I think it was Pee-Wee that said on here how much fun this was. So today I put my 310x Mitchell reel on my 12' fly rod and went to the pond with 3 dozen shiners. I had a freaken ball, catching crappie and bass. I rigged it with a slip float, They felt like monsters on that fly rod and you can throw it a mile. Ya'll give it a try it's a blast.
