For me, part of the enjoyment I've taken from discovering ultralight lure fishing, whether that be saltwater LRF or fishing for freshwater Perch, is from the increased mobility and comfort levels experienced. When I started fishing this style just under a year ago now, I didn't really know which lures and jigs I was going to use from one session to the next.

Australia seems to be ahead in this process every year. Check out this promotional video from Shimano Australia for 2012: Read the rest of this entry »
