Bob Church Pike Specials

Post by Shiv »

I always remember these rods back when I was a boy in my local tackle shop, Anglers World in Corby, always dreamed of owning a pair, never could of afforded them, paper round payed crap money, :laughs: they fell off my radar back then when I started work, buying North Western PK3,s and Sportex rods,what sort of price would they be going for today wondering if anyone new anybody who had a pair that might want to part with them, probably never use them, just for nostalgia. Cheers Shiv. :thumbs:

Here's one that went in 2014 for £25 Shivvy.

Little bit more than the 25p we used to pay for a quarter pint of maggots back in the day mate. :laughs: :laughs: :laughs:

Hope you're well!
Life is just one long Jubilee!

I bought a pair of Bob Church 11' Carp Special S.U. that were built on the same fast taper Sportex blanks as his Pike Specials with a 2.5lb tc, still got them somewhere, made excellent pike rods for ranges up to around 50yds with a legered half mackeral or herring.
