Last week we posted about a tiny fly rod and reel that we thought might be the ultimate blue line rig for fishing the thickets around our favorite tiny mountain streams. Tom Chandler over at The Trout Underground Fly Fishing Blog noted that this 30 inch rod with a reel no bigger than a quarter might be used by unsavory angling types to inflate the size of their catches in photographs. Upon reading his post we felt compelled to kick things down a notch and bring out our own tiny Martin set up with a reel not much bigger than a penny and a rod only 18 inches in length. We had hoped to use in our yet uncompleted television series "The Hunt for Small Fish."
