Review: Perfect Youth Rod-And-Reel Combo

Here's a great gift idea for the aspiring angler on your list.

It's not always easy to find the perfect gift for the young anglers in your family, but a no-fail option is fishing gear, rods and reels especially. The Ugly Stik GX2 Youth Spincast combo is the perfect selection for beginning anglers. It's easy to operate, good luck breaking it and it's extremely versatile.

The renowned graphite/fiberglass rods offer better balance for a lighter feel, and the eye-catching cosmetics will impress the younger anglers who are into looking "cool", also.

This is a great combo that will stand up to the abuse of catching a lot of fish, and will look good doing it!
