Re: Line weight/rod weight question
My 4wt is an 8', but I also have a 9' 5wt rod (with a different reel). I tried the 5wt reel and line on the 4wt rod yesterday when I was practicing. I was hitting my target fairly well at a range of distances, both into and away from a stiff breeze, but I did not try this rig on the water. Now it would appear that I have another excuse to go to the local pond!
