Plenty of action and making me think about using lighter gear to get more fun out of what I catch too :clap: :thumbsup:

go one better.....LRF, micro jigs, put a proper bend in the carbon...if you wanna use bait, fine...use a spinning rod, up to 28g and a light lead :love:
Just accept it, you'll always have sand in your car !!

My point is i don`t give a toss about fishing light for small fish...you might get a good fight but i don`t get any enjoyment from catching small fish.

It just takes me back to when I started fishing where every fish would bend your rod or pull it in
Last year my stiff ultra power towed in a bullhuss no problem but without much action, so I prefer the thrills using lighter gear


Playing fish for a long time for kicks puts the fish under great stress,floods the muscles with lactic acid which often results in the death of the fish even though it looks as though it swam away strongly. I prefer to get the fish in ASAP,weigh and photograph it and return it unharmed in good condition.

Got myself an anyfish 4 & bait :love: 2 years ago (that I use with a Daiwa 7HT) and love using it when conditions permit, casts well and gets the fish in without undue delay but you can see every bite and feel them kicking on the way in, which is much better than the feel I got with my first couple of beach rods :thumbsup:
