Brown trout rod and reels

Recommended Posts

I want to get some new rod and reels for browns. I don’t want to use my salmon rods. Want something a little lighter. Any suggestions?

Good call. Tough to find a rod and reel combination that will allow you to boat a 30 lb King and give you any kind of a battle with a 5 lb Brown.

 

I run Diawa Sealine sg 27 lc's on light action ugly sticks for Browns and they are nice. I just bought a ****load of Shimano 500lc's to upgrade the Diawas and I will be putting the Diawas up for sale on this site when I get a chance. Some are like brand new with a couple trips on them and some have been used quite a bit and have boat rash. Price will range from $50.00 a piece for the boat rashed older ones to $70.00 a piece for the like new reels. If you are interested shot me a PM and I can send you some pictures. All reels have been religiously maintained and work perfectly.

 

You over at Mikes?

I got a couple of those left as well but they are the accudepth plus. The accudepths were junk. The accudepth plus were better but they are not as good quality as the sealine sg's. $40.00 for those if you want them.

I agree I'm slowly upgrading myself to sealines an tekotas but the accudepths plus I've used have held up good for browns an Lakers

Fat Nancy's has a nice 9' rod that quite a few guys are running. I believe they have M and ML. We have the ML, and it makes fighting Spring BT a ton of fun! As for a reel the Daiwa Accudepth or Sealine is more than enough in the 27 size. 

 

When you go in there ask for Dave and let him know you want to see the BT rods we're running. He'll know which ones.
