Sport Chalet Offers ‘Reel’ Tips And Gear To Help Hook More Fish This Summer

June 3, 2014

Premier specialty sporting goods retailer has large selection of fishing gear and equipment

LOS ANGELES, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — According to a recent report released by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, more than 90 million Americans go fishing each year; however, a common saying states, “10 percent of fishermen catch 90 percent of the fish.” This summer, premier specialty sporting goods retailer Sport Chalet has everything from gear and equipment to professionally led seminars for both the seasoned sportsmen looking to keep schooling fish and the amateur anglers ready to join the top 10 percent.


“Fishing is a great pastime, especially during the summer months, but everybody knows that it’s more fun when you are catching more fish,” said Sport Chalet Expert Chris Burston. “To help customers make the most of their time on the water this summer, Sport Chalet provides a wide range of fishing gear and equipment, as well as informative seminars with tips from the pros.”

Burston recommends the following gear to reel in the prized catch:

    --  Try a lightweight set up. For freshwater fishermen, the Abu Garcia Revo
        S30 Spin Reel is a lightweight reel that is strong enough for hours of
        fishing. A unique design ensures even line lay with mono, fluorocarbon
        or braided lines, making things super smooth and reliable. Pair the reel
        with a lightweight rod like the Shakespeare Micro Series Spin Rod for an
        ultra-lightweight set up that gives the enhanced sensitivity needed to
        detect small bites.
    --  Look for durable materials. Sportsmen who prefer saltwater should try
        the Avet MXL 6/4 Reel, which is constructed from marine-grade aluminum
        and stainless-steel components for superior corrosion resistance. The
        Abu Garcia Volatile Casting Rod is equally equipped to face the elements
        with a thickened rod blank wall for added backbone, strength and
    --  Check out kits for great values. Those who favor fly fishing should
        check out the Redington Crosswater 890-4 Fly Fishing Outfit, a complete
        kit that offers impressive performance without an imposing price. The
        medium-fast action 8-weight Crosswater rod is easy to cast and powerful
        enough to handle big fish while the matching Crosswater reel has a
        proven and reliable drag to help land a trophy.
    --  Stay organized. Keep tackle ready and easy to access with the Plano
        Hydro Flo Flex N Go Satchel. The flexible strap system makes the satchel
        easier to customize and organize than traditional tackle boxes.
    --  Get rid of glare. Sunglasses do more than just shading eyes from the
        sun. Polarized lenses help reduce reflections and glares off the water
        making it easier to spot fish. Typhoon Cancun Sunglasses are a top
        selling classic that never go out of style and feature polarized
        AquaView advanced hydrophobic lenses that repel water, cancel
        dust-attracting static charges and resist oily smudges.

In addition to its products, Sport Chalet offers free Catch More Fish seminars at several stores. These seminars are led by leading professional and tournament anglers who share their insider knowledge and answer questions from participants. Free prize drawings will also take place during the classes. Consumers can find more information about upcoming seminars at http://blog.sportchalet.com/events/.
