Bloodhound: I think I know exactly which road you are talking about
. When I fish the North Tongue, I usually do the same thing. Next time you are in the Bighorns, you should check out some of the canyons, I think they are more fun, although significantly harder to get to.
Oregonsteel: Totally. I often dont even pull my line out past the end of my rod when stream fishing. The only thing is that I do want the rod to work well on lakes and bigger rivers like the Bighorn and the North Platte too.
Thanks for the advise all, I ended up ordering a March Brown Legacy, sounds like just the ticket (other than being a little long).
