    Default Favourite salmon rod

    How about members posting their favourite salmon rod model either as top choice or in preference 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
    Here is mine:
    1. Bruce and Walker Powerlite 15'. (awesome casting power on big rivers)
    2. Bruce and Walker Kola Spey Caster 15'-3". (great for early spring fishing)
    3. Shakey Switch in all line weights ( great rod for low water conditions)

    12' 6" Hardy Zenith. Great for low water and smaller rivers.

    1) Daiwa C98 13ft- because I caught my first salmon on the fly on it. (might break it out for old times sake if I manage a fish later this year)

    2) My Dads Daiwa Whisker Kevlar 10ft 6-8wt that he gave me. Not because it is a great rod but its the one I have caught the most fish on.

    3) My loop Cross S1 9ft 6wt. Its a cracker I have beasted in some reasonable sized fish on it and I always feel lucky using it.

    Strangely all the nice rods that I have built for myself have yet to take a salmon. Something I will be trying to rectify in September in Lewis.

    My old daiwa whisker 13ft, its batterd and bruised but would cast any line you chose to put on it within reason and is really forgiving. Itl not get you great distances but itl put a straight line out without much effort at all. My dad still uses his and i still like a cast with it every now and again.

    Great Scottish made rods. I have the 11'-3" for loch salmon and it puts out a great line.
