I bought the quality version for my Thru-Hike next year, But in the process of trying to reduce my pack weight I may leave it home even though it only weighs 5 ounces.

I bought the:
NEW 2010 5' ft. 3" in. Pen Fishing Rod Goliath MX 15AA ( All Aluminum) Rear Drag

If you're thru-hiking, or even section hiking, you'll be worried about making miles, not taking several hours/day to fish. Plus getting liscences for every state is expensive and a pain.
