Default Re: Five Weight All Around Confessions!

As with most rod questions, this seems to come down to a matter of style and preference. I prefer a fast action 6 weight rod for streamers because I generally chuck larger, heavier streamers on bigger water (40-60 foot casts) looking for larger fish. I like faster action in the wind as well.
I do not fish streamers often, however. I prefer more moderate action rods for almost every other application.
