Re: Tackle box for air travel

I have taken my reels plus line in my hand luggage a couple of times without issues. However, I have heard of some fishermen who were not allowed to bring the line onboard...

So is mine. It's screaming thank you for having no interest in this reel!
That was my first thought. Knowing myself, I will become interested before next summer when trout season kicks in...

Re: Tackle box for air travel

I usually pack my travel rods, reels, lure boxes, and all accessories in a large hardcase trolley and bring separate backpack/packs for day-trips. I have Meiho Versus Bucket Mouth 9000, which is a very solid tackle box with room for plenty of tackle. https://www.versusmeiho.com.au/products/meiho/sto...

Rule of adjectives

Musings from a quiet night shift (while browsing for fishing pliers and various tackle accessories): Any piece of tackle or tackle accessory with “deluxe” (or similar) as part of the name is most likely utter crap. Any piece of tackle with a difficult to pronounce name or weird abbreviation is more ...

Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

My greatest wish is for me to “be OK” with mixing ABU/Daiwa/Shimano reels and rods - it would make my life easier and my wallet thicker... Same here. I have wished for that same thing many times. Since I swap reels from Shimano to Daiwa and back so often I've had to resort to only buying rods that ...

10 for originality. You have big huevos if you painted your Daiwa to match that ABU rod, and you are willing to show it off on TT. :D Either way, good job!

Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

Nice setup. The rod is a ABU Troutin Marquis. However, the series include a few different rods and also telescopic rods. They were among the first JDM trout rods that I looked at but I have never held one in hand.

Re: Longer high-end rod choices

I have the E6X MBR903C and i love it. its 7'6 and one piece. it is also offered in IMX Pro which is higher end than the E6X. One thing i would not want is a two piece rod. 1 piece is still way better even with modern ferrule design IMO. just food for thought. In Europe, 2-piece and multi-piece rods...

Re: Longer high-end rod choices

Many of the recommendations given here are great rods - but not all are good for throwing 1/2 oz. Especially if you fish inshore, as I do, and you want some distance. IMO, you really want a rod where 1/2 oz is more or less in the middle of the recommended lure weight range. The blank needs to load w...

Re: Longer high-end rod choices

I would be looking at salmon steelhead rods, also eging and seabass rods from Japan. I use the St Croix Avid and Legend Elite “freshwater” rods in 8’6” to 9’6” in various power ratings for fresh and inshore saltwater fishing here in Denmark. Wonderful rods, great components, with a classic build an...

Re: Bfs rod questions

Among other unfortunate purchases, I have two Volkeys (L and ML BfS) that I intended to use for trout fishing :oops: :lol: They are way too fast action for that purpose. Still, I like the rods and have kept them for perch fishing, which I do not do very often.

Re: Bfs rod questions

I've never seen a trout casting rod with BFS labeling on it. BFS is usually reserved for bass gear. Kuying Teton SUL, UL (and L) are trout, or rainbow trout, stream fishing BFS rods. Those really are not intended for perch, walley (zander?) or pike. And because of that I can say that those are not ...

Re: Millionaire CT SV reel

I still think that is such a shame because my Luna 103 + SLP Steez 105 spool is killerrrrr for crankbaits and the like. It took some upgrades besides the spool to get it there and I was hoping the CT would represent something similar out if the box. Of course, I wouldn't want to go below 1/4oz with...
