Re: Beginners Rod? What do you Think?
I think It maybe a little heavy for trout fishing, its hard to have a trout rod and a bass rod all wrapped up into one. It may be a good small mouth rod, but for native trout it would be hard to deliver a delicate presentation, particularly is the water is low and clear. Sometimes its better to wait for the rod you really want IMO, and there is a reason they are trying to move it.
Yesterday, I went trout fishing with my good friend, I was using a 4 weight and he had a 7 weight, creeks where low, all he did was scatter the fish almost every cast. But if we went down to the river, I am sure it would have been the choice for larger flies and bigger smallies.
