he PR844 is a good all-around flats rod for a number of different species. Works well with the smaller types of live bait like shrimp, minnows and small crabs, casting spoons and jigs equally well. It is a fast-action rod, but leans towards moderate a bit, making it a good rod for some freshwater applications as well. Saltwater anglers that fish for bass will find this rod to be great for crankbaits and even spinnerbaits. It's also good for big trout, steelhead and small salmon. It's about as versatile a casting rod as we make.
