The fisheries of the Northeast and Northwest have been in turmout to say the least. However the future looks bright. The lake trout have come back strong in the last few years and the Northwest rivers are seeing the strongest runs of salmon and steelhead in recent history. With input from some of the top fishermen on these waters we developed the Celilo series. Throwing modesty out the window we nailed these actions and developed the perfect salmon, trout and bottom bouncing graphite rods. Although beautiful, you don't have to take out that second mortgage to load the boat with them.

I had to update my review after only a month or so or using it. It broke from the tip all on its own. I take good care of my rods and when I went to use it the tip was broken out of nowhere. I'm 100% sure no one touched my rods and they weren't bent. I had it strapped to my ugly stik gx2 rod and that one was perfectly fine.
I am happy to say that I have landed 20+ fish in the 1 to 2 pound range on this ultralight rod and have been happy with its performance. I like the feel, the hookset is ok for an ultralight (some never feel like they have set the hook well). We have wind 24/7 this spring so casting without wind is still to be seen. All in all I think it is well worth the budget friendly price.
Just make sure it gets shipped alone, or with something super light.
After catching a few panfish like that I put on the smallest splitshot I had, which was like a quarter of the size of my pinky fingernail, and let the worm sink to the bottom and hopped it around. Now on my other rod I could mostly tell when something was 'pecking' at whatever was on my line and when something 'bit' it because the 'pecking' was a very very slight jiggle and the bite was a jiggle that had a little umph to it. But with this rod even when they're just 'pecking' at it it taps the rod twice as hard than the 'bite' on my other rod. So I missed quite a few fish due to the rod being too sensitive if that's a thing. It's just something I have to get used to but once I do it should be super nice.
Lastly I used an atomic tube 1/32 oz with a trout magnet EZ-float or whatever they're called and was able to launch that a country mile. I was tossing it down from the top of a 2-3 story tall dam down to the bottom and was able to keep the line out of the rapids due to the increased rod length. I was also able to set the hook quite well considering I had a ton of line out.
Will update review if something changes the next few times I go out fishing and catch some trout or bass.
Super sensitive (might take some getting used to)
6'6 length seems really good for casting distance (with 1000 reel anyway) also has 7 guides
Hook holder seems good (it's like a staple)
Seemed to have decent backbone for being so sensitive (caught a monster pumpkinseed and the rod didn't double over like an ugly stick and was able to set the hook quite easily even with lots of line out)
2 pieces held tight together (didn't come apart)
Cork handle feels pretty smooth and comfy straight out of the box (I had two pieces of plastic covering both pieces of cork)
Color of the rod was a nice burgundy color with striation rings around it once you shine light on it (kind of like cats eye or something?)
Others said to order the rod by itself because amazon will just shove it into a box with other stuff so that's what I did and my box came in perfect condition with rod unharmed so I'd recommend doing the same.
UPDATE: I caught a bass close to 2 pounds and it took me like 2-3 minutes to get it up to the shoreline. He bent the rod a ton a handful of times and I was forced to lift it out of the water onto land by the rod and the rod is fine. I don't know what all the reviewers are doing to break the rod in half or break the tip off. I know 2 pounds isn't a lot of weight but for the 2 seconds I had the fish out of the water by the rod it never felt like it was going to snap.
I was really pleased with the quality of the rod as soon as I opened the box! My expectations were not all that high at the sub thirty dollar price point but whatever they were, they were exceeded. I'm more of a weekend angler than serious fisherman and I've owned plenty of big-box store combo spinning rods & reels that are great for wetting a line and not much more. The Celilo is a HUGE step up from the stiff, rubber-grip or cheap cork, rods that I'm accustomed to using! I've only had the rod & reel for 3+ weeks so I can't offer any opinion on the long term durability but I have already caught plenty of bluegill and redear sunfish along with a couple of 3/4 lb bass... it handled them all without any issues and is a pleasure to use. At this point I'm a new Okuma fan and highly recommend the rod.

Una excelente caña Ultra Light para pesca, yo la uso para las Truchas, lanza señuelos pequeños sin problema, no hay que olvidar que al ser una caña para pesca Ultra Light se deben respetar los parámetros de linea y peso de los señuelos.
He logrado sacar Truchas de mas de 2kg con esta caña, te diviertes como no tienes idea usándola con linea de 4lbs calibrando el drag de tu carrete de manera optima.
Una excelente inversion. super recomendable.
Y pues bueno lo malo, la caña llegó fracturada de la parte superior además de q las últimas 3 guías están ligeramente desalineadas.
Pediré un reemplazo.
la elle est cassée
when I receive the rod the eyes of the rod was crush. and the fist time last week when I take it to fish with i caught a bass about 3 pounds and the rod broke in two
it really fun
