New Gary Howard Aussie Natives Rods

Gary Howard’s new Aussie Natives Rods are fully customised rods hand-built right here in Australia, for specific local fishing styles. This exquisite range reflects Gary’s skilled craftsmanship at its best, with specialist rods for bream, snapper, Murray cod, and demanding disciplines such as surf casting, estuary luring and flats fishing. Gary’s even added a versatile travel rod, for the ultimate in all-round multi-piece performance.

Each rod blank has been hand-selected by Gary for specific attributes required to deliver anglers with the ultimate tools of trade, offering a level of specific performance you’d expect from a custom built rod, only pre-made and ready-to-go at your local Gary Howard Rods stockist.

Highlights from the range include the impeccable Bream Spin, a 6’6” 4-8lb rod sure to impress bream tournament anglers. The intermediate-modulus graphite blank provides excellent lure presentation, casting distance and sensitivity, yet with heaps of power to drag one out of the racks. It’s well-suited to either light braid lines or straight fluorocarbon, and the shaped reel seat and lightweight high-quality componentry make it a delight to fish all day long, without fatigue.

Snapper on soft plastics moves to a new level with the specialist Soft Tail Snapper 7’0” 10-17lb rod. The premium-quality multi-modulus graphite blank offers the ultimate combination of casting performance, sensitivity and fighting power in the butt.

Murray cod fanatics will love the Goodoo 6’2” 10-17lb baitcast rod, designed after extensive consultation with several of the country’s leading Murray cod specialists. The advanced multi-modulus graphite blank offers a unique combination of a soft tip and powerful butt section. It’ll be your go-to rod for casting deep divers and spinnerbaits and excels when trolling, too.

The 7’0” 8-14lb Flats spin rod, the Tidal Terror 7’0” 2-8lb, the SW 905 7’6” 12-25lb and three 9’0” Surf Cast Pros—6-12lb, 10-17lb and 15-25lb—round out what is an exceptional range of premium casting rods built to the highest possible standard by one of this country’s finest rod builders. You’ll struggle to find better casting rods than this range of tailored high-performance products. The Aussie Natives series is rod building at its best.
