Hi all.

We want to know which rods would work best to fish for barbel, carp, muddies and kurper. I've heard about the Gullymaster rods, the Fun Tackle LTB rods etc.

Where would I get rods like these, or is there better rods to use. The reels would be Shimano's but I can only get them once we have the rods.

Thanks Hotstuff.
Will the Shimano's and ugly stick be able to pull out a barbel of 20kg+ and still be versitile enough to handle a carp,muddie or Kurper?
