Anything BUT those stiff short rods that Charlie recommended! I prefer a light weight, medium light power, fast to extra-fast action 6 1/2' rod. Your mileage may vary... use the most sensitive comfortable spinning rod you own.

I agree. I'd suggest a 6-0 to 7-0 medium to medium light action rod. Charlie's method uses relatively little weight, so you'll need a fairly light action rod to handle such light weights.

SLIDER fishing is a technique not necessarily dependant on the bait, jig, or equipment.

Focus on Charlies writings about do-nothing and lift-n-drop and you'll do well.

That's true. I've actually put some of Charlie's concepts into my drop shot fishing. I believe fishermen make a big mistake by overworking their lures. Charlie's ideas on "do-nothing" techniques are excellent.
