#50600 Shad Rebound

Posted by Tom on 15 May 2017 - 09:29 AM in Shad

Nice to see big numbers getting further upstream! I am getting more into the idea (not necessarily the practice -yet) of catching one as far upstream, or even in waters where they are not documented. For example, I am intrigued with the concept of seeing how far up they may get in Darby creek for instance. Would any possibly make it up into Cobbs? Dare I say any beyond that, like Naylors Run? Wish I had time to explore this out a bit.

#50378 What reel would you get for this rod?

Hands down Stradic. I have several of the older white FJ models and they work just as well now as the day I bought them. Clean and lube once per year or as needed and they will last for a lonnggg time.  The only difference between the 2500 and 3000 (for the non carbon fiber ones at least) is spool capacity/line size.
