If you are going to fish light line then I suggest a spinning reel. They tend to handle light line better.

Make sure your rod is rated for the line you plan on using. You don't want to use 6 pound line if your rod is rated for 8-12 pound line. I also want to add your bait or lure also needs to match the rating on the rod.

I think you should take a look at the smaller Abu Garcias before you buy anything.

Personally I dislike low profile reels. Mostly because I have large hands and they just don't fit right. If you go low profile you can't go wrong with an abu garcia.

Check out microlite bass proshop rods IM6 Graphite 4' 6" to 6'6" all ultra light. These rods are unbelievable for the money!!! If you can find a better ultra light it must be a G Loomis. Their notG Loomis class but you will be impressed. Use four pound test for yellow perch. Penn makes a great little reel 4200 SS spinning reel (TUFF). Great for trout too. I would go spining all the way for small fish.

A lot of big sporting good stores (Bass Pro, Cabelas, Dicks, Gander Mtn. etc) sell good combos for well under $100. I just bought an Abu Garcia/Berkely combo that was $79.99 w/ a $20 mail in rebate, not a bad rod/reel combo for the $.
