Rhode Island Saltwater Angler Association show a complete success 3/9/13
The RISAA show held this past weekend at the Providence Civic center was a complete success. I was manning the PowerPro booth Saturday and Sunday. I was there as a new member of the Shimano Pro Staff. I must have spoken to a hundred people about the advantages of PowerPro braid. The number one question on everyone mind was how do you connect PowerPro to regular mono. The answer, I use a back to back uni knot. Once I figure out how to attach and upload videos to my new website I will post a video on how I tie the knot.
I also got to see, feel, and play with the Shimano rods and reels. Now I have been a long time fan and user of Shimano reels, but I had not had a chance to check out their rods. If you have not seen or felt these rods you need to. For the money, I don’t think you can beat them. Specifically look at the Teramar rods. They have rods that will cast plugs up to 3oz and rods light enough to cast ¼ oz soft plastic. Match this with a Spheros 4000 or 6000 reel and you are ready for any striper or bluefish. Check out the Saltwater Edge for these rod and reel combo.
