I wanted to buy a beach casting fishing rod and reel combo. I had virtually no knowledge of what were the suitable options for me. The lady at McCoy & Thomas Hunting & Fishing NZ was very helpful and knowledgable. She pointed out a couple of options at the medium quality/medium-lower price range which is what I had asked for. She offered advice on the size of rod that a beginner like me would be best off with. Overall very good experience.
