Spinning Away

I now have a spinning set up for use in the sea when the wind is too great to get a decent fly line out. I managed to get:

Shakespeare Salt Spin Rod with Penn Captiva CV2 5000
Quoting from http://www.wsftackle.com/ :
Constructed from high-carbon and featuring Fuji rings and reel seat, this 10ft, 3-piece equal section, lightweight blank is rated to cast 1 to 3ozs and proves ideal for spinning for bass, pollack, garfish and mackerel when fishing from breakwaters, rock ledges, jetties, piers and beaches. Also ideal when plug fishing for bass over rough ground.

This modern fast tapered blank is built with a responsive tip, but with increasing power in the upper mid sections flowing in to a stiff butt to give a powerful but supple action providing maximum sport with accurate long range casting ability, plus the power to punch light plugs in to a head wind.

Since its launch the SALT Spin rod has accounted for barracuda to nearly 40lbs overseas.

Penn Captiva 5000
– 11 Ball Bearings
– 200yds 12lb Mono Capacity
– Ratio: 5:2:1

I am looking forward to giving this a crack along the Kentish beaches when the northerly winds are on the gust. I will also try this back in Sussex again when I get there.

Happy Spinning…
