Surf Fishing Gear the Pros Use – Florida Sportsman

castingBy David Conway

Akios Reels and Cast Pro Rods paired up for max-cast distance.

While researching for the new Sportsman’s Best: Surf Fishing book, written by Florida Sportsman contributor David Brown, I checked in with surf fishing pro Rich Vidulich on some casting technique and tackle questions. It’s always good to learn what surf fishing gear the pros like to use.

Vidulich likes Akios reels and Carolina Cast Pro rods. Akios is a relatively new company, created by Simon Bradbury, the man in charge of product development at Abu-Garcia for many years. Akios, based in England, has many models of casting and spinning reels for every surf use imaginable. Vidulich’s top choice, the Akios S Line 656 Sportscast Shuttle model, is a specially designed long distance casting surf reel with the capacity to reach distances of 100 to 150 yards.  Click Link Below For Full Story!
