I love this forum, both the posts and the pictures. I notice that a lot of you use ultra light rods, especially shorter ones. I'm an infrequent trout fisherman but it's amazing how many big fish that are caught on such light equipment. Do the lighter rods tax a fish seriously? Do most survive a prolonged fight? Also, why five foot rods? Why not light power rods? Are rods with Gloomis blanks better than St. Croix? (I'm a St. Croix guy myself but don't claim to be an expert or even knowledgeable).
Also, I'm amazed at how all of you share info. I remember how outdoor forums were all once like this, before the days of Facebook and Twitter. Kudos to all of yo
