Been tinkering with ultralight fly rods and Micro Fishing. Made one Micro Fly Rod using a Pen Fishing Rod and a Crappie Jigging Reel. It worked! Then, decided to tinker around some more... ended up buying another Pen Fishing Rod that came with a Mini-Fly Reel. After a few more mods, came up with Micro Fly Rod II... Fun stuff! May be of interest to some!

There is a guy on You Tube that customizes and fishes with pen fly rods. You should check it out. His name is PaulPro PP.

Was able to mount the reel seat and the hook keeper on the next Micro Fly Rod. But, the snow stopped, rain slowed... headed to the local pond. Limited out using an Olive/Brown Near Deere! Looks like this pattern continues to produce this Season. Today's Video and Picture of the Rod.

Started out fishing a five weight yesterday for Bass, did well but then decided to fish a COAF Griffith's Gnat in the Canal for little fishes. After a while, switched to the COAF Micro Fly Rod. Lotta fun catching them on ultralight gear; like that it fits in the fly vest rain gear pocket! Yesterdays' Video.
