I have a full set of 10 rods and fixed spool reels to hire at no extra cost although they must be paid for if lost overboard.
The reels are Penn 750 spinfishers which are a fantastic reel and retail at £120, they are regularly serviced and the line is renewed twice a year.
The rods are Shakespeare 18-25lb fsb rods specifically designed for use on a boat and with a fixed spool reel. They are an excellent rod for all year round fishing and can handle the biggest of fish, they are a perfect match for the reels and retail at £80.
The tackle can be seen in action on any of the From The Water’s Edge videos on my website.
I also have a set of Ugly Stik 12lb class rods for mackerel fishing, these are teamed up with multiplier reels and are an excellent combination.
All rigs and terminal tackle are free to use but there is a charge of £3 for the loss of the end tackle.
Please note that a lot of skippers charge extra for hire tackle and it is quite often inferior quality.
