I think I will upgrade Carbon drag...

Yeah, but for that $17 extra, you will likely get a $20 lure with the order. I always did when...

Re: G.Loomis/Shimano Swimbait Rod/Reel/Line Advice Please

For an affordable nice option I went with the Powell Endurance Casting Rod 7'6" Mag Medium Heavy, is rated to 3oz and have thrown 2.5oz baits on it. I have a Shimano Cardiff 301 spooled with 20lb SunLine Assassin on it. The whole big swimbait game in new to me and didn’t want to spend to much on my ...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Chatterbait got me this one today on a very hot and humid day. I was throwing it on my old Conquest 101DC mounted to a Daiwa Tatula Elite Rod.

Re: China/aliexpress gear?

Has anyone tried the fly fishing rods from China? I know there are some decent casting rods for a good price like the kuying rods so I wonder if those rods can be good budget rods or whether they are just garbage. I have ordered 2 from MaxCatch but haven't received them yet. I ordered a 9' 6wt and ...
