Daiwa Saltiga G Boat Travel Rods
A gift for the fisherman who has all the rods he needs. At $250 for the convenience, it’s a bargain.
There is no such thing as having too many fishing rods. No matter what you bring with you, you will always wish for one you didn’t. There is however, such a thing as not enough space in the boat for all the gear you think you might need: enter the Daiwa Saltiga line of boat-rods.
Strategically placed V-Flex ferrules bend with the rod for a smooth powerful action and the multi-piece rods store away handily in their semi-hard travel case. The blanks are made from powerful Glatech and the guides are Fuji Hardloy. They come in both spinning and casting configurations.

It would be difficult to find a stronger, more durable, better looking, wooden net; constructed from steam-bent oak with attractive walnut, maple or padauk inlays, the Moby nets last a lifetime and.

Spiderwire Stealth Glo-Vis Braided Line

It glows above the surface of the water making it easier for you to mend your line and detect strikes but disappears below the surface so the fish have a much more difficult time seeing it. It comes in many strengths from six- to 80-pound test and may be just the secret weapon you need.
