He'd be better off asking his mom for help cleaning up his room

That may be too big. I would think that it might be hard to cast unless you use a weighted float. And if you haven't figured it out, there be piranhas in the TFF pond.

I think it is too big. Maybe shoot for a light action spinning rod, 4-8 lb test line, 1/32, 1/16, 1/8 jigs. Where are you going fishing?

Also, no more pictures of your room except a picture of that lady. thumb

What brand of moisturizer is that on the night stand?


A little bit of lotion is good for cork handles, but not the EVA foam on that rod.

Agree, get a medium light spinning set up with a size 2000 reel and 6lb test for crappie fishing.
You'll have much more fun.

If yall think that room is messy you should see my kids' rooms.

Catfanman, I would have a hard time casting a light lure with that. You may want to use a spinning reel instead.

Often goes on sale at Academy for $30

In just about every Walmart fishing section (also at Academy)

For a spinning reel and crappie/other pan fish, I really like 15lb braid to 6ft leader of 6lb test,
but to keep it simple 6lb test in anything other than Berkley Vanish and Omniflex would be fine.
