Hi,

I have bought a 8', 3 section, Sigma Spinning Rod, action-medium, power-medium, line wt. 8lb, lure weight 10-25g recently.

Could the more experienced anglers in the forum tell me more about the rod?

I mean, Can I fish rapid waters (for example of Teesta and Rangeet in Sikkim & W. Bengal) with this rod?

To what extremes can I go with this rod? :? :roll:

It all depends on how wide and deep is the rapids and what kind of fish are you targetting..!!
You can do drift fishing, its a float setup.. You can use the rod you purchased for drift fishing..Try to cast up the stream and make sure you have sufficient weight under the float. The leader to be used must be half to one and half times the depth of the rapids. If you are not sure of the depth then just take approx 50cm/60cm of leader and tie it to a swivel or join to the main line directly using blood knot.
Before you do this tying, make sure your float is set up on your main line. The type of float to use depends on the speed of the flow of water. It's hard to use peacock quill in fast flowing waters.You can still use it. For information on what kinds/shapes of floats to be used in rapids, please have a look at the shapes here : http://www.raventackle.com/products_detail_floats.php

Between your float and the bait, there should be some small split shots/lead wrapped on the line. have a look at this diagram and it will give you an idea how to fix lead/split shots between your float and bait. The distance between the bait and the float must be adjustable.

Good luck

Hi
Yes you can use spinners and lures in rapids.I use them in rapids.
Cast up the stream and retrieve them downstream. Make sure you are able to wade into the rapids, should your lure gets struck in the rocks.If the waters too deep or flowing very fast advise is not to wade into the water.
A very good lure for rapids is Kwikfish.Comes in multi colors and is very good lure for rapids,shore fishing (lakes and seas). I would say that this lure is one of the best lures with a great action.

You can also wrap a small piece of sardine or any fish or even rub fish oil on it for more strikes.

The kwikfish can be used two ways in rapids.1) cast upstream and retrieve down stream.
2) use a three way swivel.On one end tie your main line.On the second end add weight (one to 4 ounce depending on speed the water is flowing).On the third end tie your kwikfish on a leader of 12 to 20 inches. Please see this image for idea : http://www.steelheader.net/Salmon/image ... h_demo.jpg

If you are to use option 2, then just cast straight or upstream and let the weight sink. Donot retrieve..Just standstill.
