    Thanks.. My buddy lives on a golf course and Thursday and Friday night we meet up for a few beers and chase Talapia, Carp, Green Sunfish and Bass. It is a total hoot on light tackle..

    fly rods are the best, I'm still trying to catch my first striper on one. Nice fish!

    Nice! Sounds like fun on a light rod like that.
