Re: Rod weights?
Where I fish, there are many smaller specimens but the possibility of hooking an extraordinary trout are quite real also. I think the 9' 5wt is the perfect rod for my waters. And of the rods tried to date (14 month fly fisher) a fast mid flex feels best. Just purchased a 9'3" 7wt for night fishing the big boys and girls and will give a report after the reel I have matched to the rod comes in and I get a little water time.
