    Quick point of clarification on casting past fish.... you'll find out very quickly they're not dumb. If you pull a woolly bugger or some other crayfish pattern towards the fish, they'll freak.

    Since no one has mentioned Global Dorber, I don't know if you could find a better panfish rod at such a low price. Nice flex, and you can't beat the price.

    The other thing you can play with is the extreme close up shots, of some nice scales or tail. Those turn out pretty good as well.

    I tell my wife that if I'm running late, the fishing is probably really good. Or the fishing is poor and I'm just being stubborn. Either way, I'm pretty much never home on time.
