This 9 foot 8 weight combo is the perfect way to start chasing saltwater species and is great for bass, carp and other warm water species where a bit more backbone is required. Lets face it, most of us start out with a lightweight rod and we’re a bit intimidating when it comes to shelling out a chunk of change on a heavier weight combo. Well, this Big Game Outfit is the answer and the Red Truck Fly Fishing Co. provides everything you need at an affordable price to get started.
The 4 pc. medium fast rod has plenty of backbone and tracks extremely well for quick and accurate casts. The cast aluminum Big Game reel with it’s large arbor and variable drag will put the brakes on the fastest running fish. Combine all this with a short aggressive weight forward floating line for throwing large poppers and baitfish patterns and you have a well balanced combo. All of this fits nicely into a cordura covered rod and reel case so you can keep your rig ready to fish when you are.
The 1953 series comes fully rigged and ready to fish, and YES, we even include a leader. When you’re headed out for your first saltwater trip of the year or looking for a great bass outfit, gear up with the 1953 All-Around Big Game Combo.
