Thanks for the welcome to the group and as you can see from some of my photos I like vintage rods and ultra light and fly in particular. I'll be posting a pic from yesterday of a fairly decent Bass (GREEN CARP) , THAT I got on a crappie jig and a 40+ year old Garcia rod.

Patricia, that is awesome! I love a big fish on an ultralight! Excellent catch!

Patricia that's neat that you caught a seven and a half pounder but what's really neat is you had the intuition not to hoarse it it. Great job and if you have pictures send them we love pictures. GOOD FISHIN...

I like ultra light fishing, and last friday i could catch catfish on it so i want to share, it was 7.5 pounds and 68 cm., with a 1/8 jig and 4 pound line, the bait was turkeky winies. And the fight was like 7 miutes.

  I bought a St Croix ultralight last summer at a Musky expo and had so much fun catching bluegills that I ended up on this site. So excited to find a group that enjoys these whippy rods.

A little about myself. I love ultra lite fishing. I probably own 15 ultra lite rod and reels. have a couple Abu Garcia rods and have numerous Berkey rods. Reels I have mostly Pfluegers. For the money they are a smooth running reel and very reliable. I do have other reels but in my opinion I like my Pfluegers the best. I fish small spinners and jigs hoping to get into small spoons. I use 2,4 and 6 pound fluorocarbon line. Some top water with a rubber spider it works great for me. Have fun fella's and GOOD FISHIN..

Thanks Mark!

It is a nice combo.  My wife got the same reel (only next size larger) and a heavier, shorter rod.

Someone just gave me a gift certificate for Cabelas so I may give in and buy another one of the 8 foot rods.
