Subject: Use An UltraLight Fishing Rod In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 29, 2014 at 06:42AM by Lee Byard)

los suenos fishing rodThe ultralight fishing rod is often dismissed. Los Suenos anglers think it to be too delicate and too thin. Its shorter lines and reduced lure weights seem counterintuitive for Costa Rica, and it’s often left behind on charter tours.

This is a mistake.

The ultralight fishing rod has a place among Los Suenos’ many reefs. Those who prefer inshore charters will find it to be extremely useful.

The ultralight rod - due to its hollowed materials and parabolic shape - has exceptional sensitivity. It will respond immediately to the presence of a fish, and its quick-spinning reel proves essential. This option also features an extended line reach, with lightly weighted lures casting more efficiently against the current. This provides anglers with a greater range of depth and helps them to find the more elusive Los Suenos breeds.

Using an ultralight rod in Costa Rica is strongly recommended for any inshore expedition. Don’t be fooled by the diminutive size. This tool can snag reef-hiders and rock-dwellers with ease.
