i like the look of the Shiman Stradic line, it is very similar to the Okuma lines. I like the size and shape of the handle that roundness looks like it would fish very well.

I think you are thinking of baitcaster reels, like this one:




The Zebco 33 is a "spin-cast" reel.

I bought one a month ago and have been fishing with it since and I got it down pretty good. No major birds nesting as of yet. But then again I havent scrambled while sight fishing for a HUGE bass yet. That will be the true test
aahh yeah, yeah my bad. baitcaster is the ones i always screw up. . . but i love fishing. i go everyweek once the weather's warm. but my entire rod/reel/tackle probably adds up to less than $200. i like to fly fish with my good ole shakespere rod and reel, and catch whatever will bite a worm, crank bait, jig, etc on a pond or river.

im cheap, so i just make the best out of a my budget friendly hobby.

Nothing wrong with fishing on a budget, fish are not trendy snobs. And as far as cheap fly fishing, I dont think that can be done. Every flyfishing reel I have ever seen are over $200. But I do know of cheap combo deals.

man ive been fly fishing since i was 10 years old. here's the way i look at fly reels - you don't cast with it. you don't reel it in with any tension on it. why spend a lot of money on one? after every throw you pull out about 2 foot of line by hand, and the snatch it back, and then lay it back down. when you catch a fish, you spool it in with your hand. you dont reel it in. so frankly, i don't care kind of gears, metal alloys, etc are in it. as long as i can crank it back in to start a new casting series, that's all that matters to me. . . and a rod that doesn't break haha.

$50 is more than enough to buy a fly fishing combo for anyone in my opinion.

works fine for starters ^^

just get it, a few different types of flys, maybe a vest and you're good to go.

there's nothing better than wadding out to the middle of a river up to your waste with a few beers in your vest and fly rod in hand. you just stand there and fish, piss on yourself and drink. pretty hard to beat.

I know a good amount of yíall have a fishing rod holder set up already but I have been working pretty hard on this design for a very sturdy and functional rod holder. The thing about this one is that it is designed for a toolbox. It is removable and can be stored away when you arenít using it. I have thought of multiple options, like a single rod holder, multiple rods (up to 4 or 5), something to secure the rods in the holder for your worrying purposes and it can be made at any angle you want.
Here are a few pictures of the design it self, let me know what you guys think!




The holes are where a pvc rod holder would be placed btw

OK! im done with mine. tell me what you think. it holds 3. the reason mine took so long was relocating the bed rails. i bought the actual holder at Academy and then rivited it to the bracket i made to utilize the bed rails. I extended the to space to clear the wheel well. the rod holder comes in a pack of two, i may make one for the other side later.
