Thank you so much for the reply; I understand about the 7 or 8wt rod! Yesterday was very windy and I was out again for sunfish(got a few good ones, this time) and the wind I seemed to be cursing every minute or so!
Thank you for the suggestion on site sponsors as well. I understand how a small, user-supported site like this depends on site sponsors! I will look into that later.
And once again thank you for the reply. I think right now I'm going to head to a small park pond somewhat close to where I live that apparently stocked some rainbows in January; I don't know if any would be left by now, but hey! Why not try right!
