Carp Fishing Tackle Review: The Daiwa Longbow DF Rod (3.5lb)
Article by Tommy Jones
Chinese mythology says that at the top of a waterfall which pours from a fabled mountain, sits the Dragon’s Gate. The legend says that although many carp make a difficult swim against the river’s current, few can leap over the gate. Those that possess the strength and the wherewithal to achieve their goal, are bestowed with the honour of being amazingly converted into a potent dragon with mythical powers. The dragon’s scales are said to originate from its beginning as a carp. The thought of a carp jumping across the gate is symbolic of daringness, diligence, and success. What other possible explanation could there be for a fisherman tracking this regal fish? To fight this proto-dragon, I need the best carp fishing tackle I can manage to pay for! My preference is Daiwa gear, in that it includes the best possible harmony of cost and functionality as far as I’m concerned. Below are details concerning an excellent carp rod manufactured by Daiwa – the Longbow DF 3.5lb model.
Carp Fishing Tackle: Chief Parts of the Daiwa Longbow DF Rod
The most important feature of this excellent carp rod is its heritage, because it’s been designed in conjunction with Danny Fairbrass, a famous UK carp angler. In addition, he manages Korda Developments, which is a UK business which creates terminal carp fishing tackle. Broadcasted widely on UK television in programmes such as State of the Art Carp Fishing, Danny is a real star in the carp fishing world. His authority is obvious in the chic, but effective design of Daiwa Longbow DF’s extra slim, premium blank. It features a silk matt finish that reduces glare significantly — a small but important detail for those extended carp fishing excursions.
