When you want a prompt, powerful advantage over small river fish such as chub, barbel, and perch, and you need the speed and strength to keep them out of snags and undercuts, you need the Advanta RVS River Ambush. Designed for light river fishing, this 5ft 5” rod is light and responsive, and ideal for smaller or younger anglers, and those just getting into the sport.
Advanta are a dynamic, emerging brand, bringing a wealth of angling experience and design know-how together to create the perfect range of products for all types of anglers, and offering a winning blend of quality and value.
The River Ambush has a delicate fibre glass quiver tip, which allows for smooth, even drop shotting. While it is predominantly designed for close quarter fishing, it could equally handle smaller lake carp.
With a 1.5lb test curve, this is a good starter river rod, and is fitted with a soft and sensitive luminous painted hi-viz tip, ideal for cloudy side streams and eddies, and designed to give a reliable, positive bite indication.
With a durable matte finish on a two-piece 30T carbon blank, this rod combines straightforward design charm with cutting edge design information – the perfect blend of beauty and brains. A high grade cork handle and carbon reel seat add stylish finishing touches to this powerful rod that looks as good as it feels.
If you’re heading out barbel fishing, particularly, a good quality pair of polaroid sunglasses, in the summer months, as well as a good quality rod all year round, is essential – barbel like to feed in clear water over gravel, and, in the summer, polaroid glasses take the glare off the water’s surface, meaning you can spot likely feeding grounds and hiding places.
Chub are a rewarding fish to go after in winter, as it almost never gets cold enough for them to stop feeding, and they don’t mind cheap, simple baits. A feeder rod works well, and plays on the chub’s natural greed to lure it out of hiding and onto your hook.
With its design focus on smooth, even drop shotting ability, the River Ambush is the ideal perch fishing rod, and, at under 6ft, won’t take up too much space: an idea way to win round unenthusiastic other halves!
