English translation:Crappie Fishing Pole
Explanation:
or crappie fishing rod, of course.

"crappies" are smaller fish species:

"Crappie fishing rods - The lengths of crappie fishing rods vary according to individual preference, but one thing about crappie fishing rods that needs to remain constant is that they must be light. Crappie fishing usually involves "jigging", or snapping the rod up and down continually to lure the fish toward the bait, and if your fishing rod isn't light, it's going to tire your arm and wrist out rather quickly. Crappies are fairly small fish, so a light fishing rod and light line are fine to use. Due to the type of fishing it is, comfort should be the main concern when it comes to a crappie fishing rod."

I just wanted to add that it seems this term can be used in both English and Norwegian, i.e. "pirkestang" (in Norwegian) or "pirk rod" (in English). Perhaps will be more helpful to you:

Kanskje ikke den mest pålitelige kilden, men her selges det en "pirkestang"...
