The right tool for the job

My family has been using Eagle Claw Featherlight rods for years. They are very cheap to buy and last a long time. I believe the ones we have now are around 20 years old. When fishing for those weak mouthed trout and small salmon it is nice to have a rod with so much give. They also work grout with down riggers when trolling.

Eagle Claw Featherlight

I wanted to do a review on a rod I purchased this summer. The Eagle Claw Featherlight spinning rod. I purchased it for my GF, I found good information and reviews this series so I figured for $20-$30 it was worth the risk. My motto with fishing equipment is "you get what you pay for" so I now have only rods over $70 in my collection. But this rod really tests that saying - you get a lot of performance and features for the money not to mention it can withstand a beating! I fell in love with it and now it's "our" rod. For the money, I don't think you can find a better rod. Great for Crappie, Sunfish, Perch, and Trout!
