LF: Decent Fishing Rod + Spinning Reel for less than $50

1070 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Ted Rollins
I'm headed to the Okanagan this weekend and I'd like to do a bit of fishing for trouth, bass, perch, and sunfish. I need to get myself a medium weight spinning set-up, and I'm wondering who has advice on where to buy in the Vancouver area.

Looking to spend less than $50, open to offers if someone has used gear.

Army & Navy if you can get to one, or Walmart. I have a $20 "demon stick" from Walmart that i even went sturgeon fishing with last year. It rocks.
If it's not too late, Berry's Bait & Tackle on Westminster Hwy in Richmond has a Father's Week Sale - some are blowout specials.

Spend a little extra and get something that you can used on the coast too. There's tonnes of oppurtunity for it. I grew up in the okanagan...where are you going? You mentioned warmwater species...When is was too warm to flyfish for trout. I used to fish Osoyoos Lake Oxbows, Vaseaux Lake, and Shannon Lake for bass and sunfish.
