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!

Worked on the Micro Fly Rod adding the reel seat and hook keeper. And then, snow stopped, rain slowed, so headed to Murphy City Hall Pond for Stocker Trout! Limited out using an Olive/Brown Near Deere! Today's Video
