Browning® Fishing Six Rivers Salmon/Steelhead Trigger Rods
I have flown with this rod for two years now and have fished from Wyoming to Mexico with this rod and love it!!! The versatility and sensitivity is great for its price!! I fish 12 to 20 lb test and love the adaptability and durability. I have bagged 10lb bass on Falcon Lake TX and 10lb browns in Wyoming with this rod. It’s one of my top three that I choose when I fly for a fishing trip.

I have the 17#, 8'6" casting and 8'6" 12#-rated spinning.
The casting reel is a Diawa Millionaire CV-Z 253, 17# Trilene XL.
Accuracy of the rod is excellent, feel, sensitivity, strength are very good. It has yet to catch its intended steelhead, but 12 Coho salmon are notched on the handle.
Casting action is smooth, with enough backbone to add a boost to your longer casts.
Rated at 1/4 oz+, it easily casts 1/4 oz jigs over 100'. With 3/8 oz+ you'll clear the other river bank. On short casts to closer targets, even 3/16 oz is well-handled and goes right where you want it.
The 12# 8'6" spinning rod outcasts and outfishes my 8'6" 20# Shakespeare Ugly Lite using the same reels and lines, as 6 Rivers is more precise, more sensitive and has more backbone on the cast, even with its lighter line-rating.
I also really like the reverse beavertail handle which fits very well and is warm & comfortable to hold. The cork quality is very good. It is a very nice handling rod for panfry to freezer-quality fish.
I strongly suggest these rods as a very good choice. Even better, they are value-priced.
