    Costco Stocks a Nice Spinning Combo Kit for Beginning Anglers

    This Abu Garcia fishing combo has pretty much everything a beginning angler needs.Here is a great solution if those thinking about getting into fishing in Taiwan, but don't know where to start with regard to basic gear. Let’s face it; wandering into your local neighborhood tackle shop can be a little intimidating. Every year about this time, Costco stocks some kind of all-in-one fishing kit. That’s where I picked up my first rod and reel in Taiwan, built up my tackle collection from from there.

    This year they are offering one of their better setups yet. It a kit by the folks at Pure Fishing, and includes an Abu Garcia 6’-6” medium-heavy action spinning rod, Pflueger Trion GX-7 spinning reel, a spool of Spiderwire 10-pound Spiderwire EZ mono line and a small tackle box packed with a variety of spoons and spinner lures. The whole package is selling for NT$1,999The Pflueger Trion GX-7 reel gets a five-out-of-five-star customer rating from Bass Pro Shops.

    This is really one of the better fishing combos that Costco has offered for tackling a variety of fish. Past combos have either been too light or too heavy to be useful to most beginning anglers. This one hits a nice sweet spot in the middle. It’s probably best suited for bass, predatory carp species, juvenile tarpon, snakeheads and barramundi.
