ugly stick ul rod, and i like shimano reels. personal preference entirely
Ohhh one other tip. Spring for the Good line. You want a line with very little memory like a braided line or co-polymer. Stay away from pure fluorocarbon or mono-filament. Hybrid lines are great. I like yo-zuri ultra soft hybrid brand line.i picked up some 4'6" ugly sticks - just looking for 2 reels now
The ugly stick combo should work, but remember to get the cheapest outfit you can. Once she has to bait her own hook, or handle fish she'll strangely lose interest in fishing.
On the other hand this might be an easy way to get a second rod and reel set up for yourself so buying a couple hundred dollar rig on the chance she won't actually want to fish could work to your benefit.
Good buy they are pretty dependable rods. A lil stiff at first but now on there 2nd season it seems to have loosened up a bit and has good response to light strikes.i picked up some 4'6" ugly sticks - just looking for 2 reels now
