    Default big fish on light tackle

    For all those who think it "unethical" to catch large fish with ultra light tackle...this is for you.

    I have never done this light weight fishing but all i can say is that i assume you must be a learned fisherman......it seems that panicking when its fish on is not the answer.....what i mean is that when i get a fish on all hell still breaks loose even after 3 years....i suppose this would be the end of my Sage 000000.It seems to me you need a cool head to maintain control of the fish and keep your rod in 1 piece
    I think no innocent species of wit or pleasantry should be suppressed; and that a good pun may be admitted among the smaller excellencies of lively conversation.

    Thats where you're wrong nick. The trick is to not panic, and let the rod do the work.
