Here’s what I’m bringing to the Bahamas… for my “family” vacation.
I’m bringing three fly rods.
- Redington Predator 10 wt. (mine)
- TFO Clouser 8 wt. (mine)
- Rise Level 8 wt. (mine)
I’m bringing one spinning rod (first time for that).
- Albright EXP 6-12 lb (mine)
I’m bringing three fly reels.
- Abel Super 7/8n (loaner)
- Lamson Velocity 3.5 (mine)
- Lamson Lightspeed 4 (mine)
I’m bringing one spinning reel (thanks Charlie).
- Penn Sargus (mine, again, thanks Charlie)
The gear is almost all mine and almost all on the budget side of things, with the major exception of the Abel Super 7/8n. I’m going to fish the TFO and Abel as my go-to set-up here with the 10 for the cuda and the spinning rig for my daughter and wife.
I think the lines on the fly reels are all RIO. Pretty sure the Lamson’s both have RIO Clouser Tropical lines, which have been kind of my standard lines in the salt, but which, as far as I can see, isn’t in the RIO lineup anymore, although maybe it has just been re-branded. The Abel has the new RIO Quickshooter, which I’m interested to try out.
