Default Re: ultra light rods for bass, carp

I also like to ultra light it from time to time and got into it after finding the Bill Byrd web site a few years ago. I went out an got a 2wt super fine Orvis rod (an older one from eBay) and went hunting for bass. It's a lot of fun, but you can't really throw big bass flies on it, so I tie on some black marabou with a little green flash and a dear hair head and throw that around. The bass love it. The full flex took some getting use to for me, but I'm a medium flex guy anyway and like the slow action, b/c it's not my nature, so it forces me to stay calm on the water, which is a good thing...for me.
