I've been bar fishing the Skeena River in BC. We still fish with rods in holders running a spin-n-glo and 12 oz lead. I am looking for some new rods for my family. I have these old 10 foot Garcia Workhorse rods and they are awesome rods. I also have some 10 foot MH Ugly Sticks but they don't have finger grips and can be a little tough for my daughters to hang on.
Any suggestions for the ultimate casting rod? I have been warned to not use rods with too high of graphite content as the 40-60 lbers can be a little hard on them and I sure don't want my family loosing a fish because a rod snapped!!!
