Caught this cutie with my Nissin 450 ZX Medium. It was caught in a mountain pond so I guess I really can't call it Keiryu fishing, but I can darn sure call it FUN fishing. My Nissin was rigged with one of John V's furled fluorocarbon lines (about 16'), 7' 4X tapered mono leader and a single size 12 barbless hook baited with a worm. The rod handled the fish just fine. I never felt it was strained or anywhere near its limits. I love my ZX.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
