Looking for an idea of the characteristics for a rod (length, action...) before I go shopping. Using small lures, commonly 2-4g bladed spinners or 12 g Toby, going after small brown trout and Arctic char.

  • I don't do much fishing for either of those, but would like to know as well. Aug 4, 2014 at 18:29
  • I'd go with an 6-8 footer and light to medium action. Personal preference, no good reasons. Aug 5, 2014 at 19:33

My personal opinion would be to go with an ultralight rod, in the four to six foot range, with five and a half feet being ideal. An ultralight open face reel to match, loaded with four pound test monofilament compleats the set up.

    Could you add some more details as to why these options?
