carp fishing tackle


If you want to have fishing rods without damage and scratch, it is necessary to buy sleeves for fishing rods. It has already happened to many anglers that when he cast, the blank of the fishing rod broke off somewhere (most often from the middle towards the tip of the fishing rod). Although the cast was of adequate power for the fishing rod, it is often the result of the fishing rod being damaged during transport or even at home. On a blank fishing rod, these injuries are often not visible and therefore many anglers wonder why the rod breaks. Therefore, it is especially important that we have fishing rods protected.

In the sleeve for fishing rods can also be carried a landing net, bank stiks, fishing umbrella and more, depending of course on the model and manufacturer of the fishing rod sleeve.

Which fishing rod sleeve to choose in a fishing shop is sometimes quite a problem, as there are many brands and models to choose from. I myself decided to buy somewhere in the middle range of sleevs.

The most important thing for me in choosing was that the fishing rod sleeve has:

  • dark green color
  • external pockets
  • strong zipper
  • space for two fishing rods with a big pit reels
  • big enough for 50mm rod guides
  • price

My choice: Chub Vantage 2 rod system sleeve

Brand new fishing rod sleeve straight from the store :).


Descriptions in different languages.

15% off over $69 on all Piscifun fishing gear

Separate space for fishing rods and reels.

Two inside fairly large velcro pockets in which we can store fishing tackle material, some bait boilies, pop up boilies and so on.

Handy large outer pocket in which we can store various fishing equipment (landing net,, weighing sling, bank sticks, feeding shovel and so on).

Strong zipper and bag carrying holder.

The technology I use for photography, video recording, and photography software:

External small and handy pocket, which is basically designed for the storage of fishing lead. Flexible for a few hours of fishing, stalking or for those anglers who carry a minimum of fishing gear.

Shoulder bag carrying straps.

On the back of the sleeve there is a large space where you can store landing net handle, a fishing umbrella, weight sling, …

The bottom of the sleeve is strong and reinforced.

In practice

I stored a lot more equipment in the sleeve than I expected. I have in my fishing rod sleeve: two fishing rods with big pit reels, bank sticks, bite alarms, swingers, landing net, landing net holder, feeding shovel and weight sling. I am really more than happy with the bag and it was the right decision to buy.

Has only one small drawback and that is that there are no internal straps to provide complete stability for the fishing rods (possibly due to the universal size of the sleeve).

Till next time …

Tight lines and wet nets!

You probably know that terrible feeling in your fingers (especially in winter) when trying to crush 15 or more boilies for pva bags or mesh, spod mix, groundbait mix and more.

There are quite a variety of fishing tackle available for crushing boilies and other baits (nuts, cooked partickle, …). After comparing between different crushers, i decided to buy Korda Krusha (size Small). On the advice of other anglers I chose the size Small. My opinion is that larger size does crush more boilies but it is much easier to crush more times with smaller ones than to bother with bigger ones. Of course the decision is yours. Since my local fishing shop ran out of Korda Krusha size small (so the size of the small is really quite popular against the larger), I decided to wait for the purchase until they got the product back in stock. When I received an email that the product was back in stock I immediately decided to buy it.

It looks very monstrous.

The package came in the mail and when I opened the package I was surprised by how imaginatively they designed the box.

At the back of the box are some instructions and tips on how to use the product.

Teeth look very sharp.

So let’s start crushing. The more we twist, the finer the particles are.

Boilie 20mm before / after.

Very soft boilie before / after.

Wholegrain flakes before / after.

Peanuts before / after.

Cashew nuts beforre / after.

In the photos below, the ingredient Korda Krusha has broken very little or actually nothing. I was expecting that as well, as these were ingredients that are very hard. I wanted to try and crush as many ingredients as possible so that I could see for myself in practice. I still have a few ingredients to try out for the crush, which I will show in the next blogs when I go fishing (hopefully as soon as possible). But you can try the crush yourself (if of course you have any crunch gadget – the brand doesn’t matter), which I haven’t yet and write in the comment section below how it crush.

Cat food, csl pellets, millet.
Raisins, bird food mix, dry feeder pellets.

Pros and cons, my reviews on Korda Krusha (size Small):

Till next time …

 tight lines and wet landing nets!
