The Rod, Crucis AEGIS 7'8" 2 Piece 1-3kg (7823) Spin Rod
Like so many other anglers, we at The Complete Angler have been getting into developing new and highly productive forms of fishing and catching very big fish. Fishing with light jigs and softbaits, hard baits and small lures has also been taking off, but the rods capable of doing this well have been few and far between - until NOW.
This fantastic Crucis AEG7823 rod redefines what is good in an ultralight rod with a killer action. The tip is sensitive and powerful with the agility and sensitivity to cast 1 gram jigs and the butt has the grunt to land a 30lb trout or salmon. This is a magnificent rod for small hard bodied baits capable of casting them big distances in a lake or river and opening up fishing opportunities that have not been available before because previous rods didn't have the right action.
The South Island canals are incredibly productive especially when using light soft baits and this rod is the best for that application I have seen. It has length yet is crisp and light.
