Ahem, yeah, fishing poles. You were expecting something sophomoric weren't you? We usually leave the fishing gear posts to the professionals, but these rods and reels seemed perfect for the backcountry. The rods are 36" long and weigh 2 oz. and the reels range in weight between 2 and 5 oz. You can attach a spin, fly, or baitcast reel to the rod and still come in under 110 grams for the fly rod, 202 grams for the spin. Buy them at Gofastandlight.com.
