Practice...practice...practice...the 5.5 ft. rod was kind of a specialty rod, I have two of these rods, one a 3-4 wt. and the other a 4-5 wt. and I use one reel... with 4 wt. line on it...it seems I end up in the real small creeks and catch rainbows and speck's with it...(southern Appalachian brook trout) real easy to handle in the grown-up conditions of which I fish.
How did you come up with a rod that is 5 foot 3?... sounds like my old girl-friend!
