Traditional estuary and light-surf anglers will appreciate the slow actions of these custom designed rods. Each rod has been designed with specific attributes suited to popular species such as bream, blackfish, flathead and whiting. Gary’s passion for estuary and light-surf fishing is evident in the quality actions and finishes. All rods in the range are fitted with Fuji guides with binds sealed with a high-gloss two-pack epoxy.


MM – Mid Mount – match with a spin reel

LM – Low Mount – match with an Alvey reel

W (eg 3W) – Indicates the wrap of the rod; how many wraps/layers of fibreglass the rod has.



The estuary series is one of the most popular in the Gary Howard series. As the name suggests, these rods are designed for light estuary fishing. With rod ratings from 2-4kg (on most models) they are a perfect light rod. They are available in a range of lengths, mount positions and wraps in both 1 and 2 piece designs. You’re sure to find your perfect Estuary rod in this collection.
