Advice Strictly For The Beginner

Recommended Posts

I've been using a Cabelas Traditional II rod and reel combo since I got into fishing. I'm sure a more expensive setup would feel much nicer but I catch fish with what I have.

As a poor out-of-college student I was able to afford the Cabelas package that comes with rod, reel, line, rod case, and many accessories including a how-to DVD, in a 4wt for panfish.

 

If I was giving my young self advice on what to purchase, I'd recommend that same product. I'd say "think about going for a 6 or 7wt, but that 4wt really is perfect for panfish and smaller LMB."

 

I'd also say "watch out for doorways, they are hazardous to rod tips on long rods".
