You couldn't fish most of the rivers around here without at least 9ft Dave. Also a few 'situations' where the water is 10ft below me. πŸ˜‰

Probably the cheapest Ive seen is 15ft long and is used on a peir in Gosport by the regulars.
It is made from a fibreglass tele Roach pole and they told me they just reinforced the joints and ensured the female part of the assembly was very securely glued in.
Ive seen it lift (vertically) a low double and have no doubt it would lift 20lbs of weight easily enough.

A possible option maybe :shrug:
That's currently what I'm doing Mike. I've bodged the receiving thread of one pole into a telescopic pole which gives me about 8 or 9ft of extension, but I've had to refit it once already as my lure fishing spoon net puts too much strain on the joint. It's not bad and has served a purpose but I'm ready to buy a new purpose made pole.

Have you looked at those old fibre glass beach rods found in junk shops? Perhaps they could be coverted into a tele by stripping the rings & wraps off?
Outside the box - what about a sailboard mast, if they arent telescopic they are certainly tapered and are probably convertible.
What about tele outrigger poles? They are seriously strong, tele extendable, can be lifted one-handed, alloy or fibreglass, and long, very :grin:

No I want a purpose made pole Mike, but I will take my hat off to you for an outstanding effort to help!

Exactly what the Pit forum is all about. Respect mate!

I haven't used one of these, but Korum stuff is usually pretty good. If you could see the 3m one in the real word it might be worth a look.

Now I like the look of that! I would have preferred the extra 200mm but I think I could live with it. I know I'm a bit needy Dave :grin: but I cant see what the price is for the 2.8m pole?

The 3-pc telescopic should be more like a landing net pole.

You'll have to find a retailer for Korum prices.

I have a Shakespeare omni 3M telescopic that is donkey's years old (don't laugh). Nice and strong, don't know if the modern ones are as good but they are 15 quid

A brand that was on a par with other decent makers when I was a kid but seemerd to have opted for cheap and cheerful in latter years. I'm not one for buying names so if they are ok I'd have no problem using one. I'll have a Google later. Cheers. :thumbs:

Are you still on 2 wheels Chris?

I’ve got one of these (4 metre) I could part with cheap but even if you just want a looksee in the flesh I’m not far away. Imagine we are fishing some of the same type of swims.

I will be later in the season James. Would it be strong enough to lift big chub from say 10ft below you? (Well you have to aim high! 😁)

I had an 8lbish zed straight up the side of a wall with it the other day, and that’s about 7’ up at that point I reckon. As long as you lift vertically I imagine you’ll be fine. If you’re trying to go over railings or something like that at an angle then it could be a bit hairy in all fairness. Depends on how big the chub is :laughs: :laughs: :laughs:
