Getting Into Fishing Doesn't Have To Break The Bank
New to fishing? Tying to get into saltwater fishing but do not know where to start? These are two very common questions we get. So here is what we recommend to beginners and novice anglers that do not want to break the bank to fish the local marshes and estuaries.
Entry-level spin rod setup
We prefer a 2500 or 3000 paired with 10lb braid and 20lb leader. 6’6 or 7’ Medium or medium light
Diawa BG Combo
Shimana Speros Combo
Penn Battle III Combo
An entry-level fly fishing setup
Fly Rod Setup
Look for a 9-foot, 7 or 8 weight rod, Echo and Redington all make great rods for around 200$
Orvis Encounter and Clearwater
Echo Ion XL
Temple Fork Outdoors Black Label Kit
Redington Wrangler Kit
Fly Reel: Match the reel to the rod weight. Ensure it has a smooth and enclosed drag system. .
Fly Lines: As listed above your fly line should match your rod size so 7wt = 7wt line. Cortland, Orvis, and Airflo all make really good saltwater lines.
Getting into saltwater fishing can be very affordable, stick with the trusted brands if you can and I always recommend anything with a warranty. If you have any questions about getting started, feel free to reach out to us!
