1. Looking to get back into fly fishing. It's been a while. I have everything except for rod/reel and line. Any suggestions would help. I can't spend much on ...more it but I want something that has enough backbone for bass up to about three pounds and light enough to flip small flys to sunfish and trout.

      Okay. Thanks Noah!

      I would suggest a 5wt 8.5-9.5ft fly rod their is a good deal that you get all of that if you buy a Redington path kit also good price look it up

      I used to use an old hand me down automatic fly reel and a super old rod that caught hundreds of sunfish. It served me well but I want an actual fly reel and a rod ...more that isn't cracking.

      Good luck on your search I think you will like the 6/7 wt. You don't have to break the bank to have fun and catch fish. I have the sage and oryis rods but I ...more still have and use my first fly rod it was 35 dollars from wal mart it has landed some big steelhead and gets the job done.

      Okay, one that I was looking at was a 5/6wt so that would be a little light for the bigger bugs. I'll look for a 6 or 6/7wt.

      there are companies with inexpensive combos under 100 dollars, I'm not sure what your budget is, but I would say a 6 wt will get you started however it may ...more still be to light to throw those big poppers. plueger medalist is one example.

      Did you hear a "croaking" sound coming out of it's mouth? Hence the name.
    6. Gannon Walles 0
      Ok thanks guys. I didn't know croaker could get that big. I've caught smaller ones there but that one was about 2lbs.

      It is an Atlantic Croaker. A member of the drum family but they are much smaller.
    8. William Begley Jr. 0
      looks like a croaker of nice size
    9. Gannon Walles 0
      I don't think it's a red drum. It doesn't have the characteristic spot/spots on the tail.

    5. Gannon Walles 0
      Thanks. What brand would you suggest for a small unit?
    6. Anthony Verastigui 0
      My Dad gave me his boat 1.5yr ago. It had this same unit on it. I suggest you go an buy a new one. For $100 you can buy a new 3" or 4" unit(w/transducer) ...more that shows way more detail than this outdated one did.
