of these and you will never go back to your difficult to assemble "long" 8 or 9' rod. Two versions to suit Carp/F1, or summer/winter, fishing.

Spring is a particularly interesting time of year on Italy’s longest river. The period when the water temperatures are slowly climbing towards 10 degrees is renowned for monster catfish activity.At this time, Stefan Seuß likes to use small sub floats (10-gram Black Cat underwater float), which he mounts directly behind the baitfish on the leader.
