Re: does my lenghth really matter?
I have a 5'8" 4 weight that I use really on just a couple small creeks. Could I get away with something a bit longer, maybe, but I bought it because I was struggling with my 7'6" 3 weight on this creek, the overgrowth in places is just too close.
I'm actually pretty surprised at the distance I can get with the rod when I hit longer pools. 20' - 25' is about the limit, but it get's there.
