8 wt for striper
After listening to a great presentation from an area guide, I have to get an 8wt for stripers on Lake Texoma. I tend to enjoy a more relaxed casting motion as I have a Sage ZXL, Winston WT, and TFO professional in various wts.
What 8 wt rod would you recomend for stripers as I know you need one to punch your flys out there. In addition, what would be your reel of choice. I suppose this reel will be worked and I may need to spend more than I have in the past.
