when fishing smaller streams like the betsie pm or little m. i like to use my 10ft spinning rod. i have a 13.5 and a 12.5 and they are just cumbersome to me. rarely do i make drifts longer than say 50 ft and a 10ft seems to be more than enough for me. does anyone else do this. haha i always get kinda funny looks from other pinners but hey i dont care.
