I have been doing a little rod shopping again lately.  Oh yes, there is a reason and a story behind it. . . some other time.  Anywho, I have often joked about just buying another Ugly Stik.  Seriously, for the price, they are good rods, and they come in a variety of models.  There is an Ugly Stik for a lot of fishing situations.

They really are just about indestructible.  I have one that I have had since I was in high school.  I have replaced the tip guide, but other than that, the rod is still original condition and very much functional.  It has dried off more than a few.

On top of all of that, there have been some great Ugly Stik commercials over the years:

Looks like a good weekend.  Better grab the Ugly Stik and head out!
