Hi mate,I use a Kilwell Ultima “Gut rod” paired with a shimano calcutta B, which is spooled with 20lb Yo-zuri hybrid for fishing up river on the Rakaia and at the Waimak mouth.I use this rod when the river has plenty of colour in and it’s a damn fine combo..however,when the river becomes low and clear I pull out a little Cabelas TXS paired with a shimano citica 2000 D,this is spooled with 10lb Yo-zuri and I use it to fish small spinners in clear water..those who know me can attest to it’s effectiveness when the conditions become tough..lots of fun playing fish on this outfit :D
