I am not sure if this is available in the uk. I have seena few here and think that they would be a great addition to the pack.. Course you lot may think differently.
Its a fishing rod, a telescopic fishing rod to be precise which when folded down is not longet than about 8 inches. It extends to a little over 5 ft when extended and comes with a real too.
Just thought this may be a handy little addition. I was recently in the mountains in the east of norway and had this with me along with 2 hooks, and a couple of spinners.
I found a little lake near where we were staying and in the course of a couple of hours managed to catch 12 mountain trout of about 200 grams each. I also took some line off, and left a standing line over night .... 2 hooks, 2 fish breakfast!!
costs about 35 quid for the set. Will try and gets some pics.
hope this is of some use. :chill:
