I would like to thank Joe Curcuru and the staff at Fisherman’s Outfitter for their assistance in my recent purchase of my Stand up rod and reel combo. We exchanged some emails and I ended up calling directed to Joe who guided me through to tailor my rod, reel and line selection.
I found Fisherman’s Outfitter after watching a Dennis Braid DVD “Stand up to a Giant” and he made reference to Fisherman’s Outfitter that they can suit your needs so pop in and take a look, he was right a great shop and pleasant professional staff.
The guys loaded my reel and shipped the rod and reel arriving just before my trip from HK to Okinawa Japan where I landed a nice Tuna on stand up gear but nothing Dennis has to worry about yet. The reel screamed and 200yds of top shot disappeared in a flash with my heart pumping in fear hoping the top shot to braid was a good connection and on retrieve a great job by the folks that put the package together.
I will make sure to visit Fisherman’s Outfitter on my next visit to the US and personally thank Joe and the team and further load up on the great selection of Quality gear.
