Fishing with surface irons can be a great technique at times. But, it takes practice, practice, practice. There are several types of irons... as an example there are lightweight surface irons, regular irons, and ling cod jigs. The latter being used strictly for up-and-down jigging since they are typically made of heavier metal. Regular irons, such as those made by Salas, can be casted out or jigged up-and-down.

I would suggest maybe getting a used jig stick from a tackle shop or garage sale or something. Calstar and Seeker make good jig sticks. Don't get anything less than 8 feet. For the reel, I would suggest getting something new. Newell makes some really nice reels for casting irons. You probably won't want to use anything that can't handle at least 30 lb. test.

Once you get your setup, try casting an iron (without hooks) in an open field or on the beach. It takes some time to develop a smooth technique. Just be patient and have fun...
