i purchased a fishing rod for my son for 3.99 complete with reel and is telescopic, he insisted in using it for fishing on the boat so i stuck some feathers on it for him, no mackeral so stuck a further 4 feathers on it of a smaller variety, so 8 in total. was all quite for a bit then bang, my 5 year old son had 8 good sized mackeral on a kids toy fishing rod, and as people will know mackeral give a good fight, i got em all in although the reel which is made of plastic was struggeling, and we went to 4 feathers and he had great fun, you would not believe how that rod would bend but it never broke. i finally persuaded him to use a proper rod and reel so was easier to bring em in, 10 to 15 for a fixed spool reel is ample and 15 -25 quid ish on a rod or more for telescopic will be fine, if you are a novice then fixed spool reel is fine but if more of a keener fisher man then use a multiplier, 30 quid will get a reasonable one these days.

as with many things these days they are better and cheaper than 20 years ago so dont worry about not having to spend a lot

have fun
