This is such a newbie question some of you might want to vomit.
Im going to be in Anchorage from june 1st until august 1st. I will fish every weekend, most of the time from shore for salmon. (maybe trout but if I do, Ill buy some gear at one of the local stores).
I want to know, what type of rod and reel should I bring?
Im really a spinfishing guy. Like a fool, I never learnt to fly fish...
At this moment, I have nothing. Nada. I sold all my gear about 3 weeks ago when I moved from Vancouver to California. Now, I get to buy new gear with the money from the old gear. Its not much, but it'll get me a decent rod and reel
Also, is mono more popular than braided? Whats your personal preference?
What pound test etc?
Is there anything that I should buy before flying in? Anything that would save me some money or is fishing gear pretty much the same price in Anchorage.
Last question, any suggestions for weekend trips from Anchorage? Just for a drive to in the morning, and a drive back in the evening for salmon, or big trout?
Thanks dudes. Anxious to be there.
