Tackle Used By Action Belize

RODS & REELS

We supply spinning reels on light to medium rods for casting in the rivers. Also have heavier conventional reels and rods for live baiting cuberas and offshore bottom fishing. A typical snook setup is a light spinner with 15# test (mono). We are using braided lines on most reels now which will give more line test with smaller diameter. You are welcome to bring and of your own equipment as you see fit. We have some rods for baitcasters so if you want to bring your reel, we may have the rod you need for it. The airlines receive a rod carrier (sportive equipment) and count it as one of your allowed checked articles.
