Default Re: Affordable fly rod.

I know a guy who likes to fish for bass with an 11wt, but I've never felt the need to be that heavily gunned.
I usually take an 8wt, or when I have space, the 8 and a 6wt too
With the 8wt, I have no problem throwing the 3/0 bendback divers I tie for the local "salad bowls"
You might want to look into the Scientific Angler 7/8 Bass combo. I know stores like Dick's have it for $110. Some W*lmarts might carry them too. Less on-line
