Overview

Ultralight spin-fishing provides much the same challenge and excitement as fly-fishing - with a mere fraction of the investment in equipment. More accurate casts, more strikes and a better feel of what's happening at the end of the line are just some of the benefits of this popular angling method. Despite its name, ultra-light equipment is robust enough for pursuing trophy-sized freshwater fish as well as more aggressive saltwater species.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When anglers decide to try a more challenging alternative to fishing with the popular spinning rod and reel, they usually opt for flyfishing or ultralight spin-fishing. The latter, which uses downsized spinning gear, lacks the cachet of flyfishing, but its coterie of enthusiasts is growing as more fishers discover the thrill of catching big fish on small equipment. Much finesse is required to reel in, for instance, a leaping 16-pound salmon using a lightweight rod and a six-pound test line. Cammann (Fishing Vermont's Streams and Lakes, Countryman, 1992) clearly explains in text and pictures the tackle and techniques that will enable anglers to succeed in their quest for fish ranging from bass to barracuda. Recommended for public libraries.-Will Hepfer, SUNY at Buffalo Libs.
