Your Stories

This is where you share your stories. Everybody has at least one. First trip, the one that got away, what worked and what didn't, or just a good story about finesse spinfishing or finesse baitcasting.

Your thoughts and comments might be just what it takes to persuade another angler that take a new look at ultralight spinfishing for trout, or even more radical, fishing an ultralight baitcaster for trout.
