B 'n'M is the 2013 "Official Rod Sponsor" of the Trail!
B'n'M has been helping crappie fishermen catch more fish for years, now they are helping the catfisherman! The all new Silver Cat Series is made of 100% fiberglass, and offers many features only found in catfish rods at a much higher price point. The nylon cord grip will offer great, no-slip handling even with wet, slimy hands, and is durable enough for use in a rod holder. The super-slick ceramic guide inserts are framed by equally high-quality aluminum oxide alloy and will provide smooth line flow for heavy lines. The graphite reel seat will accommodate any size reel, and will keep it tight to the rod for maximum sensitivity. Finally, the glow-in-the dark tip will help you see the lightest of bites during night-time fishing. The Silver Cat is a medium action rod, with a sensitive tip to maximize your catfishing efforts. As with all B'n'M products, they believe sensitivity is the key to catching more fish, regardless of the species.
