    Default Featherlight In Action

    I know there's a few more fans already using them here but I just got to put mine to work.

    I own some decent rods already but something seems to mystify me with the thought of fishing with a rod that costs less then 30$.



    I love the action on the rod so far. Just perfect for some small stream trout. I rigged it up to throw some buggers and 3rd cast I deflowered this rods purity!



    I brought my graphite stick with rigged for nymphing but failed to make it out of the trunk. I had a blast with this little yellow rod.



    I'm not looking to say this is a better product then more expensive rods. It just matched well to the small streams and was a heck of a lot of fun to fish!

    Nice report.

    What line do you use on your featherlight?

    Best buy on the market! Have bought 2 for myself and ended up giving both to good friends who love them. Nice report!

    I just ordered one of these today. I read too many reviews to let a good deal pass me up. I just fish for gills and bass anyway but love to catch them on the fly. This rod hopefully will bend with the best of them. I have never owned a fiberglass rod and am looking forward to trying it out. Thanks for the info and pics.

    Just don't expect this as a fast action high performance stick and you won't be let down.
