A few of Shu-fly fly rods

 

As some of you know I’ve been working some shows with Shu-Fly out of Nanuet, NY. Skip, the owner, has his own line of fly rods that make sense for kayak anglers. That’s because they’re priced great and perform well. Most models are $99. The exception being the 11’ switch, the two 7 piece travel rods (5 and 8 wt.) and possible a couple others. All Shu-Fly fly rods include a sock, hard case and lifetime warranty. As a show special he offers on a few select models a free reel with backing and line. The 5’6” 3wt. for small waters is especially intriguing to me.

Shu-fly spin and conventional rods

Just arrived from overseas is Skip’s line of spin and conventional rods. They offer tremendous value and there are some interesting rods in this line as well and the prices are terrific. The rod that caught my eye is the 10’6” steelhead/salmon rod rate ¼ to ¾ oz. It’ll make a great reacher. What’s a reacher? It’s a rod when set up with braid will reach blitzing fish like albies in the surf when nobody else can. A rod like this with a ¾ oz. metal lure and 15 or 20 pound braid is going to cast a looooooooooong way. You can see the rods at the upcoming shows; Suffern, Providence or Somerset.
