Default There goes the farm!

It's amazing how fast you can spend money in a fishing shop! I went in for a half hour, and walked out with a pole, reel, line and 110$ hole in my pocket! Last week my dog broke my pretty new pole. Good thing it was cheap. I leave saturday for my week long fishing trip so i decided to go high quality. I got a fenwick Eagle GT pole, 4-10# 7'. And a Flueger President Reel, 10 stainless steel ball bearing, that came with two spools. I had them put 6 on the main and 10 on the other. Supposedly the best line they had, easy cast, a little softer i guess. Now I am set! We tried out every pole in the store, from 20 to 200$ rods, and this was the best one i could find. Then we spent even more time going over the reels. Finally the combination was perfect!!! Now all i have to do is keep my Labrador at a safe distance!!!

Wish me luck!

You'll love the Flueger reel, best reel on the market for the money in my opinion.
