Author Topic: Best reel for fishing steelhead in the Veddar

Have moved back to the area and have fond memories of fishing with my Uncle George Frisky in the 60's and 70's on the Veddar. I am sure it is a bit different today but going to give it a shot. All my gear is saltwater stuff so need advice on an entry level or intermediate setup.

look around for a decent levelwind setup, most come with a abu garcia 6500 and a 10'6" casting rod, combos are usually around 200 wich is very reasonable.

If used is an option it opens the door to a lot more options. Usually you can work on te price a little bit as well.

If not Zap is right about entry level of intermediate.

is it reasonable to offer $200 for the calcutta combo?

$300 is a very good price for that combo! you would be looking at over $500 to purchase that set up new. If it was mine I wouldn't sell for any lower.

If you are looking for a cheaper combo, let me know, I have a bait casting rod and reel that I could sell, perfect for river fishing.
