Tackle Suggestions for Your Trip to El Salto or Picachos

At Anglers Inn, we will gladly provide high-quality St. Croix rods free of charge for the duration of your stay, but we require that you bring your own reels spooled with fresh line – braid, monofilament or fluorocarbon, nothing less than 15 pound test.
