Pallatrax managing director Simon Pomeroy: ‘To be in a position to add such a great prize from the Lone Angler collection shows our serious and long-term commitment to this great competition.’

Designed by Trefor, the prize 12 ft rod has a 27.75 in. standard handle. It is made on highly regarded Harrison carbon-fibre blanks using only the best materials and fittings to create the ultimate rod in its class.

The rod is beautifully finished in dark green matt with Seymo rings of the correct size on the top section to avoid weed/algae clogging (a high water problem) and superb cork handles incorporating Fuji screw-winch fittings.

Trefor West said: ‘After several years of testing and re-testing I truly believe this to be the ultimate in river rod design with a true progressive action and lightning fast pick-up from this totally English-made blank.’
