• Xplorer Classic II 5/6//4/5 vs Stealth Magnum 9054

    Hi, im looking for a new rod. I will be fishing for Trout in streams and Yellowfish in the Cederberg. I am looking at the Xplorer Classic II 9/5 ad 4/5 and the Stealth Magnum 9054. The magnum is R2100 and the xplorer is R1600. Any advice or recommendations will be much appreciated.

      Between the 2 I'd take the stealth, prefer it over the xplorer.

      i knew it, did you notice the gap in between both rods you querried, damn, it would cost you fortune if you'd started with the classic to end up with magnum

    If you look at modern hooks you wonder how did they ever hook and land fish in a time so long ago, Tarzan was still doing burphees in the gym.

    Very dangerous to fish from land. Knobbly flat water dogs all over.

    So I'm heading up to the Okavango delta in December and was just wondering how hard is it to catch a tiger without a boat. Is it possible to find tigers
