Re: Can a 10 wt rod handle all of this?
Then there is the issue of wind.
In the Caribbean I've been beaten by the wind using a 9wt. Upping it to a 10 wt this year. I'll take an 8 for th calm day, and whe that wind kicks up, I'll kit it with the 10.
Using an Orvis Hydros. A top of the line light rod helps.
