This is a great introductory rod! Throwing modesty out the window, Okuma Celilo fishing rod actions are dead on, serving the full range of salmon and steelhead techniques at a price that's simply overflowing with value. Featuring graphite composite blanks, Aluminum Oxide guide inserts, stainless steel hooded reel seats and thru-blank reel seats on casting models, there's a ton to like about Celilo rods. Pick from the extensive selection and hit the water ready for action. Celilo rods make it just that easy.
