I started fishing ultra light when I was a kid.  The pond that I fished, was a heavily fished county park pond. Being new to fishing I had a handmedown zebco 202 I only fished for bluegill there, (very very small bluegill) and the rod was good enough for a long time to come.  It seemed to me though that these little fish might be more fun if I used a lighter rod.  I was right I bought a cheap little rod, a cheap little reel, some 4# test, and when I caught that first fish I knew I was on to something I loved.  There's been a lot of little fish, and a few big fish caught since then.  While the equipment that I now use has gotten better, and the fish I catch are more likely to be bigger ( I did say more likely ), I am so glad I got Hooked on ultra light.  If you haven't figured it out yet let me say it again  I love to fish with ultra light.  Let's hear from some anglers that share my love of ULTRALIGHT fishing fish tales are welcome.

I consider Ultra Light Fishing to be 4# test and under .1/4 oz. and lighter lures or baits.What are you guys thinking?I use 2# test on a Shimano Sensilite 5'6' rod rated for 1-4 #test at the bottom of my ul range.4 lb test I will troll 1/4 oz Cranks on an UL Ugly Stick at the pinnacle of my UL ranges.
