      On the mountain streams I use a 5' ugly stick ultralight with a Shakespeare microspin ultralight closed spinning reel and 4# line. On the rivers and lakes I use a 6'6" ugly stick light action with a Shakespeare open face spinning reel and 20# spiderwire line.

        I use antique equipment. I have a 5 1/2 foot Eagle Claw ultra light rod with a Mitchell 308 reel and Royal Bonnell brown 2 lb test line. I have caught 5 pound trout on the 2 lb line because of the 308's smooth drag and playing the fish and not trying to "horse" them in too fast.

            Wow! I feel over gunned on this one. I use a 10.5' Fenwick HMX in light action, shimano saro 2500F reel with 175 yards of 6# p-line. I switch spools loaded with 10# if I need it.And use floro leaders in 3 to 8' lengths depending on water conditions and spies I'm after. Plenty of steelheads where I fish and you never know when a 20# will hita long Lake Erie or anywhere in a Michigan stream. For Brookies I use a 11' UL with 2 # florocarbon.Where I fish for Brookies you have to crawl the last 100 yards or so through a field along a old brush line in the middle of the field. The creek is only about 3 feet wide. Giant 8" brookies abound there along with an occasional rainbow or brown trout that gets lost.4 or 5 days a year we sneak them and it's over,but they are true wild brookies in that run and it's awesome fishing.

                        Have two, 1 is a small 4'6" rod, flueger combo, 6lb line, for stocked trout and 1 is a 9' cabelas rod, okuma reel class 3, 6lb line. That's for trophy trout.

                          I use a shimano symmetry 500fj spinning real with 2-4lb test line on a 5'4" st.croix trout series ultralight fast action rod. It truly is an amazing combo, I can cast a wax worm with a size 14 hook and no weight a long distance with pin point accuracy (under branches and ledges) and the feel of the fight with a small or large trout will get your heart racing ! It's definitely not a tow truck ! You really get to battle the fish to get it in but the rod is very durable and flex able. I personally wouldn't push its limits due to its price. I have caught very large trout on this rod
