Hi Folks,
Has anyone had any expirience or know anything about the small Ross Beaver Meadow rods. I just ordered a 6'6" 2/3 from Just Reels. I am planning to make it my Brook Trout small stream rod. There is a good return policy if I can't stand it. I was just wondering if any of you had ever used one or know of a product review of the little toothpick.

Happy Holidays

Let me answer my question for you. They are fine rods. I have been catching big Bluegills with mine all afternoon and it casts quite well. Has a nice feel to it and when I get the proper line on there I am sure that it will feel even better. The lightest I had was a four. It is going to be worthy of the freestone streams of the mid-Atlantic hills.

Good to hear. Nobody else had obviously tried these rods. Personally I like the short and light rods, but unfortunately I have no bluegills to go try such a rod on. Wish I had, but the access to convenient small water/small fish is not good where I live.

And with the water temp at a brisk 42 F and the air temp 50, I just had to go back today and try for something on the bottom. Although it is only a two acre pond there have been eight pound Largemouth Bass taken there. I brought alomg a few tiny crawfish imitations that I often take big Bluegills with and sometimes a small bass. In the cold water you simply crawl them along. I picked up three bass, the bigger one is hopefully attached to this post. It was fun on a 6X leader on that tiny rod.
