One of the nice things about fishing for sunnies is, it is not that expensive. I have picked up the five foot ugly stick combos over the years on sale for about $26.00. I have a few that I have had for years and they are still going strong. I love the full fight you feel using a good ultra light combo.
Can't beat it!
Side Note: Big Channels,Bass,Carp,and Blue Cats are an added bonus.
