2 posts in this topic

I used to fly fish freshwater all the time for bass and bluegill. I didnt have anything fancy, just off brand cheap stuff, really dont know much about it. I would like to get back into it, this time in the salt, as thats where I fish 90% of the time.

 

I would like a setup that would be suited for specks, red drum up to 30-35", and schoolie stripers.

 

Any advice on what weight gear to get, and brands, models for both rod and reel, I'd really appreciate it. My limit right now is around 400$. Thanks alot, I really appreciate it.

Heavier one of TFO MiniMag full kit for $299 I think is a good buy. Rod does not win beauty contest but being about 11wt has "bunching power" and at 8ft short feels more like 9wt/9ft. Rod tube has a reel pouch but looks functioinal.
