One lucky attendee at the Nutmeg TU Holiday Party will take home his or her choice of a new rod and reel.
The party, originally scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 17, has been postponed to Tuesday, Jan. 21.
The door prize will be the choice of a fly outfit or spinning outfit.
Fly rod outfit
The 4 piece, 9’ 9 weight Axiom II-X is Temple Fork Outfitter’s latest fast action, high modulus carbon fiber fly rod that delivers both the energy necessary for long casts and the incredible tracking and recovery which results in accuracy at distance. In a beautiful satin sky blue finish it features a premium cork handle, RECOIL guides and ultra-lightweight snake guides and comes with a rod sock and tube. Paired with TFO’s no-fault lifetime warranty and top-end BVK sealed drag super large arbor reel, this outfit, which retails for $600, is the perfect tool for chasing Long Island Sound Stripers or Housatonic River Northern Pike.
The TFO 7’6” medium heavy, 1 piece Inshore series spinning rod was designed for the conventional tackle angler fishing anywhere along the roughly 43,000 miles of coastline from Casco Bay to South Padre. It features a soft, fast tip and a deep, powerful progressive taper to deliver better balance and crisper action while offering substantial weight reduction. Handsomely finished in non-glare sky blue, the rod retails for over $200 and is fitted with a premium cork grip, TFO’s exclusive skeletal reel seat and topped with Fuji Fazlite Corrosion Control guides. Matched with a spinning reel, this outfit will become your new favorite tool for Stripers, Bluefish, Albies or anything that swims in the Sound.
