Pink fishing gear and light-up rods!

Updated on December 31, 2014

I am a bit of a girl when it comes to some things, I must confess. I love pink and purple and sparkles and unicorns. Seriously, I'm not kidding. I grew up with an older brother and no sisters, though, so my world of fluffy pillows and canopies was oft interrupted by Ninja Turtles, Transformers and tearing a hook out of stinky, wet creatures.

I started fishing with my mother so young I can't remember. We once had the Sacramento Delta running behind our apartment buildings so fishing was just a what to do and my brother and I were always out there (him even more than me) trying to catch "the big one".

We all have had our stories when it comes to these things, but we had heard tale there was one giant, prehistoric, dinasaur like fish out there. A carp, as it were, that ran as big as a dog or what-not. Once or twice we would have hits so firm on those lines it was a wonder we didn't spend more time in the water with those beasts.

Sometimes it was hide-and-seek with the neighborhood kids but almost always we fished. When we were older and moved away from those apartments my mother took us often to the lake to make up for it, allowing us to look for Perch, trout and more in places like Don Pedro and Mono and Cherry lake. Places like Basin Creek and whatever river along the way (we ended up on someones private lake once!) we could fit our lines into.

Rest assured I did not lose all of my femininity behind the tear of a good hook or the gutting of that nights grillin'. No, I found something that not only carried my way-too-girly pride like a giant scepter, it screamed loud enough that everyone else had to pay attention too!

Here, my friends, is a pole that is not only obnoxiously pink; just as the sun begins to set and people begin to squint at their tips on the horizon this thing starts to come to life. LED Lights GALORE (let me tell you, it's blinding) spin an obnoxious river of lights at your hands as you reel in. This is not a gentle light; this is obscene. It's beautiful. It's perfect for a girl like me.

I've had them (I have a freshwater one and an ocean one) for several years now and they're still loyal!

You don't have to be a girl or feminine to tout pink around and be proud of it.

I just know it's MY girly side.
