Pictures to follow soon.

Barder Rod Co custom built 11′ 4-piece carbon fibre travel rod.

Suitable for a wide variety of applications, this rod is ideal for the travelling angler- 94 cm (37") long in its case.


This is rod follows on from the one we sold in March 2024.

You could happily use this rod for bait fishing for salmon, pike fishing, carp, bass, barbel, large chub and presumably, tiger fish, turbot and oh I don’t know, shad?

The blank on which this rod is built was made in the UK from the very best high modulus carbon fibre. It was hand ground and has our proprietary satin finish which adds no bulk to the carbon.

The handle, turned from the very best Flor grade Portuguese cork, has a blued nickel silver butt cap and rubber button for durability, a matching shoulder collar at the top and a salt water resistant down locking reel fitting with a figured olive wood spacer.

The rings are Fuji Sic throughout, whipped with chestnut silk. There is a hook keeper above the handle and the rod’s particulars are inscribed in white Indian ink.

The joints have hand turned olive wood and cork stopper and the rod comes in a tailor made bag and a Barder Rod Co aluminium travel tube.

It’s very light, has a tremendously sensitive yet powerful progressive through action and of course, it looks exceedingly classy.

A good rod to put in the boot when you next travel on the Continent in the Bentley.
