I agree! Fishing is my passion in life!
Yesterday, I was catchin' the bluegills and crappie pretty good with my 3wt Cabelas PT. This hot, summer water has the weeds so thick in my fave lake that a fly rod works a lot better than a spin for me. Even with the smallest jig I can cast with my spin rod, the bait sinks too fast and gets stuck in the weeds (I guess I could use a float, but I just won't do it)
I would catch a few with my good presentation of small streamers, but when I nose-hooked a Gulp Alive 1" minnow with no weight at all ...... the crappie would smack it every cast!
I think my Helios should arrive pretty soon. I can hardly wait!
