If your butts on the line, and you fish where I do/have the word 'light weight' is the same as signing up for a 'Death Wish.' If you ever get to fish the Fly Only bit of the North Umpqua or any place on the Deschutes, you'll soon know exactly what I mean.
And yes, a pound or close to it.
For an object lesson (nothing bad intended with what follows) but a 'pound' really isn't that much weight. Take a walk to your kitchen cupboard and look at the weight of the (I think this is right) a "303" standard can of soup/what-ever. Most will be 14 to 16 oz; you tell me what you think a 'pound' is in the way of weight as you hold same in hand? For illustrative purposes this will make my point.
