As of now I still love my spinning rods. I have started flyrod fishing last year and I am on my second year fishing on the fly. I am really enjoying the flyrod a lot. Who knows by this time next year the flyrod just might be my favorite. woot

When I'm targeting bluegill and the like I love my 2wt fly rod. Even an average fish is a challenge on it.

I use a 3wt on the sunnies. They are a blast to catch! Even a bigger blast when you hook a nice 8 to 10 inch sunnie. hooked

.

I love a fly rod in certain situations, but if I had to pick one set up it would be a 5 foot ultralight spinning rod with a 500 class Shimano reel
loaded with 4 to 6 pound line.

Fly rod
Question though - does a bamboo fly rod count as a cane pole?

Love my spinning rigs and occasionally the cane pole. I'm afraid that if try out the fly flinging, well, insert tackle monkey joke --->...

Just my opinion I would think cane pole since no reel is on it. The rod by its self would be a cane pole. hmmm
