    Re: Kokane rods gift

    My 2 cents...I own Lamiglas and Velocities....sizes 7' to 8'. My all time fav (and i troll only , no jig rods) is the Lamiglas CGR802L Team Kokanee Jared Johnson Rod 8' CGR802L. You can see the slightest bite, but has the backbone you want also. I think its still under $100.

    I have been a fan of the Okuma line of reels at least the line counter level winds for quite a while now. I use a pair of Okuma Convector CV15 for 10yrs now and the low profile Cold Water 354D reels on my koke rods which I added last year. No complaints

    Re: Kokane rods gift

    For me it is do you like spin or level wind reels.

    Both setups work and both have their good and bad points.

    I have the yellow E/C spin rod but also have a light level line rod, that both get action.

    I have some rod's made by Duncan. He is a guide at Lake Almanor and the rods are made with a 2-8 lb blank and the guides are spiral wrapped.

    They are a little over hundred a piece but they are custom made and you can choose the color or colors of threads you want the guides to be wrapped with.

    Paired with the Okuma Cold Water Series reel and it's a nice rod. Good action and good flex for down riggers.

    Take a look at Rocky Mountain Tackle, they have their Velocity line. I have a pair of the 7' glass rods which I use for kokanee & trout. I've caught up to 15lb lake trout with no issues. RMT also has some light graphite velocity rods and have 1 made specifically for ocean salmon which we use here in the intermountain west for the heavier lake trout fishing. They usually show up at the Sacramento ISE as its one of their main venues annually.

    Another good rod is Vance's Spiral wrap rods. I'm also paired with the 7' rod and have been using these for about 10yrs. They have also handle some large lake trout.

    I believe they may be temporarily sold out, very popular right now.
    Call Richie Hight *(775) 224-2205‬ and ask him what the ETA is, they’re worth the wait.

    I fish for trout using the yellow Eagle Claw Featherlight Koke rod and one of those red Lamiglas Kokanee Tourney rods. I use Lexa 100LC's on both. If I had to pick just one, I would probably go with the Eagle Claw. And the price is very good. I think I paid $29 for mine.
