Do you love big bluegill?
My favorite telescopic pole is the South Bend Skinny Dipper. I use this pole for micro fishing bluegill in the margins and weed lines. The pole is fiberglass and about 5 feet (1.5 meters) in length. Total cost is about $7.50
This pole is probably the only micro fishing pole available in the US with the exception of the top section of a 10 foot BNM cane pole. Small fish on this pole is amazing. Top water action with 2# test and a #12 dry fly is great. Poles do not need to be long or expensive. You just need to match the tackle to the fish. The US has over 1,100+ different types of fresh water fish, and the majority are less than 3-5 inches long.
You get a different perspective when you start to think small.
Cane would do the trick, GM should carry 2# test and fly fishing hooks. I would recommend anything under a #20 dry or nymph.
Price update - Walmart is now carrying these poles at $2.98 per unit. Pair this with 2# test and a #18 fly and you are micro fishing. The pole is also great for fishing under docks and small structures
