MORE ABOUT ROD BIRD #TEAMSONIK
Having spent most of his life in mainland Europe, Rod has been blessed with a choice of waters from many countries including France, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Italy, fishing rivers and lakes. Rod love a challenge and really enjoys his time on the Dutch canals. Fishing in France has always been special to him and he’s covered many types of waters throughout the country, including fishing in the World Carp Classic and the World Carp Masters. Rod has enjoyed fishing on some outstanding waters such as the magical Lac du Der and the impressive Orient and Madine, smaller waters like Jurassica 2, the Abbey Lakes Complex….
And especially the stunning Etang du Manoir in Brittany also has a draw for Rod.
Rod’s focus over the years has never changed, if he’s there he’s going to do everything he can to up his percentage of catching. It’s not about catching the largest carp, certainly now that he lives in the North East of England were the choice of venues and the size of carp available are less than what he’s used too. So, now Rod intends to travel the country to find good venues, which also includes Scotland were Rod is originally from. Rod’s favourite rig is the Zig closely followed by the Ronnie rig.
