Kelley's Hero keeps stock of the Dave Barham rods on board. In 2018 we became the first sponsors of Dave Barham Fishing. We are very proud to be working with Dave Barham Fishing, and we love to show off what these rods can do.
If you would like to try before you buy, let us know on any fishing trip and we can let you trial run any of the 3 models we have on board.
This is the description from Dave Barham's website:
The DB1 covers all bases. It’s perfect for working lures over wrecks and reefs for cod or pollack, and is equally at home when drifting for turbot and bass, thanks to the first 20-inches of ‘soft’ tip section. Dave also managed to catch two double-figure bass using the DB1 prototype while floatfishing with it.
The rod comes into its own when uptiding. It can cast 10oz with bait no problem, and the soft tip sits really well in the tide. The tip has been painted white specifically for this application – it’s the perfect winter cod rod!
When it comes to downtiding, Dave has caught tope to nearly 50lb, conger eels to 60lb+ and blonde rays to 28lb while field-testing the DB1. There’s so much reserve power lower down the blank that you can be confident of landing pretty much anything you hook, while still enjoying the sport from smaller specimens.
It comes supplied with a heavy-duty, two-section rod bag.
