Im not adverse to buying a new rod, but if i can get by with what have that would be good to, at least for the time being

Thanks
Eunan,

You might be the motivation I need. I've been meaning to hit a few LargeMouth lakes in South Jersey. You want to drive over the bridge and meet me there? I use a 6 or a 7WT. A five can handle the abuse but throwing some of the bigger flies is a pain in the A@$ with a 5wt.
