Getting its start in Japan in 1921 as a manufacturer of quality bicycle components, Shimano launched its fishing tackle division in the U.S. in 1970. Its emphasis on precision parts and quality manufacturing quickly earned it a sterling reputation with American anglers.
At TackleDirect, we stock a big selection of Shimano freshwater fishing rod-and-reel combos. These handy combos will help you catch more fish, whether you fish for panfish in ponds, big bass in lakes or trout and salmon in streams and rivers.
Perfectly balanced, the Shimano combos we stock will save you the time of assembling a quality fishing outfit. They will also save you money compared to buying a rod and reel separately. These freshwater spinning outfits feature Shimano reels and rods that have been time tested for quality. Just add water, fishing line and bait or lure.
You?ll find a variety of fishing pole lengths and actions and reel-retrieve gear ratios that will let you fine-tune your combo to the type of fishing you do. If you?re not sure which one is right for you, just call us toll-free or send us an email. Our staff of fishing experts will steer you to the right combo for your situation and species.
