Tackle for Pond Fishing

Post by Burpp »

Hi all,
was looking for a set of tackle for pond fishing. Any set to intro? Was looking at Eupro Salty Chief to go with Shimano aernos XT. Is this setup good enough? Or is there any other good recommendation?

Thanks in advance.

What pond and type of fish will you be using the setup for? That setup is generally a good overall pond tackle depending on the type of thrill and nature of the pond area. Some people likes lighter tackle for longer thrill, some likes heavier to ensure more successful landings. Also, what's your budget?

I've not fished at Pasir Ris Pond before but I understand that the main pond is rather big ya? If Salty Chief can comfortably cast the distance you need there then your original choice is pretty much what I would stick to. Stradic CI4 are pretty popular among pond anglers for its light frame and smoothness, but it's over your budget though.

If you're considering ELF, you may want to consider NASCI too. I think there's only slight price different between them. NASCI has one more bearing and uses ARB I think.

I think i will short list the Elf and Nasci. Now, should i go for the C3000 or the 4000? C3000 with a drag of 4kg, 4000 with a drag of 6kg. Which should i get?

if you intend to use offshore after the trip, get 4000. but if using in freshwater or ponds 3000 is enough unless you kiasu cos should be same price
