    Me three. The brookies here seem to prefer the dark PM with light colored spots, though both are good. Larger streams/rivers and larger trout, mostly browns, I'll use a little bigger rod and reel combo and minnows are hard to beat. On some of the really small brush lined streams as mentioned above, I'll use a long fly rod that I can poke through the brush without spooking the fish. I generally use garden hackels or snails in that situation. I'd rather catch 8-10" brook trout than 5 pound bass. I'd rather eat them, too.

      Yep, lots of lake tributaries with really big fish around here, but I tend toward the little cow-pasture cricks that I have pretty much to myself, even on the first few weekends. I'd love to catch big spawning rainbows all day, but it just isn't worth dealing with the crowds.

          For stocked trout I’ll just go with a little 4 foot setup with a small reel run 6 lb line. For bigger trout I like a 9 foot noodle rods with a class 2 or 3 reel and run 6lb line.

              I just picked up a Berkley Glow Rod. In the handle are 3 AAA batteries and inside the rod are LED's that are blue light and shine up to the tip. I guess it was made for shore fishermen. 6'6" and med heavy - maybe designed for catfish.

                So they do have led lights in it. Is there an on and off switch to it. That’s what I’m thinking it’s a catfish rod for night time fishing.

                  SL, At the end of the handle is a round switch the same diameter of the handle that rotates one way on and back the other way is off. and then there is a end cap after that. I had heard of these years ago and always wanted to try one out. Sometimes you will see one on e-bay.

                      I use a vintage 6ft Fenwick Feralite it is a very light action almost like a fly rod. I have it paired with a vintage Shimano X-2000 Quickfire. It was my grandfathers light trout setup. Fishing with it is kind of like having him around for one last cast.
