A baiting pole is one of those bits of tackle that you might think that you can do without. Until you own one. Then you’ll change your mind… quickly. We’d go as far as to say that they can literally transform your ability to get the most out of certain swims. In one fell swoop you can penetrate deep under those overhanging carp sanctuaries, whose branches touch the surface. Without a pole, you can’t, it’s that simple.
The Cygnet Baiting Pole is a particularly smart example, in both senses of the word. Its carefully designed float and tray combine to ensure that you can get your rig out, tangle-free, every time. A partition in the tray allows you to separate rig and lead, to get that perfect drop, and the resulting peace of mind that comes from knowing that you’re presented better than the guy next-door!
The pole comprises 12 strong, overfit sections, all of which stow inside the largest one for transit and will comfortably fit into a rod holdall. Need to fish further than 12-metres? Well, the Cygnet boffins have thought of that. In fact, they’ve come up with an extension section that allows you to go as far as your budget, and common sense, will allow! Because the new 1.5m Baiting Pole Extension has a parallel profile, you can simply keep adding them to go further, and further, and further…
