My brother was looking to get a collapsible carbon fiber cane pole like a friend of his has.
The brand is Silstar, and it collapses into three sections. We looked online but it appears that model is no longer being made.
The Silstar didn't collapse as small as many of the other cane poles on the market, but it was strong enough to catch salmon with. We tried searching on Google, and mostly we found 5+ section ultra-compact cane poles. My brother is concerned these wouldn't be strong enough for salmon fishing.
Does anyone have recommendations on an equivalent cane pole? It doesn't have to collapse down to be tiny, just small enough that it can be lashed to his rucksack. He mostly fishes for trout while out hiking, but he needs it to be strong enough for silvers and reds as well.
Just to be clear this is the kind of pole that doesn't use a reel, the line attaches near the tip of the pole.
