Cresta is part of SPRO Fishing and focuses on coarse fishing and match fishing. The success of SPRO in this branch of fishing made the company decide to develop their own brand especially for this discipline. Cresta has its own team of product developers and testers who could focus on developing products for whitefish fishing. The team consists of very professional anglers who know exactly where the focus should be.
In 2016, numerous fixed rods and feeder rods were introduced to the market. Due to the great success of these, the range has expanded considerably. The total range of feeder rods is very large, with different lengths and casting characteristics. Within one type of rod, there are predominantly several options, varying between very different lengths and power options (light, medium and heavy). This is also necessary as the demand for feeder rods is high. Since 2017, special reels have also been released by the brand Cresta, specifically aimed at feeder fishing. The characteristics of these reels are as you would expect from SPRO. With these feeder reels, you can also cast very accurately at longer distances.
A form of fishing that is becoming increasingly popular in Europe is fishing with the method feeder. Special feed baskets have been developed for the method feeder. These differ from regular feeders. The mounting of the method feeder resembles modern carp fishing where the fish hooks itself by the weight of the basket. However, fishing with the method feeder requires special equipment. For fast and easy securing of the hook, there are pre-tied leaders with hair, elastic or bayonet. Bream, tench, roach, and carp are the target fish for the method feeder. For these fish, you can feed a lot. Depending on the fish species, the hook size and the bait size are chosen. The range of feeds, pellets, boilies and liquids from Cresta is very wide and made to the highest quality standards.
