Default Light equipment info

I prefer to fish small streams and light tackle. I currently fish a 3 weight rod and I am looking for a rod that will be an ultralight full flex. I am looking at the TFO 1 weight rod with a medium action. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what rod / reel they would chose in order to make a 12" rainbow feel like a monster

Head to ebay and keep an eye out for an older model Orvis one ounce....this is a 6 1/2 ft. 2wt. rod that truly weighs in at only one ounce....it is a full flex and is a wonder on small streams....it will give you what you want....those 7" wild trout will never feel the same....and I have even finessed a 16" bow and a 14" brown out of the park waters with it

Default superfines

check out the orvis superfines--they make a 1wt that's sweet-and a 6 ft 2 wt.both are beautiful rods----Scott makes a line of fiberglass rods that are perfect for mountain streams--they cast like a dream--catching a fish on one is more fun than drowning kittens(ha,ha that was a little,cruel joke)all joking aside they are great rods.I think superfines are 345.00 not sure of the price of the Scott's.

If you don't want to pay the big bucks for such equipment, check out LLBean..they have a nice little 6 1/2 ultra lite for $99
