Hi, I am a tackle fanatic a bit, so I am interested in your favourite seatrout outfit.
I have tried a lot of rods, reels and lines and finally come to Scierra HMS 9'6" 6/7wt rod, Scierra EDP reel (would like to change it for Scierra Traxion reel - it is difficult to find some in the shops) and Rio Outbound WF7 floating line.
What tackle do you use and are you satisfied? Thanks _________________ Pike

your favourite seatrout outfit.
I have quite a few outfits, but most are medium fast rods and a good reel - the rods I use most are Loomis GL3, Loomis IMX and Scierra MPA and HMS. Rod weights are #5-#7 and all are 9'.
(would like to change it for Scierra Traxion reel - it is difficult to find some in the shops)
Do NOT go for a Traxion reel for sea trout. I had a good connection with Scierra, who was nice enough to provide me with several Traxion reels. Let me say it like this: I have one left, which has never seen salt. The rest were all returned because of rust - some to the extend where they were useless. I can't recommend them.

Well, I vote for Danielsson Reels as worlds ultimate sexiest and durable line holders. Everything else is squirt guns in my opinion (says a true Danielsson fan, so sorry, guys )
My preferred rods for seatrout fishing I ad to the Danielssons are for calm conditions and autumn fishing a 9,6-6-4 TCR, for mid and allround conditions a 9,3-7-4 Xi2 and for heavier conditions a 9-9-3 RPLXi. And a couple of other rods to fool around.
Fly lines are mostly a Loop Opti Still #6 for the TCR, a Guideline Pounch #6 for the Xi2 #7 and a bucket full of other fly lines to fool around

Martin: Thanks a lot for your advice, you've saved my money. It is interesting, Vanuz has very good experience with Scierra EDP, no rust a it works well.
I have tried some 5wt rod (Sage Xp), 8wt rod (Sage Xi2), 6wt rods (G.Loomis GLX CC and St.Croix Legend Ulra) which I used for freshwater too. Then I deciced to purchase rod only for saltwater and I think my decision was right.
Fly-only: Thanks to. I had Danielsson LW too, but in size 2Five and it was to small for 7wt Outbound line. But you are true, Danielsson produces excellent reels. _________________ Pike
