When was the last time you tried a rod that was two or three weight designations lighter than your usual setup? Whether you fish in the salt, for warm water species, or trout, there are some legitimate reasons to downsize.
In this episode I focus primarily on the true ultralight line weights – 2, 1, and 0. There are some principles that you can apply regardless of how and where you fish. Most of all, hopefully it gives you an idea of what modern lightweight fly fishing gear is capable of.
I also talk about a few rods that have impressed me, and give some links to where you can check them out.
