New Daiwa Saltiga 3500 & 4000 Released

Posted by Editor On April - 15 - 2011

New Daiwa Saltiga 4000As far as light tackle fishing news goes, this is right up there... Daiwa have released the new Saltiga spinning reels in smaller sizes, including a baby 3500. Happy days!

Review of Tronix Pro Twin Spreader Booms

Posted by Editor On April - 4 - 2011

Tronix Spreader BoomsLesson learned yesterday. Stick with what you know.
