Do you love big bluegill?
LEO;; THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I SAW ONE OF THESE THAT YOUR POSTING;; HOWEVER !!! IN THE ;; LATE 50;S;; EARLY 60;S I USEDA ALL METAL ROD ;; BAIT CASTING REEL;; THAT PROVED TO BE JUST AS INDRUSTABLE AS THIS ONE ! 5; 1/2 FT LONG;; NOT SENTIVE AT ALL;; JUST;; AS TUFF A ROD AS YOU COULD GET !! ON SOME OCCASSIONS AROUND HERE;; I COME ACROSS ONE;; I;LL KEEP A EYE OUT FOR ONE FOR YA !
…LOL.... i dont fish anything over 6-0'
All my go to ultra lights were 5' 6" or 6' I probably have owned over 100 through the years and still have lots of them in my barn. I bought an 8' and got to admit its getting to be my goto rod. I know there are circumstances where it not feasible but when possible I'll fish it I really love the bend and sensitivity of it.
OK;; SO I DO LOVE MY FLY RODS;; BUT ON OCCASSION I PICK UP A SPINNING ROD;; MY FAVS ARE FENWICK IN AROUND 7 FOOTERS;; (( WISHING I COULD FIND LONGER ONES !!!)) LIKE DICKY SAYS;;; JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THE LONGER BEND;; CASTING BEAUTIES;; NOT TO MENTION;; BEING ABLE TO ADD A TOUCH MORE LEVERAGE ON BIGGER FISH. TO EACH;; THEIR OWN;; ON THE LENGTH OF RODS THEY PREFER;;;; I JUST HAVE A LOT MORE FUN;; USING GOOD;; LONGER RODS......... AND IF I COULD FIND SOMEONE;; WHO COULD MAKE A GOOD FLY ROD;; AROUND A 12 FOOTER;;; OH YEA !!! WE WOULD BE TALKING !!!!!!!
12ft is definitely in the realm of long casting for salmons and dealing with heavy fighters in fast currents. I love to carry super long poles at time as well, for fishing in hard to reach locations either along the banks or while on the kayaks. I already broke a few rods trying to struggle with fishes that accidentally snagged on heavy branches, or worst yet, underwater structures, while dealing with high wind on the kayaks. No fun.
Definitely an indestructible 12ft, with medium or heavy casting strength. Perfect for ocean front surf fishing, and freshwater ultimate casting away from everyone.
OOOO LEO;; IN MY MUCH YOUNGER DAYS; I USE TO SALT WATER FISH;;;; A LOTTTTTT !!! LOVED THE 12;; TO 16 FT RIGS !! REDFISH;; BLUEFISH;; SNAPPER;; BONITA;; TRIGGERFISH; SHARK; SNOOK; CROAKER WAS ALWAYS FUN !! ((( THOSE WERE ONLY A VERY FEW OF WHAT I CAUGHT !!))

ALWAYS WANTED TO CATCH;; A ;; PISCASO TRIGGERFISH;; ONLY EVER SAW ONE ; ALIVE;; BEAUTIFUL FISH;; WITH A NASTY REPUTATION !!
