Plus 3 Salmon Fly Rod 14'-3".
Optimised as a travel rod – the tube measures 34 inches (86 cms) long and 3 1/4 inch (8 cms) round it easily fits into a standard suitcase - this is a 6 section salmon rod weighing 9.5oz (270 grams) with a # 9/10 (38 grams) line rating. Light and easy to use, this rod's middle to tip action allows for both shooting head and short head spey lines. If you are considering using a Skagit line with this rod, then we suggest one with a maximum of 575 grains weight. By using a Skagit line of this weight, you will not overload the rod. Should you use one higher, and don't use it properly, you will.,

“The Sharpe’s Plus 3 just felt right. It’s very comfortable in the hand with a light feel to it. We agreed it would suit all casting styles and abilities. It has quite a fast action with good tip recovery, but offers plenty of feedback through the blank when casting. It cast all lines with minimum effort and didn’t require much thought, leaving you free to concentrate on fishing. This is a good all-rounder that you could learn with and not outgrow as you develop greater proficiency. A worthy winner!”
Verdict: All-round performance and excellent value.
