I wanted to share what I've put together to fish with this year. I decided to go with D.A.M. Quick 265/110 reels. I like the size and feel. Everything I've read says these are quality. I like Fenwick rods and I have "a few" in the rod holder, so I put the 110 on a Fenwick. For the 265 I decided to try a Berkley Cherrywood HD. I've read mixed reviews on this rod, but I like the new old school feel to go with this reel. I think they pair well, but we'll see when I get it out on the water.
I took the 110 out yesterday. It was cold out and I don't think the 110 likes the cold. It will take a little getting used to, but I feel like it's going to be a lot of fun.
D.A.M. Quick Microlite (265) (1961-1967) on Berkley Cherrywood HD CWD2 561ULS with J-Braid X4 8lb (0.13) and 10mm speed clip.
D.A.M. Quick 110 (1967-1974) on Fenwick HMX56UL-MFS with J-Braid X4 8lb (0.13) and 10mm speed clip.
Lures will be mainly 1/8 - 1/32oz and a couple 1/4oz, including jitterbugs and tiny george in various colors. A lot of different jigs with 2-3" soft baits, some light crank baits, and a bunch of little spinners.
